So I think I’ve finally figured it out.
New Year’s resolutions & me? We don’t mix too great. We hit it off well and are close friends for a few short moments before we inevitably (and usually suddenly) seem to forget about one other. Um…Ok, I forget, at least.
Example: this post of mine from last January. Remember “Bookworm Wednesday”? *insert crickets chirping here*
Yyyyyeah…so (ahem), um, I meant to completely forget about that.
(Incidentally, upon checking my Goodreads profile today, I discovered that I did read a whopping 13 books this year. Beat THAT, yo!)
Anyway, I have decided that this year I’m not making any grand New Year’s resolutions. I’ve got things I want to work on. But I always do — every new DAY, not just every new year. But no grand and specific resolutions.
I do want to read through the Bible in 2009 — which isn’t really a resolution; it’s just the kind of thing that’s especially handy to begin on January 1 since most of the reading plans start on that day (incidentally, if you’re looking to do the same, here’s a site with some reading plans along with an assortment of handy ways to access them).
Specific New Year’s resolutions, though? When it comes to that I’ve decided to follow my cousin’s lead on the subject. She has some great ideas which she blogged about so eloquently in January of 2008 and again in 2009. I like her way of thinking.
Read. Enjoy. Be inspired.
Seriously, though…you? Resolutions? Thoughts?
p.s. — Once again, this month I participated in Elizabeth Esther’s SATURDAY EVENING BLOG POST where participants add links to their favorite blog posts (from their own blog) of 2009. If you’re looking for some new blogs to try, check it out!
