I rarely make resolutions. Instead I opt for a simple set of rules* to frame my world for the year ahead. They can be simple or as complex as needed but I typically don’t set more than five. Any more and you risk complicating the process and forgetting more than you remember. A few rules role over from year to year. A few get trashed and a few get added. Simple as that. Here is what I have jotted down for this year:

  1. two items subtracted for every one item added to the closet. (Items must be the same category- buy a dress and two dresses have to go). This format has served me well for several years now.
  2. Less impulse. More anticipation. (Isn’t the real fun of Christmas wondering what you are going to get?)
  3. Move body (exercise, walking, dancing, skipping, crawling around pretending to be a tiger while my toddler son rides on my back, whatever).
  4. write down memories (or video them)
  5. shoot the everyday (it’s often the candids that mean the most)
