January 1, 2011 - Already

People always say "Time flies when you're having fun!"  I usually reply with "Even when you're not..."  Part of that response is my sarcastic nature and part is just plain practical truth.

Everyone talks resolutions or anti-resolutions or goals or promises this time of year - from the lofty high-minded and ridiculously impractical to the super-detailed-finite-box-you-in-destined-to-make-you-feel-like-a-loser-by-January-12th type.

Me - I've thought of both of those sorts - pitched them - and come up with some ideas for life.

In general (not just 2011) I want to:

Love more and Yell less
Live more and Complain less
Do more and Postpone less
Learn more and Worry less
Enjoy more and Owe less
Play more and Weigh less
Listen more and Talk less
Give more and Take less
Pray more and Criticize less

Right now that's More or Less where I'm at!

I'll keep you posted!

Here is mine! :)

My new Years Resolution this year! I plan to Live, Love, and Laugh! :)
If I lose weight - great. But by living, my girls will learn to appreciate life. I plan to love my hardest - and show my girls that loving is important. And last but not least, we will laugh! Through happy and sad, we will find the good in life and laugh and be healthier by laughing!
