So, How About those New Year Resolutions?

Still sticking to that diet of water and bananas? Still being a better person and helping the needy? Solved all the world’s problems? Maybe it is time to re-visit those resolutions.

Back at the end of December I chose the word purposefully as my guiding word for the year. (click for link to post) It has come into play several times over the last month. Most recently in my decision to cut back on my volunteer commitments to spend more time with my son. I also had to use it this morning in choosing oatmeal over the cinnamon and cream cheese frosted waffles.  Purposefully.

I was thinking today that maybe I needed to adjust my choice of words but decided not to. It is perfect for what I need.

Are your resolutions still working or do they need to be readjusted for what you now need?

  2. I don’t make resolutions. I just like to do things and if I don’t do them, I just don’t. Otherwise, it feels too much like a job to me and I have enough of those as it is.

      I need a guide point, something to keep my thoughts focused. That is why I chose a guiding word instead of made a resolution.
