Resolutions

Okay, so the presents are unwrapped and being enjoyed, now it's time to reflect on the year past and prepare for the new one. I am all for it. This year has been good. I truly have so very much to be thankful for and feel blessed even when I'm crabby and complaining! I usually don't make resolutions, because I never seem to keep them. I find I don't need to purposely add to the long list of reasons I am often disappointed in myself. However, last year I made a resolution I was able to keep and that made other people happy. It may be mundane, but the cashiers at Wegman's were vocally grateful that I chose to make sure I weighed and sticker-ed all my produce items. One girl even remembered that I had mentioned it was my resolution. She was impressed I had managed to stick to it! Anyway, with one success under my belt, I have decided to do it again. I will be doing what most of America will be doing (at least for the month of January) and focusing on loosing weight. This is something that I have been needing to do for a while and never been fully committed to. It's so much easier not to bother excising and eating whatever tickles my fancy. Well, there is just too much of my fancy to tickle these days and I am ready to be fully focused. It will not be easy, but I think I am deserving of a healthier, happier, and also more attractive self. I deserve to look in the mirror and be pleased with my reflection. This will take some inside changes as well. So, I will be making a second resolution this year. I have already chosen to live my life in a positive light, leaving negativity out of my day to day as much as possible. When it isn't possible, and I get frustrated or really crabby, I tend to use inappropriate language. My goal to to drastically reduce the usage of "four letter words". Wish me luck and let me know what your resolutions will be this year!

You can do it! :) Be sure to focus on little goals along the way, maybe week by week at first. Maybe at the end of a week of eating well or exercising, or whatever your weekly goal would be etc., you could get Joe to watch the lil' guys and take a nice looooooooooooong hot shower and then pamper yourself with a new lotion or mask :)

Happy New Year to you! I was, or should I say determined to NOT have a resolution for this coming year.

Why? Well, I can never seem to keep them - LOL So, this coming year, whatever happens, happens - but, I want to be happier, despite what life throws my way...

Is that a resolution?

Thanks sister k, I plan to take it day by day and mark my progress - with rewards given to myself for reaching eavh goal! Need to keep myself motivated! Good luck on the trip! Navilyn, I think it's more of a taoism philosophy, but why can't that be a resolution too?
