The day after the first day of the new year, it’s probably safe and sane (well, sort of) to chat about new year’s resolutions. I’ve made many of the same promises to myself on the first day of every year for about 20 years running. I won’t go into detail, but suffice it to say, it’s a bit disheartening and a little embarrassing to admit that many, possibly all of the resolutions on my 1999 list (going hand-in-hand with the turn of the century list), are theoretically on my 2019 list. Now, understand, these resolutions on my yearly list aren’t earth-shattering or life and death promises that I remember but certainly (in my view) doable by the end of each year. So, why haven’t I been able to mark them off my list at the end of the year?
Well, I AM a procrastinator to a degree so that’s probably the biggest reason. On about the third day of each new year, never fails, I’ve forgotten about my list and poof, every item is now off in the ether somewhere. I do write them down but then either don’t save the list on my computer or I lose the piece of paper and don’t have time or inclination to write and save another list. That’s mostly why I don’t get those resolutions into the “checked off” column. In my opinion, there are a couple of things I can do going forward to correct this situation. The most blaring and glaring action would be to just NOT write a resolutions list. Sounds like a great idea. I think I’ll write that down.
2019 Resolutions: None, except to say – have more fun! THAT I think I can do.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
