Forgive me father, for I have sinned. I started writing this post on the first day of this New Year. At the time, I had friends visiting yet felt compelled to obey my urge to write. And so I slipped away while said friends sat at my kitchen table drinking alcohol. In my friends’ defense, it was New Year’s Day and celebrating the brand new year seemed an appropriate theme for breakfast. Also, I may have pushed them into temptation with my counter display of all the alcohol I could find. Admittedly, I wanted to slip away unnoticed. Wine, beer, cheep champagne, mouthwash. I was without prejudice and so were my friends.
Confession over. Now onto the post …
Happy New Year, awesome readers!
With all this talk about New Year’s resolutions I thought I should share a little secret: They don’t work. And by “they”, I mean New Year’s resolutions.
Part of me wants to apologize because I KNOW how expensive gym memberships are. Another part of me wants to ask the person who invented New Year’s resolutions what they were selling that year. Since losing weight is one of the number one New Year’s resolutions of all time, I’m going to assume that they were selling a new diet.
That said, there is ONE thing I’d like to work on this year and that is my ability to control thoughts. Not everyone’s thoughts just my own.
Scenes of my ideal life in 2016 …
As you can see, I have great aspirations for this year … one thought at a time. Baby steps.
