A lot of people I know no longer make resolutions, but I like to keep with the tradition and make a short list - and I don't put things on there I don't think I can keep. Why make myself miserable? Why start out a new beginning by tagging on a struggle? I want change, not added insanity. Instead I try to list goals that are pleasant, positive, and attainable with only a little work or a minor lifestyle change. Like the year I resolved to spend more time with my Oldest son, and less time poking away at a calculator and stressing over bills. Consider it done! I managed to keep both of those resolutions, and feel I'm better for it.
I'm still mulling over what this year's list will be, but I saw this saying on a friend's myspace page and I feel it's a good motto to adopt for 2007. At the very least, it's a step in the right direction.
Besides, who doesn't want a few more "worth it" moments?

Tomorrow hubby is back to the grind, so we've decided to do get out of the house for a bit and do a few errands and things - drive the boys around. Toward the afternoon I plan to work on my demons a bit - if I can keep out of the new books long enough to do what's necessary!
