Goals Not Resolutions

nothing like the fresh start to a new year that makes me want to throw out everything and start over. realistically speaking that isn't possible. but there is nothing like the promise of new possibilities, uncharted territory waiting for me to discover it, a better you (me). every year i flock to my obscene amounts of stationary and select a pad on which to write my resolutions on (that alone is a task people). i carry them around with me everywhere i go in my planner so that if i need a little reminder of what they were they are right on hand.

this year though i want to really reevaluate the way that i look at them. i always get a sense of disappointment when i don't complete them and that is not what resolutions are all about. they are set points that you have predetermined for yourself to meet. they should bring you enjoyment and satisfaction not impending gloom and doom. i want to view them as goals, as a journey i have set forth on and these will be little (or big) stops in between.  

i am sure as the year goes on, i will add to my list of goals but i wanted to predefine where i am headed. i wish you all the very best in this new year and much success in your goals or resolutions. i also want to thank each and every one of you who has stopped by this blog. pretty much all of you are silent readers but you took a moment of your time and shared it with me and that is invaluable.
