Happy New Year y’all!
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. Mine was pretty good I have to say. Christmas with my in-laws and New Year’s with my parents.
Of course one of the topics of conversation was resolutions – the New Year wouldn’t be complete without them, hm? So, I thought about what I wanted to accomplish in 2009 and decided they weren’t actually resolutions, but rather promises to me.
What I learned about myself was that if I set myself up for very specific resolutions, I tended not to achieve them. So my promises are a bit wider and allow me to keep the promise without feeling like a failure – a common occurrence with resolutions for me.
2009 Promises by Beth
- Write every day, even if it’s only 5 words
- Read more
- Exercise regularly
- Keep away from foods I shouldn’t eat (food allergies)
- Be happy
Not an extensive list but promises I intend to keep, or I will be the one disappointed. What do you think? Promises or resolutions?
