Looking Back at My 2011 Resolutions

At the start of 2011 I made a YouTube Video about 11 resolutions I planned on doing for the year. As 2011 comes to an end and looking back at the year I reflect on which ones I did and did not complete or am I still working on.


#1) Use non Rider Waite Decks – Yes, I was able to use non-rider waite decks in 2011. For almost the whole year I did “Tarot Fortunes” here on my blog where each week I featured a different deck. This way I would be able to try a new deck a week and use them in a reading.

Going into 2012 I will keep this as a resolution. I plan on studying the Mythic Tarot so that I could use that as my secondary deck. I just love my Rider Waite so much


#2) Get my book Done – NO, Sadly the book was not completed in 2011. However I did made progress and I am sure that 2012 will be the year I finish it. So hold tight people.


#3) Become a better reader – YES, I think I am in a better place as a tarot reader than at the start of the year. I learned more this year and I plan on learning more. I will be honest I don’t think I develop dramatically. It feels more like a slow move or change over the whole year. But a step in a good direction non the less.

Going into 2012 I am going to keep this as a resolution. I will try my best to go to some classes at The Tarot School in NYC. I am sure I will learn something from those classes that will help me.


#4) Teach another person tarot –  NO, I was not able to teach someone tarot. Thats ok, I am teaching many people through my blog and YouTube and that is just fine.


#5) Meditate more – Kind of, I tried to meditate a few times but I just did not follow through with it. However I have been thinking and contemplating a lot the last 2 months so that to me counts as “meditating”.


#6) Share More – YES, I feel I have shared more through out this year.


#7) Don’t get so stressed out – YES, I started to control my stress at work later in the year and when I got laid off the stress went right way! My stress has been low but was directed towards other areas in my life. Oh joy! lol Over all I don’t get so stressed.


#8) Say “No” when I need to, and “YES” when I need to – YES, I have learned to do things that help the family out without being asked. I still have my moments of “NO” lol but it has shifted through out the year.


#9) Blog more, YouTube More – YES, I kept to this one for use. 2011 was my year on YouTube. I have made 49 videos in 2011! That is a lot of videos! I also blogged more.

Going into 2011 I plan on doing card study videos on YouTube.


#10) Be a more genuine me – YES, In 2011 I have expressed my self more and started to be more genuine. Still working on this one though. There is still a lot that needs to be done for me to be truly “genuine” with everyone.


#11) Read more – Working on this still, I have not stopped buying books. Have I been reading more? Not as much as I wish I was. I need to work on this still.

Going into 2011 I plan on reading more.
