A New Year

I had a hard time deciding if I should first go back and see what my last year's resolutions were or first write this year's resolutions. I think I'll start with this year's, and then go back and check.

1. Patience. This is an ongoing resolution for me. I am definately more patient than I've been, and not as patient as I need to be. Probably will always be the case. The important thing, I think, is to keep working on it.

2. Appreciating what I have. This includes being grateful for my partner and my children, my whole family, my friends and support network. Also appreciating all of the material blessings that we have, including a roof over our heads, plenty of healthy food, running water and electricity ALL THE TIME, employment, and all the basics.

3. Let things go. Don't let all the little annoying things that happen hundreds of times a day bother me. Recognize that I control how I feel about things, I can be annoyed, or I can let it go. I can always choose to let it go.

4. Think positive. Dwell on what I DO want to happen, not on what I DONT want to happen. Focus on what is good, not what is bad.
