New Year equals resolutions - a basic, well known equation.
Resolutions tend to go out the window around the same time the foresty fresh scent has left the building along with the needle-less tree. You will be stepping on those little snarky dried up needles for weeks, months to come - every time you grab your foot and hop around you'll have a quick little jab of guilt about those forgotten resolutions.
This year my resolution is simple - No more resolutions. Instead, I will try to look at my failure to comply in a more positive light.
No more feeling guilty for not exercising more or not keeping my house in perfect order. I will view the hopping around with the dried up needle in my foot as my exercise for the day. Also as having done the vacuuming for the day - and BONUS! Doing the vacuuming without benefit of electricity thereby also saving energy. It could almost be called The Trifecta of Resolution Resolution!!!
Jeez! I feel kind of giddy, tingly even. 6 and 1/2 hours into the brand new year and I already have this whole resolution thing under control.....oh, wait, that tingly feeling is the hole in my foot where the pine needle jabbed me. Well, I guess I better go find a band aid, that is, if I can remember where I put them . . .
