Prompt:What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it?

1. I want to become a yoga teacher, and teach 2-3 classes a week by 2012. This was my New Years Resolution the last 3 Years, and I finally did it. Yay me!

2. I also want to stay with my morning meditation practice. I have been working on this, and I feel like I have a pretty good head start to make this one happen as well.

3. I want to spend more time practicing Yoga, and not just asana, but additionally the Yoga in my daily life, in my driving, at the grocery store, with my fiance, and at work. I want to try keeping the yamas and niyamas engraved in my mind, and keep reading spiritual text to stay inspired.

4. I want to try to spend more time with my brother and his fiance.

5. I want to try spending more time focusing on myself instead of on what others are doing- Try to be less caught up in the drama around me, and choose to stay focused on what I am doing, finding ishvara pranidhana in my action, intention and speech.

6. I want to try creating a ritual for my yoga practice to do each day.

7. I want to try doing one thing at a time and finishing these things before moving onto another thing.

8. I want to try letting go of my need to ‘hurry up and get there’- whether that’s Friday, Summer, the store, or simply to the next pose. I want to try being in the moment more, and being more mindful.
