Happy New Year

So, it is the first moments of the year 2008 and the first thing my girlfriend says to me is, “What do you want to do this year?”

It’s a good question, if a hard one but let me give it a shot…

I’d like to spend more time writing and less time wasting time (TV, WoW, staring at walls, fighting with Day).

I’d like to spend more time living life than being afraid of it.

I’d like to be more organized especially when it comes to money and less overwhelmed by it.

I’d like to tackle things as they come on my radar rather than procrastinating.

I’d like to lose 35 lbs.

I’d like to be open to ideas and experiences, open to new things, open to all amazing wonderful opportunities out there.

I know she wants me to give concrete resolutions, things like “taking 3 trips this year”, “completing my novel by Memorial Day”, etc.  While those things are likely what I am going to share with her when she asks me again in a little bit, it is not really what I see resolutions as.  I see them as repositioning my energies.  Redirecting my soul.  Not concrete to do lists, but a spotlight to encourage me to develop as a human. 🙂

Yes, I am silly…but I feel good having this written down.

What do you want to do this year?  And what are your views on resolutions?

One more thing, I resolve to make my silly dog walk more…she’s getting entirely too lazy and so am I.

    Happy 2008.

    Cute house. We’re looking at buying in 2008, although we might only be able to afford 500 sq feet of condo/townhouse. We’ll see. Congrats on owning your own place.

    And speaking of that. I don’t think I have an addy for your new place. And so, no x-mas card was sent. 🙁 Help me!
