New Year's Resolutions
I have always written out New Year's Resolutions. I believe if it is written it will happen.
In fact, I always have written them out. Even in junior high school.One of my resolutions from 7th grade went something like:
#1 Get a boyfriend.
#2 Don't get another pimple
I should have learned from early age, resolutions don't work. I didn't get a boyfriend and I did get another pimple! Maybe I was asking for the wrong thing. OR maybe I was asking for things I couldn't control.
But I'm persistant.
Then there was the year that I had 5 small kids at home and my list included things like:
1 Get up by 4:30 every morning to allow for some "me" time.
2 Exercise everyday for an hour
3 Always have a spotless house
4 Always serve nutritious meals
5 Lose 20 pounds by February.
That is just a small sample of what I wrote that year. I say small sample because my list that I wrote out in my journal was 3 pages long. I kid you not!!!!
Somewhere between 7th grade and today........reality has set in.
I am setting goals this year, BUT I am making them attainable.
I am writing them down, because if they aren't written, then they are just a wish. I may have to really stretch myself but by dang I'm gonna do it!!!!!
Goals for 2010:
#1 Get out of bed before noon.
#2 Get dressed before Howie gets home from work.....no fair hoping he works late.
So, there ya have it. Goals...written down.....I look forward to achieving these resolutions! I know it's going to take hard work and perserverence but I know with a LOT of work, I can do it!
Happy New Year !!!!!!
