Yep, it’s that time again, New Year’s Eve.  Resolution Time.  Time to decide how to Change My Life in the next 365 days…  Hmmm…  Some years I side with the folks who don’t make any resolutions and don’t set any goals because honestly, what’s the point?  If it’s something you’re going to do, you’ll do it anyway whether or not you’ve written it down on a list and set yourself a Must Do By date.  The rest of the time the folks who challenge themselves with a list of things they would like to attain always catch my attention because usually I need all the motivation I can get and sometimes a deadline is helpful.  However, if I’ve ever accomplished a New Year’s Goal in my life it was most likely an accident because I tend to start more projects than I finish, something my mother noted time and time again as a child.  Ooohhh – that’s something I could put on my list this year, finishing what I start!  Nah… where’s the fun in having everything completed?  It just means that you have to start something new all the time whereas if you have several projects going at once you always have something to work on.  Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself…

Okie dokie, here are a few things that have been rattling around my brain and just might be possible to complete in 2013:

One blog finished and posted every week
Lose 20 more pounds
Make more home-cooked meals
Attend a different church
Go spend some time at the ocean
Plant more roses

That’s 6 things…should be a manageable number and each goal is sufficiently different enough from each other to make life interesting this year.  The one I see as being the most difficult to accomplish?  Attending another church, something my husband and I have been “discussing” for over a year now.  The easiest?  Planting more roses, although I am particular about my roses, lol!  They have to be more than one color (not a solid color, red, pink, etc.) AND smell nice because life is too short to plant roses that don’t smell good.  The exceptions are miniature roses, because I’m not sure I’ve found any that smell at all so far, and my Climbing Joseph’s Coat – it’s so pretty I can overlook the lack of fragrance.j  But back to my resolutions…

<thoughtful silence> Nope, that’s it, that’s all I’ve got.  Six areas I’d like to see change in sometime during the next 365 days, although sooner would be better than later.  May your New Year be blessed and prosperous and may good things come your way in 2013!
