Back To Normal

Well, there seems to be a lil something missing in this corner...yep, our Christmas tree is gone! Just in time for the 3 kings to reach the stable and our Christmas glory has vanished until next year. All the little ornaments dated and safely stored away til next year, the lights all rolled up and sure to be come a jumbled mess by the time we take them down from the attic to adorn our next tree. It was a wonderful holiday season with much to bring a smile to my face. And now it's over, vanished into thin air just as 2007.
So, what's on the agenda for 2008? What are my plans, goals, resolutions? Simply put, I'm not making any. I try to live life as a good person. I do my best to be a good wife and mom, to keep in touch with important family members and friends, to spread smiles to strangers I meet on the street. I don't see any reason to change this pattern in my behavior. I always strive to be a good person, and really, if I consider all I have endured throughout my life, I think I am doing a pretty good job of it. There's always room for improvement, and that is what I will work on in 2008, just as I have in all the years past. But since it's a goal I have for my entire life, to be a good person, I'm not stating that as my 2008 New Year's Resolution. All those resolutions always fail me. I come up short when I place that title onto goals I have for myself. So, no resolutions and I will not fail. I will just do my best, be my best, and hope for the best...and in 2009 I can look back over another year and say, ""Hey, it's been a pretty good year! You made it! You are alive!" And I will know that I have been a success, for just one more year of my life.

Amen! My philosophy exactly. Be the best person you can be and let life unfold and take you places.

" The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will. "

You're half way there. ;) I too don't subscribe to 'resolutions' per se, it's more about self-betterment on a daily basis. What can I do today that will improve my outlook tomorrow? It's a daily struggle and the road is long...but in the end, each year I live to see the ball drop, signaling the end of one year, the beginning of another, I realize I've succeeded, if not only by being alive. :)

Happy New Year, from one sexy housewife to another!
