Resolutions are stupid. Two years ago I resolved to go to Iraq. That totally didn't happen. And then last year I decided that this year I would just love people. And I don't really feel like I did that so much either.
This morning while I was sitting in bed blogging in my head (oh be quite, you know you do it too) I decided that maybe the key is making resolutions that you can't help but keep. I could resolve in 2009, for example, that I will:
-- Have a baby
-- Live somewhere where it rains a lot
-- Watch Friends on DVD
-- Go to the gym at least once
But that's cheating.
There are a few things that I really WANT to do in 2009 -- like be awesome looking again by the time my sister in law gets married, meet more wonderful people, build meaningful relationships, laugh and enjoy each moment as much as possible, start working hard to raise a wonderful young man ... you get the picture.
