So it’s the first day of the new year. I’m reflecting. I know, I’m supposed to reflect at the end of the previous year, but like with everything else, I’m late. For kicks I scrolled back to my Dec ’05 blog and realized that what I had been suspecting all along was true – my blog sucks. I used to write very thoughtful posts. I used to take pride in writing something worth reading; now I just toss up 3-4 pictures, write a quick caption and hope that three days later I’ll have more time to actually write something decent. Three days later I post a few more pictures and write about whatever had been going on with our family that week (which usually isn’t all that exciting...or even decent, in some cases).
So I don't know what went wrong? I do know that time isn’t really on my side these days. I think I’m almost at the point that I can admit that I’m one of those people who never has time for anything and is always rushing around last minute. I don’t know how that happened because I’m not really “wired” that way. I’m more of a planner by nature. I’ve always been one of those people who arrived places early and then waited in the car so that they didn’t go in “too early”. Now I’m always late and running around wondering what deadline I missed. What happened to me? Darn Jermaine – it’s all his fault – somehow after 10 years together I must’ve merged onto his schedule! I’m kidding, I don’t know what it is.
Anyway, I’m veering off track, time to bring it back to my point – where was I – oh yeah, my sucky blog. So my new years resolution is going to be to try to make at least one decent blog entry a week. …okay, maybe a month. The pressure of trying to come up with something provocative once a week is far more than I can handle.
Here are some of my other resolutions (in no real order):
1) Family eat healthier
2) Put Jesus first (hmm, should I have listed that first?)
3) Spend more QT with the kids
4) Schedule one meeting-less day at work per week (huh! – I can dream!)
5) 1 decent blog per month
The funny thing is that I never make new years resolutions; I've never really believed in doing that. I've long thought it to be a waste of my time to sit and think up all sorts of things that I wanted to do better for the first two weeks of January and then not think about again. In my mind, New Years resolutions only make you feel like a failure. I mean, if I wanted to make some major change, especially for my own self-enhancement, I generally wouldn't hold off until the next January 1st, I'd just do it when I thought of it. This year I’m not only making resolutions, but I’m putting them on the internet, oh boy!
Okay, you've heard mine, now what are some of your resolutions?
