Happy New Year! by Wayne | Dec 30, 2015 | General Interest | 1 comment ]]> 1 Comment M.A. Bell on 2 January 2016 at 12:25 PM Happy New Year , Wayne. I have decided to carry on my tradition of making at least one resolution I know I will be able to keep. Last year I resolved not to climb Mount Everest, and i was spectacularly successful. This year I am resolving not to buy another horse. More difficult, but with my family’s help,particularly that of my husband, I feel I have a good chance of success. On a more serious note, I have some other resolutions. Not the “lose weight, make more money” kind of resolutions, but rather ones that are harder to quantify but may in fact have a bigger positive impact on my life. I resolve to like myself more. Not love myself, I think we all do that even if we don’t acknowledge it. But like myself. Not as easy to do as it may sound. I resolve to find, make or steal more time for my friends. This is an important one, and feeds into the first one. I hate feeling guilty about neglecting my friends, and I need to stop that if I am to like myself more. I resolve to be kinder to people. This pertains to my family in particular, as they often take the brunt of my frustrations that are engendered elswhere. Again, this links back to resolution #1 . Those are the big three – I hope I can be successful to some degree with all of them, but I realize it takes time to make inner changes, and so I am not going to limit myself to just this year. I plan to keep working on them for the rest of my life. Love to you and yours, M.A. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
