decide

It seems that most of the blogs I have read this week are addressing this whole New Year's Resolution thing, so I decided that I wasn't going to do that. But I guess now that I've mentioned it, I'm doing it, aren't I? Quite frankly, I don't feel that strongly one way or the other about making them or not. If you do - great. If not - great too. I'm not sure it matters either way. As for me, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. Last year I decided to lose weight, so I lost fifty pounds. This year I would like to lose another fifty. We'll see.

Mostly, I think this is a good time of year to reflect on what you have done, and decide what you can do better. It is a clean start for those who need it. Although, I do think that you can make these decisions at any time. You don't need a new year to decide that it's time to get organized or eat right or get a better job. If the time is right, you can do these things at any time. For me, I can do anything I set my mind to. That is, if I make the conscious decision to do it. Once I have made the commitment in my mind, I can do it. Until then, well...

So what resolutions (read: decisions) have you made for yourself this year? And do you have the resolve to follow through with them?

Best of luck to you this 2006!

Resolutions - nah. Not doing them.

I'm not a resolution type of gal.

Certainly not a new year's resolution type of gal. I can make decisions any time - and I do. I don't need to designate one day a year for them ;)

I usually wait until February 1st to make my resolutions. That way the holiday effect has worn off and I'm back into my regular schedule and able to make coherent goals. I'll let you know if I make some this year ;)
