When I read this cartoon, it put a smile on my face. I am not one to make New Year's resolutions...why? because I learned a long time ago that they just set me up for failure. I learned in life there are some things I can control, and others I can't...and those others on occassion tended to come sweeping in and cause my resolutions to go right out the door!
I tried something new last New Year. I decided to pick ONE SINGLE WORD to focus on for the upcoming year. Something that would effect my life as well as my family's in a positive way. The word I chose was SIMPLIFY. And, I am proud to say I feel like we accomplished that in many ways.
So this year, I will be choosing a new word to focus on...just one word. I have a few rolling around in my head and plan to pick one by tomorrow so that I can begin focusing on it Sunday. I'll let you all know what I chose next week.
In the meantime...I pray everyone has a Blessed and Safe New Year's Eve!! I have so enjoyed getting to know each of you this past year and look forward to seeing what you all have up your sleeves for 2012!!!
