What's Your New Year's Resolution?

I thought it would be interesting if we all made a New Year’s Resolution and posted it here. This way, you have a record of it when you forget it in two weeks :slight_smile: . Post away.

Years and years ago after breaking so many New Year’s resolutions my new and constant companion News Year resolution is not to make any. Easier on the psychy that way.

To Quit Smoking… that is a big factor in my life… my mother did it at 70 so maybe, just maybe I can do it at 54… 7 more packs to go, I wanted to use them all up by new year but don’t think I will make it… but here is something I received as an email and I think it applies to everyone… not just women.


You know, time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware
of the passing years.

It seems just yesterday that I was a young girl,
just married and embarking on my new life with my husband.
And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago,
and I wonder where all the years went.
I know that I lived them all…
And I have glimpses of how it was back then
and of all my hopes and dreams…
But, here it is…
the winter of my life and it catches me by surprise…
How did I get here so fast?
Where did the years go and where did my babies go?
And where did my youth go?

I remember well…
seeing older people through the years
and thinking that those older people were years away from me
and that winter was so far off
that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like…
But, here it is…husband retired and he’s really getting gray.
He moves slower and I see an older man now.
He’s in much better shape than me… but, I see the great change…
Not the one I married who was dark and young and strong…
but, like me, his age is beginning to show and we are now those older
folks that we used to see and never thought we’d be.

Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day!
And taking a nap is not a treat anymore…it’s mandatory!
Cause if I don’t on my own free will…I just fall asleep where I sit!

And so, now I enter into this new season of my life
unprepared for all the aches and pains
and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things.

But, at least I know, that though the winter has come,
and I’m not sure how long it will last…
This I know, that when it’s over…
I will enjoy the Spring in the arms of my loving Father…
and wait for my loved ones to come when their winter is over too.

So, if you’re not in your winter yet…
let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think.
So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly!

For remember that scripture…
our life is but a vapor, it vanishes away…
So, do what you can today,
because you can never be sure whether this is your winter or not!

You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life…so,
live for God today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember…

“Life is God’s gift to you.
The way you live your life is your gift to God.
Make it a fantastic one.”

May we all be healthy and happy with our lives.

  1. Quit Smoking
  2. Have more patience
  4. Lose weight

Wish me luck!

Happy New Year to everyone.

Someone else beat me to it…

The only resolutions I ever kept was to never make another New Years Resolution again.


To slow down while driving! I am a terror on the roads and I know it. For 2007 I’m turning over a new leaf. I’ve already begun. It’s hard but I feel if I keep at it after a while it will be second nature.

I’m not sure which New Years Resolution I will choose, but my main resolve is to be consistent in it for at least 30 consecutive days.:!:

My consistentcy is that I’m inconsistent

Happy New Year!
My New Year’s resolution is to send a birthday card to all my extended family, to let them know that they’re in my thoughts even tho we don’t see each other but once a year. I’ve got 76, not counting cousins, aunts and uncles! I’m sure that would brighten their day.

My new years resolution is to learn how to sell things on e-bay. I’ve always bought things and it has been very easy. So now I want to SELL things! I hope I can figure it out! Wish me Luck!
