I will try to spend less time around negative people (mostly my family so yes, I want to spend less time with my family).
I want to spend more time at the beach and in the woods than I did this year.
I want to continue to work out hard.
I will continue to eat mostly real, homemade food and not food out of a box.
I want to continue to grow out my hair.
I want my house to sell!
--I'm located in Western PA.
--I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
--My hair is 3B with some 3A, texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.
--My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.

    I want to:

    Pay attention to the present moment instead of reminiscing, regretting. "Be here now."
    Avoid fights with sister.
    Consciously be grateful for so many good things!
    Go out more, fight being shy.
    Continue exercising. Eat less salt.
    Accept all the really nice things people say about me as possibly true!
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
    Every day is a gift :flower:

    My house is little. I only need the small back done, and the bathroom, and my bedroom. Living room would be nice, but it can wait.

    Really, it's not all that much. It's just a pia and who knows what it will cost?

    1) Learn to "let go" more when I'm upset. Ask myself, "is this REALLY a problem in the grand scheme of things?
    2) Keep disciplined about hydration so as to avoid gout attacks.
    3) Keep disciplined about wearing my ankle braces.

    AND

    4) Get bold enough to try a perm rod set. ;) I love my 2b/2c curls but I'd love to try the world the 3s and 4s live in.

    I found out fairly recently that my BP, BGL and cholesterol are all on the high side of normal so I need to get my diet sorted and stick with the good stuff (frustrating as I don't have a bad diet as it is).
    Get our finances in order.
    Continue this years effort in being more sociable and in keeping in touch with people.
    Take time out for me and not feel guilty/lazy about it.
    I'd say get a new job as I always say that but given my second point (above) don't think I'll manage it.

    Just curious in judging by your name, you wouldn't be Italian by chance would you? I ask because that's my family's home country.

    I like going into the new year already doing my resolutions. :)

    I want to keep doing my yoga regularly.

    I want to finally finish my foreign language that I'm studying. (Malayalam) I'm almost halfway through, and I think I can finish it.

    I want to spend loads of time with my new granddaughter.

    I want to grow out my hair. I actually think I can do it this time after the eleventy millionth time of trying to grow it. :)

    Thought of another one - learn to crochet, which I've thought about doing before. I was talking to one of the patients tonight who was crocheting the cutest little owls, she said she taught herself off the internet so I think I'll have a try.
