I’m not really a believer in “resolutions” per se (although I’ve been known to make them). What I do believe in are goals and “give ups” (read sacrifices).
So this year my “give up”? Carbonation in all it’s forms. Yes, even (and especially) Diet Coke. Just so you know, I’ve done this with chocolate, so it’s not unthinkable or unbelievable, no matter how unlikely it seems. I’ve also considered sacrificing a few of my favorite words…but since I already used one today, it may be more than I can handle. It’s still under consideration, it just wouldn’t be for a whole year (1 day shy is all).
My goals for the year? I currently have one that I will be sharing publicly. I will be running another marathon (yes, just one…if two or three happen, great).
And I am still working on my word of the year. For 2008, it was kindness. I can’t say that I’ve been total successful, but definitely more aware. I’m considering patience, but I think that might be asking for it. Hopefully during my 14+ hours of travel tomorrow, I can figure it out.
