Get those resolutions ready!

Are you in? Are you going to make New Year's Resolutions?

If so, good for you. Remember that you want to keep your resolutions specific and realistic.

And one other thing you might want to do - especially if you have a blog. You may want to write out your resolutions. Sometimes just having something in print makes it seem more concrete, more real. You say words sometimes and they carry as much permanence as the air you breathed out while speaking them. But when it's in print and staring at you, it feels real. Like, oh yeah, it's going to happen after all.

If you're unsure about committing to the resolutions or don't want to set yourself up for possible (and public) setbacks, let me show you the lead. I will post my own New Year's Resolutions here, on New Year's Day of course, and I will update you on their progress. I have one major resolution so far and at least one other one that I plan on developing. I'm still giving it some thought as to how to phrase it correctly - can't be too vague after all. Of course, I'm hopeful of staying committed to my own resolutions, and I know my major one will be difficult but necessary at the same time.

Anyway, I'll post my resolutions tomorrow and then will check back on them throughout the coming days/weeks/months if need be. After all, if we're going to commit, we need to make sure we are in it for the long haul.

I'm hoping to post mine either later tonight, or tomorrow as well. However, I'm not calling mine resolutions.... :) Looking forward to seeing your list and posting mine, and helping each other stay accountable! Happy 2009 to you and yours!!
