I do not make New Year’s Resolutions.  Haven’t since… well, I don’t remember when, but it’s been quite a long time.

Why you may ask?  Well, 2 reasons:  1) I don’t like to set myself up for possible failure; and 2) What would I resolve to do?

– Lose weight?  Umm… no thanks, still trying to keep my weight steady (thyroid problems and all).

– Make more money?  Well, unless a) I win the lottery (which I don’t play); b) I get a raise (bwahahahaha); c) my jewelry sales take off like wildfire (mildly possible), I’ll just be happy to break even at the Casino on date night.

– Quit smoking?  Sure, anything’s possible, but I’m not going to announce it to the world when I do.  I don’t need the pressure from others when I have enough of my own.

No, I think that I will resolve the same thing I do every day of the year:  To be the best “me” I can be.  If those other things happen (minus the weight loss), then bonus points all around!

Have a wonderful and safe New Year’s Eve, everyone!

  1. Nice writing style. I look forward to reading more in the future.

  2. Ma, <3 you to death for your "resolutions." Me, I need to lose thirty pounds (I blame marriage! lol), but I honestly don't really care since Erik loves me how I am! 🙂 Resolutions don't work (according to CNN) unless you don't share them, so maybe that's the ticket….Anyways, <3 you and Dad and see you in a bit!!!! (And a few lbs lighter on my side) soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 ")

  3. oooh And PS, LOVE Calvin and Hobbes, which is what I got the hubby for X-Mas! 🙂

  4. Well, you can guarantee I won’t ever pressure you about your resolution… unless you want me to 😉
