Resolutions

I tend not to stick to resolutions. Every year, millions of us say we'll lose weight, get organized, have more time for family or whatever it is that we think needs improving and every year resolutions are broken within a few months.

I've decided not to do the typical resolutions. So, I vowed to do three things this year...

1. Eat healthier. I could lie to myself and say that I'll do a lot more exercise and eat only organic products, but reality is a bitch and I know that will never happen. This covers a lot for me and I've been slowly changing my eating habits and it's working well.

2. Be happy. I just want to be happy. I don't care about having more money or being able to go on vacation, I want to wake up and be content with my life and myself.

3. Write more! I know that this will thrill my fellow bah. I've been horribly neglectful and I want to do better. I won't put limits on how much I'll get done, so this way I can write because I enjoy it and want to improve.

One of my friends emailed their resolutions list to me and my eyes almost fell out of my head. She has over 40 resolutions. 40! And I know her, she feels overwhelmed constantly and I can't believe she will stress herself needlessly. I told her to be a bit more realistic and cut a few out. Her response? "My life is a mess and I need all of them to get back on track." I feel so bad for her because by April she'll be a gibbering mess and maybe three of her resolutions will stick until the end of the year. She won't listen though, and she does this every year.

Oh well. I hope everyone had a wonderful NYE and will have a happy and prosperous 2009.
