Well, that’s the bad thing about having a public blog. You may be able to run away from last year’s resolutions. You may be able to escape the fact that you haven’t made one ounce of progress in those lofty goals you set last year. But I cannot…
It’s here again – The new year. I read my post from last year – it was in my not so humble opinion, well written, well said, and well ignored. Every year, no matter how hard I try to NOT create ‘new year’s resolutions’, I find myself wanting to start anew and lose weight, reduce debt, go back to school, read more, etc, etc, etc. Last year, I started talking about setting goals instead of making resolutions (not in my blog entry, but among my family). Maybe this year, I will create a constitution for myself and my family. I don’t know how to make this time any different than before, but as with every preceding effort, I want to believe this time will be different…. My prayer from last year still holds true today:
What must I do to be saved from ‘eating too much’? What must I do to be saved from ‘credit card debt’? What must I do to be saved from ‘realism’? What must I do to be saved from ‘my same old ways’? What will make this different from last year, last week, last night? Am I the only one asking these questions?
I’m still asking those questions. I still don’t have the answers.
