letting go

interrupted hopes

unrealized dreams

the unrealistic expectations I put on others
(mainly my four-year old)



emotional eating


striving for the elusive "inner circle"

being easily frustrated



my fat pants
(they're now just my pants)


other people's expectations

These things can stay in 2010. I don't want them coming into the new year with me. 

What about you? What do you need to let go of?


  1. - An interruption is temporary. Keep moving forward.
    - where a door closes...
    - (if this one works, can you tell me the secret?)
    - Why? Don't you always come out ahead? :-)
    - There's another kind of eating?
    - No such thing
    - You're already part of my 'inner circle'
    - margaritas help
    - margaritas help with this one too, actually
    - and this one. Wow, alcohol solves a lot of problems :-)
    - not so much this one, though. Um, remove the tags? I do that sometimes. Helps with the denial.
    - Why? You're perfect and your son is too.
    - Is this family related? Because we should have a margarita and talk if it is :-)

    Love you! Hope you have a Happy NYE.

  2. I think you picked some excellent things to let go of. Easier said than done, I know, but you can do it. Here's to a great 2011!

  3. I relate to so many of these, so many. I really want to let go of some unhealthy dependencies.

  4. I love this. And I love you!
    Here's to letting go...

  5. insecurity. i need to let that stay in 2010. ugg.

  6. well said! i need to let go of the constant need for perfection!

  7. i keep starting to write a new years resolution post but then i don't publish it because truly? i sound totally crazy. not ha-ha crazy, like nutso crazy. so i guess letting go of the nutso crazy parts of my personality are on the list, though i am afraid to get more specific. ha. i identify with many of these, especially letting go of what other people think. it is such a handicap.

    happy new year! maybe i'll go edit that post. :)

  8. I bet you sound less crazy than you think. I have a feeling if more people let go of what other people thought, we'd all sound a lot more "normal" because we'd admit to a lot of the same quirks.

    If you do go back to edit that post, I'd love to read it!
    Hope 2011 is full of wonderful things for you!
