But that's the trouble with making resolutions, isn't it? We rarely stick with them. We shoot for the perfect, all-or-nothing, and when we don't achieve it, or we have one back step, we completely give up.
Well, this year that's not happening! It's not that I haven't made any resolutions. I have. I have made the same three that I make every year:
- Do something to improve my health.
- Do something to improve my intellect.
- Do something to improve my spirit.
What will be different about this year? I'm not going to beat myself up when I backslide. It will be okay if I over indulge on an extra piece of cake, or if I oversleep and don't make it to church, or if I put a book down and don't finish it. It's not the end of the world, and it's not the end of my resolve.
So I'll keep writing, and hoping that I can post every day, but if I don't, I'm not going to beat myself up over it. I'll just write the following day!
Happy new year, folks!
