This is the time of year to make resolutions. Say goodbye to the old and in with the new. At least that's what they say, and I suppose they're right.
Except I prefer to call them goals, instead of resolutions, and I have a tendency to set goals all year long ('cause I need lots of improvement, I suppose).
Even though this is the way I do it, there are some things that I have resolved to do at the beginning of 2011.
I RESOLVE to continue my goal of listening to my children better.
I RESOLVE to save more money this year.
I RESOLVE to continue my workouts.
I RESOLVE to make four quilts this year. (Eek!)
I RESOLVE to focus on my spiritual goals.
I RESOLVE to have four manuscripts ready for submission.
I RESOLVE to keep up with my blog.
In my younger days, probably a hundred years ago or so, I worked as a legal assistant. So, I am familiar with the legal document called a RESOLUTION. It's a motion full of a bunch of these I RESOLVE's and often made in the corporate world. It is a legal and binding contract. Thus, I have created a binding contract for myself. (Skeery!) Let's see how I do.
Have you resolved to do anything this year?
