    The year 2011 was definitely a crazy one for Kate Gosselin.

    Aside from raising eight kids, the 36-year-old endured the cancellation of her reality show, Kate Plus 8, had a run-in with the law, landed a new job and even completed her first marathon in Las Vegas.

    So what kind of resolutions is Kate making for 2012?

    "I don't typically make New Year's resolutions because I'm not one to make drastic changes just for the sake of making them or just because the calendar starts over," Kate writes in her latest blog post for CouponCabin.com. "However, I do aim for certain things as I organize and prioritize my life all year long."

    Some of those things include projects around the Gosselin house.

    She writes, "This year, I learned that if I want to accomplish something, whether it's hanging a picture in my home, building a chicken coop or running a marathon, it's all possible if my mindset is one of determination and positivity!

    "The year of 2011 for me was a year of gaining complete independence, and learning to look for solutions in every situation instead of focusing on the problems...I've always said that I don't live apologetically; I live passionately! A great way to do that is to learn from the past and make it better in the future."

    Here's to a bright new year for the reality mama!
