Auld Lang Syne
So, this year I'm trying something new. I am actively resolving not to resolve. I mean, resolving to do something has never really motivated me to do it before, so why set myself up for failure? Besides, life's too short to keep losing the same five pounds anyway.
I think the better plan of attack is to be happy with what I have instead. I have plenty of shoes and clothes, so why buy more? Am I healthy? Yes. Is my family healthy? Yes. Am I happy? Yes. You've got the idea. This resolution stuff seems kind of silly when you look at that way.
I am looking back on 2010, and I have to say that I'm pretty happy with the way it's wrapping up. I finally had the chops to go ahead and start this blog, and everyone seems to be really enjoying it. Our readership is growing by leaps and bounds. I am working on lots of new ideas for the new year, including a weekly dinner menu guide, which I think everyone will really like. There are other plans afoot, but I'm going to save those so I can surprise you later.
So, in honor of 2011, I think we all need to try and be happy with where we are in the world. From where I'm sitting, we're all doing pretty well. If you're healthy and your family is healthy, what else do you need anyway? Certainly not more shoes.
