It was a year filled with joys, sorrows and celebrations. There was work time, travel time, home time and family time. There were some good times and a few not-so-good times.
There was life. And, it was all good.
As I write these words I reflect back on a post I made on a similar New Years Eve morning a couple of years ago. I feel the same today as I did then - Full Of Possibility. And blessed beyond measure.
This year; however, I am going to deviate a bit from my "no resolution" lifestyle and make what I choose to call a few "deals" with myself.
No, I will not call them resolutions.
I have never known of a resolution that was kept and; therefore, refuse to term these "deals" as such. Tomato/Tomato - Potato/Potato!
So here goes.
In the year 2012 I will attempt to...
1) Live a healthier lifestyle - a lifestyle that includes more exercise and fewer plates of fat-laden food.
2) Spend more time doing for others and less time doing for myself.
3) Remember that I don't have a soul - I am a soul. Nourish my soul through prayer, meditation, reading and writing.
4) Not neglect "toes" for weeks/months at a time (see 3)!
There you have it. In writing. My "deal" list for 2012.
Now, here's my "will do" list for 2012:
Live, Laugh and Love. A LOT.
I will cherish The Señor, my family and the life God has given me each and every day.
I wish the same for each of you.
Happy New Year and may God bless you and yours.
