Resolution, Schmesolution

Okay, so now it's January 2nd of the year two thousand ten.  I remember being a kid and figuring out how old I would be in the year 2000 and thinking I'd be lucky if I wasn't dead, that was SO OLD.  Now it's ten years past that.  If I were to revisit my ten year old self I'd probably be horrified, and a bit fascinated that I was still around.

Anyway, since yesterday was a time for scarfing and watching parades and football games, today is the time to evaluate my life and make decisions about what I want to change this year. 

Typical resolutions run amok in my mind.  Be more consistent in getting to the gym, eat more fruits and vegetables, lose weight, find a new hairdo that will make me look like I'm 25 again .... all good and wonderful goals.  But the things I want to work on most are of a different sort.  So here are my resolutions:

1.  Allow my heart and spirit to be more generous
2.  Be more forgiving (with others as well as myself)
3.  Begin each morning with an entry in my gratitude journal instead of at the end of my day thereby beginning each day with a mind to appreciation of what I have been given
4.  Allow myself to laugh and cry each day if I need/want

I'm looking forward to this new decade and all the blessings and changes that come with it.  So I say, BRING IT ON!!

Love your title! And, you can cross items 1 and 2 off your list because you are already soooo good at those, my friend. Since I can't do my regular exercises anymore I am going to start walking. Let me know if you want to be walking buddies!
