New Year's Resolutions....It's All the Rage!

Does anyone freely admit to being successful with making New Year’s Resolutions? If so, what is their secret? I make them religiously every year and I’m not convinced I have ever been successful with them….at least not for the entire year. For the record, I usually make several. Perhaps ‘LOTS’ is more likely to describe my annual tradition. I have the usual suspects on my list….Lose weight and become fit. Get more sleep, be a better Mom, wife, daughter, friend…etc. Be better in general. I just wonder sometimes if those declarations are a bit broad. Maybe I should break it down a bit. Rather than saying I will lose weight and be healthy…I should make a list of things I need to do to reach that goal….an outline, if you will. Maybe instead of saying I will get more sleep, I should make a plan that works. That means winding down before I go to bed rather than doing things that seems to stimulate me and then try laying down. It’s possible that I might be a better friend/family person if I dedicated myself to specific actions I need to do to make that happen. Call more? Visit more? Hug more? It’s entirely possible that those on the receiving end might have other things in mind. Call less? Visit less? Back off my personal space and stop hugging me? At any rate, I know one thing that would help would be to actually write my resolutions down on paper…somewhere I can see it daily rather than keeping it in my head where the ink seems to fade much too fast. One thing that is certain, I do want to rededicate myself to blogging. Oh, I blog daily…in my head. (What is it with me keeping all this in my head? Then wonder why I can’t remember anything) Throughout most of my days, I seem to be writing ideas in my head and thinking…that would be a good thing to blog about. When it comes time to actually sit and type, I draw a complete blank. Seems as though the key to all of these issues I have just written about it to stop thinking and start doing. This is what I know for sure.

So, in the spirit of resolutions and seeing them through, I will throw out a list of ideas I have for my new year…

1. Lose weight and be healthy….it seems like the only fair thing to do since millions of Americans will be doing this as well. Besides the annual courtship of my fat has begun in the form of minute by minute TV ads, etc. I can’t resist.

2. I will strive to get better sleep. I’m not sure what the key to this is but I know what Dr. Oz tells me to do. I believe him.

3. I will be a better friend, wife, Mom, daughter and person in general. That includes but is not limited to judging others unfairly, having more patience and thinking more in a positive nature.

4. One more just for kicks and giggles. I want my life to be more organized. I want to clear the clutter and have a clean house. This should be good. (snickers)
