I can't say whether I've been doing this for three or four years now, but I gotta say it's very fulfilling. Reverse resolutions are satisfying. Instead of making a list of things I'd hope to do in 2011 (and will most likely fail due to my lack of dedicated initiative without competition or incentive), I look back and list things from the previous year that I DID accomplish. It's amazing what looking at a list (large or small) the is COMPLETE can do for someone like me who is a great project starter, but now so much a project finisher. So without further ado, here are my 2010 reverse resolutions:
In 2010 I will:
Student teach middle and high school choirs, and make a big impact on my high school girl's choir.
Be the first of my siblings to earn a MASTER'S DEGREE!
Survive the busiest year of our little families' life.
Get a fulfilling job teaching music.
Face my demons and accept that I have chronic depression, and begin the process of getting out of it.
Organize a babysitting co-op so I actually have time for nights out with my husband.
Ah. Yes, that was something! Now to go meditate on what I actually should work on this year...
