New Year Resolutions/Realizations

I'm thinking, I'm thinking! Resolutions!

Let's face it folks, unless the grim reaper decides to make one of us his new friend, we'll all have another new year.

What's so important with making a new year resolution? I haven't truly, figured that one out yet. I'm still dealing with the resolutions made in 1984.

Every year people promise themselves something. We make promises to ourselves that are to difficult to keep. Realization says; you're just setting yourself up to fail.

From where did the New Years Resolution tradition come?

The celebration of the new year is the oldest of all holidays. It was first observed in ancient Babylon about 4000 years ago. In the years around 2000 BC, the Babylonian New Year began with the first New Moon (actually the first visible crescent) after the Vernal Equinox (first day of spring).--

Some New Years Resolutions are as follows:

Get a (better) job
Get into shape
Payoff debts
Quit a habit
Start school
Find a love
Take a trip
Get organized
Find a hobby
Buy a house or move
Save money
Reduce stress

In my not-so-humble opinion, people should make the resolution to plan their lives better than they plan their vacations.

Post a written goal for the year somewhere where you can see it everyday. By the door leading to the garage, on back of the bathroom door, on the back of the front door, on the refrigerator, on the hood of the toilet, in the middle of a frequently used mirror. Maybe this regurgitation of reminders will help you shut realizations boisterous mouth.

Me, (guffaw) fudge and I are best friends, have been for 24 years.
