With the ending of one year and the beginning of another just hours away, do you make resolutions?
How are you at keeping the resolutions you make?
As the 2009 year draws to a close many people will begin 2010 with their lists of resolutions. Usually on the top of most list (especially women’s) is: lose weight/ eat better/ exercise more or a combination of two or more of these.
I normally don’t make New Year’s resolutions because I’ve never been good at keeping them. I’ve tried to lose weight (usually wind up gaining more). I’ve tried to exercise more (usually last about a week, maybe two). I’ve tried writing daily in a journal (usually do okay for a few days, then once a week, then once a month and then … ).
I thought about making a list of New Year’s resolutions, but then I thought better of it. Instead I came up with several things I want to strive for in 2010:
* To be a better family member to my family.
* To be a better friend to the friends I have.
* To be a better person to the strangers I meet.
* To do a kind act at least once a day.
I stopped by Tote Bags 'n' Blogs yesterday and read a very interesting post by Dara Girard entitled “New Year’s Resolutions for Writers.” If you haven’t checked it out already, drop by and give it a read. It’s very enlightening.
Check back tomorrow for a blog about New Year’s traditions. We’ve had a tradition for the past 28 years, no it doesn’t include alcohol … well maybe just a little for the adults.
(Be sure to check the Saturday, Dec. 29, post off and on as the January schedule of guest bloggers continues to change.)
What resolutions are you making?
