My New Year's Relaxo-lutions

Here we go again … time to put on our optimistic, can-do smiles and commit to completely unrealistic goals that, if we’re lucky, we stick to until mid-February. I nearly always start a new diet that doesn’t make it through Valentine’s Day. I vow to write more words per day, more days per week. I often start a daily meditation practice that quickly becomes an every-other-day, then weekly, then oh-right-that habit. I promise to be more attentive to my long-distance family members. No problem, until they start irritating me again. 

This year, I’m going to try something else. I’m going to make New Year’s resolutions I KNOW I can stick to. Let's call them New Year's Relax-olutions. Here we go …

  1. See this movie.

I’ll see Matthew McConaughey in anything. But a movie about male strippers???? Hell yes!! That's Matthew with the bare chest in the back, and Channing Tatum up front. It's called Magic Mike and it's coming out in June 2012. I can't wait!!!

  1. Do more research.
As an erotic romance author, I'm always looking for new ideas in terms of positions, dynamics, etc. This book looks like it will cover the basics.

And for my next historical, this looks like interesting source material. Juicy stuff, but highly educational. Perfect Relaxo-lution material. 

  1. Get organized
Or maybe I'll just buy a calendar I don't mind looking at on a regular basis. For example:

Too bad it’s sold out until June, but that’s okay, I always procrastinate when it comes to New Year’s resolutions.

    4. Get more sleep

Or at least lie down. I can't be responsible for what happens next. 

   5. Eat plenty of chocolate. 

I guarantee right now I'll have no trouble with that one. I've already met my goal and it's not even 2012 yet! Talk about an overachiever. 

That’s probably about all the goals I can handle for 2012. I don’t want to overdo it. That would defeat the purpose of my Relaxo-lutions, after all. So wish me luck! 

Whether you're aiming high or slacking like me, I wish you all the best in 2012. And if you have any Relaxo-lutions to share, bring 'em on! 

Lazily yours, 


Juniper Bell's next release is called Beautiful Obsession and is coming soon from Ellora's Cave.

OMG A Matthew McConaughey male stripper movie? I'm so there :) I wonder if I can con the hubby into going too...

June M. said...

Oh, I must see that movie! I resolve to read more erotic romance and eat more chocolate too.

Ursula said...

Ok first of all: LOVE your resolutions. I may have to steal your Relaxo-lutions idea.

Second: I have to see that movie too. Channing Tatum and Matthew McCaonaughey. YUMMMMMM!

How about eating chocolate while "sleeping" with Channing Tatum? Yummy!!!!

Juniper Bell said...

Susie - You're so right, I'd have no problem with that one either. Though I already do read a lot it, there's always time for more! LOL

Gillian - My hubby likes Matthew too, I just hope he doesn't mind when I scream and holler at those strip scenes!

June - Good luck with those goals, I totally support them. ;-)

Juniper Bell said...

Ursula - I freely gift you my "relaxo-lutions" idea. Enjoy!

bw - You're onto something there. But can Matthew M. join in as well? Pretty please?
