2008 Resolutions

I hate New Years Resolutions; I am the type of person who once I recognize a need for change or improvement would rather start trying to improving or changing than wait for some date on the calendar and fail after five days. I do look at the New Year as a chance to reflect on how I’ve grown over the past year, places I’ve been and things I’ve seen.
I’ve traveled a lot in 2007, I continued to help my daughter grow into an amazing young lady, I’ve stepped up to a new level in my career, my circle of amazing friends has grown, I totally enjoy some great hobbies and I am happy.
So in 2008 I hope to continue with the above mentioned and embrace the new things I discover in ‘08.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I am also not a great one for resolutions - but I don't find change very easy either. But I have recently given up Diet Coke (due to something called aspartame that my family was really worried about) and now drink only the occasional own brand that is aspartame free, so I figure that counts as my big change for the New Year.

I smoke (which is very naughty and bad for me), and I do periodically think about giving up, but it will be when I am ready, not because it is New Year.

Happy New Year to you, and I hope that it brings both you and your daughter lots of good things.
