Each year, I make New Years' resolutions that I think are practical and something I really want to do or improve on.
For several years, it was to send out birthday and anniversary cards. I bought an organizer and cards, filled the date lines with everyone's birthdays and anniversaries, and addressed the envelopes. All I had to do was sign, seal, and stamp.
After about February or March, I'd forget a card. Then, a whole week would go by and I wouldn't have sent out any cards. After a couple of weeks, I'd just give up and vow to do better...NEXT year.
This year, I've decided that I'm not going to set myself up for failure. I'm not making any resolutions for the New Year. There are plenty of changes coming in my life that I have little control over.
This year, I'm just going to go with the flow and enjoy my life. Can't be disappointed with that!
