I don't know about you, but I don't make resolutions anymore. I am still hanging onto the ten pounds I was suppose to lose three resolutions ago. I still eat chocolate when I want chocolate. Instead of pushing and taking lessons to further my riding skills, I have just been having fun with my horse this past year. I don't feel guilty either. Heck, maybe I should have candy bars in my pocket so I can eat chocolate while I'm playing with my horse. Losing ten pounds will be great when I decide to do it. Not by imposing an ultimatum on myself, that will end in failure and guilt, when I don't get it done under the "New Years Resolution" rules.
Don't get me wrong, I ALWAYS have goals I want to reach in several areas of my life and work towards them on a constant basis. I try to keep my ducks going in the right direction and in some semblance of a row. As long as I do that, I realized I don't need to impose any new rules on myself for a new year. I'm pretty happy with what I'm working towards, and I like eating chocolate when I want chocolate. It makes me happy, and isn't that the idea after all ? HaPpY NeW YeAR everyone !!!!!


  1. I like eating chocolate too, but I've decided that my goal for this year was to catch and eat a walleye.

  2. Spitting new years chocolate all over my screen while reading, lol!
