1/1/2013 Lorain, Ohio – Well, 2013 is here. Many of us have new year resolutions which we are embarking upon. In years past I have resolved to quit smoking, but I still smoke. One year I was going to lose weight by never eating again after 6 pm. I still snack at night. The list of my failed resolutions is long.
This year, I am approaching things differently. I have not made a new years resolution. Instead I have decided I am just going to try. This year I have a list.
- Try to write every day.
- Be positive in all my endeavors.
- Be kinder, gentler and more understanding.
- Thank God for all my blessings each day.
- Try not to gossip.
- Take more photographs.
- Be more creative.
- Love deeper.
- Worry less.
- Try to be a better person.
These are the things I will work on this year. I have written them down, printed them out, and will hang them on the wall where I dress and try to read them each day. Hopefully the list will serve me well and 2013 will be a great year.
Good luck with any new year resolution you may have. Oh, and Happy New Year!
