Resolutions or here we go again

New Year’s resolutions made the national news tonight. It seems 40 percent of us make them. The most popular resolutions are to “lose weight” or “exercise more.” On average, according to a fitness instructor, we’re gung ho about exercise for eight weeks. Some actually endure til March. Side Leg Raise 4

My personal new year begins with my birthday — in April. While everyone is gearing down in March, I am revving up. My wisdom is I am not going to let another year catch me short of reaching the previous year’s goals. Did I say short of reaching? How about miles away from reaching? Every April I give myself 12 months to reach those goals. By the following March, I always feel guilty and realize I need to get going — only 45 or so days left. I do believe in miracles but really? God does expect me to do my part.

To all my neighbors in this global village, may I say, go easy on yourselves. The light of each dawn, whether seen or just felt, beckons us to start anew. The opportunity to do better, reach higher, love deeper resides in the heart — all easily accessible at any time of year.

  1. I am still groping for a good resolution. Maybe “clutter-free life”. Along the way, I should read a few good books. Nothing like savoring ageless wisdom.

  2. Congratulations! I love your blog and have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. yomicfit.wordpress.com
    That being said, I will not be offended if you don’t want to follow the rules 🙂
    I just hope to share your blog with others.
