A Resolution for Keeping
Hi y’all. Lulu here with some Happy New Year wishes for all of you and some thoughts on resolutions.
At my age, I’ve seen quite a few new years roll by. Sometimes I’ve put myself in a pickle trying to make drastic changes for myself for the upcoming year.
I’ve tried focusing on weight-loss. Now, y’all know that’s not going to go over too well. After all, I own a restaurant. I’m faced with barbeque sandwiches, coleslaw, and banana pudding! Who could resist? Apparently, not me. :)
I’ve tried focusing on getting organized. I had a little better luck with that one, although it wasn’t much fun, I’ll admit.
I’ve tried the one about getting more exercise and brainstormed about more interesting or fun ways of getting active. I discovered I was much more the type that likes to sit on screen porches and rock in rocking chairs.
This year? I got smart.
I found a resolution that I needed to make that I’ll enjoy keeping: spend more time with my friends. Yes, my friends have been with me through thick and thin, murder investigations…you name it! I need to spend more time being a good ear for them and showing them how much I appreciate their friendship.
So there you have it! The secret to resolution success is to make resolutions we’re happy to keep!
Did you make resolutions this year? The easy kind, or the harder kind?
