Well, so much for 2010.

I’ve been thinking about what to do for a New Year’s resolution.  I really want to take it seriously for once in my life.  I don’t think I have ever followed through on any I have made before.  Not sure if I even went a day or two on any of those.  But hey, maybe this will be the year.  Like I’ve never heard that one before.

I don’t want to pick a New Year’s resolution that everyone else picks.  Those like losing weight, quit smoking, etc.  Well, I don’t smoke.  And I don’t need to lose weight (at least I don’t think so).  So I need to think outside the box.  Something that would benefit me not just for the year, but for life.  So I’ve come up with 3 resolutions.  Not sure if I’ll be able to do all 3, but it’s worth a shot.  So in no particular order:

  1. Wake Up Earlier – If I can avoid sleeping in when I don’t have to, I might be able to make it a habit that I get up early.  I’ve come to realize that a huge amount of time is wasted on weekends that I sleep in.  So if I turn myself into a morning person, I won’t complain about not having enough time during the day to get stuff done.  Makes sense, right?
  2. Stop Eating Out So Much – Now this is going to be difficult to do because eating out is so flippin’ easy to do.  But by not eating out, this will force me to learn to cook more.  And if I’m doing the cooking, maybe I’m eating healthier in the process.  And I’m also saving money!  Sounds like a win, win, win.
  3. Prep Clothes for the Week - If I’m ever running late for work, which is more often than I want to admit, it’s because I spend time in the morning ironing or looking for clean clothes to wear.  So this year I will start prepping my clothes for the week on Sunday, and hopefully won’t have to worry about it during the week.  Might even let me dress better for work.  I’m pretty sure my co-workers are tired of seeing me in t-shirts and jeans.

Anyway, there you have it.  I challenge anyone out there to have 3 better resolutions than me!  Even if your resolution is world peace, at least mine are attainable.

    I have one – how about try to reconnect with your siblings? Sounds like an AWESOME resolution to me :)

  • Mike:

    Those are pretty hard to beat, actually. I’ve tried #1 before and have failed miserably. Best of luck to you!

  • Jan:

    Woah, looks like someone came out of blogging retirement!

    Those are great resolutions…I’ve been thinking about working on #2 as well.

    Happy New Year!

    You were at work? Guess we didn’t notice the jeans and T-shirts, then!

Today's Deep Thought

  • To me, truth is not some vague, foggy notion. Truth is real. And, at the same time, unreal. Fiction and fact and everything in between, plus some things I can't remember, all rolled into one big "thing." This is truth, to me.
