Pretty Good Year

I didn’t have any resolutions for 2009. At least, not as far I as can remember. Mind, I don’t remember much from New Year’s Eve 2008. [Oh, apparently I resolved not to drink hard liquor... I didn't manage that one.]

I don’t know if I agree with the idea of resolutions. One one hand, they are ideas for personal and professional growth and improvement. But they often seem to end up as a list of the things you hate about yourself that you wish to change. Lose 20 lbs. Quit smoking. Find a boyfriend. Eat healthy.

I already have a list of things to do before I die. I consistently makes lists of things I want to do, to buy, to be. I don’t want to resolve to do or be anything in the next year, because what I want seems to change everyday.

Over the next few posts I want to write about my accomplishments of 2009. And then things I hope to accomplish in 2010. Maybe it’s just a question of semantics. But it sounds much better to me than resolutions…
