Over the last two weeks I have read many blog posts and Facebook statuses about people’s New Year’s resolutions. My reading has prompted me to rethink my habit of not making New Year resolutions.
And as a result of my rethink, I have sort of made a set of resolutions.
The picture here captures those resolutions quite adequately:
I resolve to live more in the moment and fully appreciate and enjoy the trials and tribulations that I encounter.
I pledge to laugh more often and be a more enjoyable person to be around. (Yes, believe it or not, I am sometimes a little more grumpy than I need have to be.)
I also commit to expressing and showing my loved ones just how much I love them and appreciate having them in my life.
Although these “goals” are not really “SMART” goals (measurable etc), they are my goals for the coming year/years. They are simple to say and not so simple to live. However, this is my “work” for the coming years. To live, laugh and love.
Do you make resolutions? Care to share them? It is still free to leave comments here and they can be left anonymously if you are scared about me checking up on you.
