Maybe Just A Few This Time...

I've never been much of a resolution maker. If I did make any, I probably didn't ever keep them. So, I figured: Why set yourself up for failure? But as this year comes to a close, I seem to have changed my mind about it.
I decided I will go ahead and make just a few resolutions this time.
But I am going to be realistic about it.
Let's make some that we truly believe we can keep this time.
Because, after all - it's about time.

So I am not going to say "Get organized.".
Sounds too daunting. So I will instead resolve to:
1. Work on organizing my life.
This encompasses many different aspects, not the least of which will include tackling my mess of a desk, and also going through STUFF and purging, donating, selling, etc. Yes, I believe I can do that.
I am also NOT going to say "Exercise every day." I will, however, resolve to:
2. Move more.
I want to do it; I need to do it, and I think I can - and will - do it.
I am also NOT going to resolve to go on a diet. Because I am already a Weight Watchers member, and this will continue as an ongoing process. I do not need a resolution for this. I am living it, and I will not give up, even if I do have setbacks now and then.

My final resolution is by no means less important than the other two. Rather, it is probably the MOST important of the three.
3. I will MAKE more time to spend with family and friends.
I feel that this is necessary and desirable for SO many reasons. I NEED this. Badly. And I am going to make it happen.
If you read this blog with any regularity, you know that I seldom write personal posts like this. If you have managed to read this far without your interest waning, I thank you.

And a very Happy New Year's Eve to you!

I came across your blog when I was searching for California bungalows. I am having so much fun reading through your posts. Although I've not blogged for several months, I think I'm getting some inspiration to get back to blogging after enjoying your posts. Happy New Year!
