  1. Wow – this is crazy-cool! I think you have given me an idea for a new blog in 2012. 🙂 (I would say I’d do it this year, but my hands are full with a yoga blog I keep, a weekly volunteering gig I write lesson plans for, and a daily and weekly blog I committed to doing this year.) But once these things come to an end (which many of them will later this year), I think a 365 Resolutions might be right up my alley. Thanks for the insight! 🙂


  2. Hey Stef, thanks a lot for such a nice compliment! Good luck with all of your blogs, you sure have a lot going on, great for you!! I enjoyed reading smilekiddo last night and will definitely be reading it more! I’ll also check out your other blogs! Have a great day 🙂

  3. Wow. I LOVE this! I tend to avoid new year’s resolutions, because I consider myself more of a list maker (I make monthly to-do list of goals, and I keep a Life’s To Do List which I recently turned into a blogging project) but I never thought of doing 365 Resolutions. I may have to try this next year! Thank you for sharing your list with the world so that you can inspire a total stranger like me. 🙂


    1. Sometimes I wonder if I am crazy for making such a long to-do list but it feels so good to get the tasks done! I will surely check out your page tonight, we sound a lot alike! Cheers! Have a great day and thank you!

    1. Thanks! I’d suggest writing things down as you think of them if you are planning on doing 365, it’s much easier than trying to figure them out over a few days! I’ve already started a few for next year so I won’t forget. Good luck and have fun!

  4. I read your list. Quite impressive. That seems like a big order to fulfill, but I’m sure that YOU can do it. I’m a great beliver in ‘Do it yourself’ so if you ask for any help, I’ll have to say, “Do it yourself!”, which I’m sure you can do.
    By the way, review #267. I read your blog, and you said that you just did that.
    Great job kiddo.

    1. Uh, thanks for your “unhelp” Dad 🙂

      Thank you for reading and thanks for pointing out #267, I am going to update the list now. I love you very much, and really, thank you for everything. I know you believe in me and that makes my belief in myself all the much stronger.

  5. Just been looking though your list again! It’s really very very good… the do 10 items in one day is going to take some organising!!
    Is the plan to do all 365 in this year?
    I hadn’t really realised the scale of it before…
    Was this why your blog set up?
    Also, I know you’re going through some very personal not-so-easy times right now, you are an inspiration to stay so strong and focused and push through, as I know that is what you have to do.
    Amazing, that’s all I can say, you are truly wonderful!

  6. Oh my goodness – that’s one crazy long list! I’m inspired by it though and will create my own at some point! Congrats on the accomplishments and good luck on the rest!

  7. Hey 🙂
    You fairly seem to be getting through your list since the last time I took a peek. So proud of you 🙂
    But I reckon you should consider #309 completed cos you are kind to every single stranger who is lucky enough to stumble across your wonderful blog.
    Keep you the good work 🙂

    1. Oh Toffee, you are brilliant and as sweet as your name! I think I will take your advice and cross it off, I just need to go buy a new keyboard for my pc because that’s the broken item of the week! Love ya girl and thanks a bunch 😀

  8. Ginger, so good to see you back. Great to see you crossing some list items too [just read about the aquarium!]

    Ok, so in a bid to keep motivation, feel proud and satisfied and keep a roll on your items I thought I’d take a scan at your list again and see what you’re up against! Please feel free to reply saying keep my thoughts to myself, but I think the following points can be noted…

    So item 117, I made this last week, it is easy, quick, no effort and keeps good in the fridge to eat as and when! http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/food/homemade-caramel-sauce-in-5-minutes-2480531

    Item 189/190 – you can do them both in a day right?
    Also, internet shopping would easily sort out item 194. Hey, buy Christmas pressies, just one ahead of time – that’s done right?

    I bet 202 / 205 you’ve actually done this summer without even realising – yay or nay…

    237 – these little things so easily inspire peaceful thoughts. We get them cheap even in just a supermarket here, take a look. Put it someone to give yourself restful thoughts.

    270 – do it soon!!

    293/303/304 again – you can do these Ginger, no problem!

    307 -done every day on blog!

    295/312 – one word. EBAY!

    361 – I’d love this post!

    There’s even more on here you can so already tick off I bet!

    Much love x

    1. Holly, I love you so much for this! I am so grateful for such a sweet friend like you, thank you for your encouragement! You are right, I can get all of those done without too much effort. You really made my day and cheered me up. I suppose I’ve been semi-stuck on what I can’t do, but that is not the attitude I need to hold on to, otherwise it would make me a quitter, which I really am not. There are even some I can tweak on here and some that I’ve done without even writing about yet. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your encouragement and belief in me means more to me than I can ever express! Love you Girly!!

  9. Ooooh, I’ve met another compulsive list-maker. I like the crossing-out part, don’t you? I might have to crib off you on the “365 Resolutions” idea — excellent. And thank you for visiting and supporting the sites of other women bloggers.

    1. Lists are a lot of fun and I love crossing things off 🙂 I feel like I jinxed myself on quite a few things, but no worries, I am still doing what I can 🙂 Have fun putting your list together and thanks for the comment!

  10. i’ve never seen such a well organized list like this before – are you just going to add things left to do to 2012?

    1. Hi there, fivereflections, to be honest I am not sure how I am going to handle 2012, but I suppose I better make a decision soon!

      I know I am going to keep my list open but not sure if I’ll be coming up with a 2012 list like this, it didn’t exactly go as planned lol I suppose this week will tell! Thanks for reading!

  11. You don’t smoke do you!? I used too for 4 years (2006-2010) Then I managed to quit. I found it quite easy though. I had nicotine patches. I only smoked because I was into a ‘tortured artist’ phase. 🙂

    1. Yes, I do. I started because I was in a “I’m a super rebelous want to look cool teenager” phase and it has been a crutch ever since. I quit here and there and know that I can really kick the habit if I want, but never try hard enough. I will soon though, it’s disgusting.
