Personally, I advocate resolutions.
The promise of a new year makes all things possible. Objective inventory of one's attitudes, abilities, unused talents, desires for improvement and even forgiveness leads to personal growth.
This year, I am going to take more time for myself, time for regular exercise, time to serve others, time to write thank you notes, time to express and note gratitude. Time to praise other's accomplishments and seek for good in all things and all places. As my darling Mother ages, I want to take more time to learn from her, and honor her. And, as much as my dear husband, Fred, serves and helps me----I want to emulate him and serve him.
Noting these goals will help me keep tabs on my progress and make them measurable.
What are your resolutions? I'd love to hear them.
Here's to a great new year of style and personal growth. Welcome, 2009. Come right in.
