I've been reading about all the resolutions being made out there in blogland for the new year. I have made them before myself - sometimes keeping them and sometimes not. I have decided for this coming year, my mantra is to just be - no expectations or living for something in the future, but merely accepting each day as it is; grateful for whatever comes my way.


  1. I agree, I stopped making new resolutions several years ago, just a promise to myself to take less from this planet than I did the previous year, and to be more considerate of my fellow man.
    I hope to visit with you often throughout the year, that's one promise I plan to keep :)

  2. I agree, my resolution goes just as far as that little poem I wrote! happy new year. pgt

  3. I just mentioned to someone that the one's I'll be writing out this week will have to do with goals for my writing, something I've needed to do for awhile. I like your idea! Wishing you a grand new year with the best of the moment!
    a bientot,

  4. that sounds like a wise woman....just be.....I like it!

  5. If only.... I had to make the resolution to have some hope of achieving my goal this year... so far... so good!

    the knee... still mending (My doc says it takes a year... I'm now at 7-months!)... but feeling good and literally taking it "one step at a time"!

    Happy New Year dear friend... hugs. Dixie

  6. I love it! Happy New Year to you.
