Happy New Year

New Year's Eve -- a time of renewing? I was 26 years old the last time I made a New Year's resolution. I resolved not to save resolution making for New Year's Day, but instead to make my fresh starts whenever they were needed. Base your goals for 2007 not on what day of the year it is, not on what image you want to present to the world, not on what someone else thinks you should do; base your goals on who you are, and what you need to accomplish to remain true to yourself. Anything else is doomed to fail, no matter what day of the year it is. And remember, you don't have to pin all of your hopes on this one day. The sun comes up on brand new possibilities every single morning. Happy 2007!

You are right Quilldancer, I spent many years trying to give up smoking on New Years Day and failed every time.I eventually achieved it over 10 years ago on an April 1st (which is probably quite appropriate for me!)By the way this is Bazza, I couldn't be bothered to sign out and start all over again.

Bazza -- start the new year as you plan to continue -- lazy and relying on Tina! ;)

I gave up New Year's resolutions years ago- never could keep them.

Happy New Year's to you!

Cindy -- according to Pastor today in church, most New Years resolutions are broken within two weeks of their making. She said the ones most often kept are those that list the things one is going to do, as opposed to the things one plans to never do again.

Just to be on the safe side, I resolve to disappoint everyone in 2007.

Happy New Year, Quilly!

Remembering that we do nothing but through Jesus Christ works for me. I quit smoking by praying each time I wanted a cigarette and found it very easy to stop. Eating is another thing......I haven't prayed once about over eating!! Wonder why that is that I am not willing to give it up yet!?! I must be waiting for heart attack, stroke, ?, ?, what ever comes along with trying to pack an extra 200 pounds around a day!! God bless to all of you that are working toward improvement of any kind. I am praying that He will help me with being a nicer more productive person in 2007. All you that love me feel welcome to hold me to that!! much love and happy new year to you!! xooxoxo C

Caryl -- God's will. That and a mirror on the front of the fridge.

Bill -- I'd like to tell you that what I generally ask for is God's will to be done -- though I will admit that just lately I've placed a couple of orders. Still, I know that what I recieve will be what God deems best for me.
