I have never been ready for a new year as I am this year. I'm determined to take the clean slate (so to speak) and make the best of it.
The past couple years I have done the ever-so-trendy-choose-a-word-to-be-your-official-theme-for-the-year thing, but I think I'm tired of that, and I especially felt like I wasn't all that successful at my word for 2008 anyway. (It was simplify, by the way, and the last four months at least have been anything but simple!)
This year I think I'll choose a scripture to be my theme. I'm not really sure which one yet, but I have a couple days to decide. I like the whole resolution idea, but have never felt like my resolutions last much longer than a few months. At least most of them. Usually one makes it the whole year, but it's always hard to say which one is going to win out among all of the things that I want to improve upon.
What do you do when it comes to New Year's Resolutions? A word? 20 goals? Nothing? How do you keep yourself motivated? (I bought a sign that hangs in my bedroom this year that says SIMPLIFY. I must say it did at least keep me reminded.) How do you keep yourself accountable?
Important questions, folks. I hope you have the answers.
Today is my mother's birthday and I know she would just love it if people hopped over to her blog and wished her a happy birthday. You could go to her personal blog: Out to Lunch or her fitness blog (did you know my mom is a famous fitness instructor? People sometimes even ask for her autograph and everything.)
