My resolution is to spend more time on my music. I've been neglecting that for almost 10 years now.

New Year's Resolutions wouldn't be so bad if they weren't always broken. I know personally I have made several resolutions and have broken them every year. I think where people go wrong is they say they are going to do this resolution and then they don't have a plan or a goal. So if you wanted to lose 50lbs. by the end of the year someone might just say their resolution is to lose weight. Instead of just lose weight say I would like to go to the gym at least 3 times a week and eat healthier meals so that by the end of the year I will lose 50lbs. There is at least more than the resolution there is also a plan on how to reach it. I think if america would quit waiting to the new year to make these plans though everything would be better. If you have the extra weight and are tired of it then get off the couch and do something about it instead of saying oh I will wait until the new year. So instead of making just a resolution I would suggest making a plan along with that resolution so it does not get broken.
I DID finally achieve my New Year's resolution from last year - to quit smoking. Although it took me well into September to finally find the will power. Thanks you to Webmaster, because now I have a PLAN to deal with the weight gain that has accompanied it!
My point is, sometimes we give up too soon and consider ourselves failures if we don't achieve on our first try. Last year my family wrote those resolutions down and one person mailed them out at different times of the year starting after March. It helped many of us remember our resolutions at a time less stressful than those following the holidays. Just a thought.
Happy New Year all!!!
