New Year Resolutions

As a younger woman, I would make New Year's resolutions and then attempt to keep them. Each year my list would dwindle and get simpler but no matter how I tried, the enthusiasm and resolve would disappear in a few months.

Now I am older, and supposedly wiser, I do not make a list of resolutions. I don't set myself up for another uncomfortable failure. If I truly am concerned about losing weight or getting more exercise, I will do it. If I want to stay in closer contact with my friends, I will do it. If I want to start writing, I will find the time to do it. My life is satisfying, genuine, reputable and uncomplicated.

Like the Fonz looking in the mirror and seeing perfection, I look at my life and decide to leave it as it is.

"Hope smiles on the threshold of the year to come, whispering that it will be happier." ~ Alfred Lord Tennyson
