Resolution, Schmesolution

I'm not feeling the introspective ambition.

I don't have any goals or resolutions for the new year.

There's nothing in particular I'd like to accomplish in 2008.

(Hmm. Unless it's have a second baby....)

I wish I was good at resolutions....

I mean, maybe when I get to a certain point next year when I feel inspired to do something or change my ways, then I'll set a goal. But New Year's Day itself doesn't fill me with a desire to jump in and make a change.

There's plenty I could change, however. I could resolve to keep my house cleaner, be less cranky, work harder on my music, re-learn how to play the guitar, exercise more regularly, read more classic literature, write more and on and on.

For now, I'm just going to enjoy buying a new calendar.

Is anyone with me?!

I am very excited to have my new calender up. We made photo ones for the grandparents and I ordered an extra one for us, so I get a year of cute pictures of my boys.

Absolutely! I love me a new fresh calendar. Resolutions stress me out. I don't like to set myself up for failure. That way, if something does change, it's a happy surprise!

I am glad there is a moment where I can say ... phew that year is over, let's start new. I agree if there are goals to be made anytime of year is good to make them,

Happy New Year :)

I don't make them either - people set such high lofty expectations and feel a need to make grand statements, which inevitably lead to failure - why would I want to join that throng of disappointment ??!?

However, like you, if, during the year, I see I need to make some changes, I do.

Basically, I have the same set of goals for all the time anyway - they are a lifetime thing and you can chip away bit by bit .. to be a better person, wife, mother, friend. All that jazz.

You can work on that every day, every week, every year. And if you fail, you just get up again .. rather than waiting for a 'special day' to start again..

Happy New Year ! :)

Yep- no resolutions here. Just things I'd like to happen, but I'm not necessarily setting it in stone!

Resolutions...they don't usually work for me. When I make a heart change than things get resolved. Buying a new calendar...good idea.

I just put my calendar up yesterday and LOVED going through and detailing my plans for 2008. That's about as close as I get to resolutions. :-)

I like the idea of a second baby! In fact, I'm working on that one myself as we speak but I think I'm a little closer than you. ;-)

yeah, resolutions are just depressing. I would rather spend the time being grateful for all the blessings of the last year.

I hear you! This is the first time in years that I haven't even pulled out my new blank journal to start the year off w/resolutions! *sigh* Maybe I'm just lazy. ;)
