Resolution or Repetition?

Well, the new year is approaching rapidly and as usual I have been comtemplating my resolutions. You've heard that old saying, "You're not getting older, you're just getting better"! Well, when it comes to me that is not the case. There are 4 resolutions that I have made for the last three years that I will be repeating this year. I just can't seem to get them right. I'm trying hard to make this part of my daily rituals, but for some reason always come up short.
Here goes: #1. Lose weight. #2. Eat more healthy. #3. Exercise daily. and #4. Read my scriptures regularly. Yes, I realize that #'s 2 and 3 would help me accomplish #1. It seems that I start out pretty gung-ho, but then before I know it I become just slow. Slow that is at keeping tabs on my resolutions. Well, as you know, they say the third time is the charm. Too bad this makes four. Ha-Ha! Oh well, all is good and at least I'm trying to resolve something. And when I do go to meet my maker, I may not be thin but I'll definately be happy.

My kids asked me what my New Year's resolution was. I replied, "Nothing, I'm already perfect." I know I am far from it but I did not want to think about what to work on. I sounds to exhausting. I think as long as we do our best and try a little harder each day it's all good. And you are right, Being HAPPY is more important than anything!

You are amazing! It was so good to see you today and I am thinking about my resolutions now. That is way better than last week when I was thinking how January and resolutions suck! Things are looking up!
