Write about anything you’d like, but make sure the post includes this sentence: “I thought we’d never come back from that one.”I know what you are thinking. Every end of the year, you are thinking of New Year’s resolution.
Resolutions vs. My take on this
Loss weight – I can’t, this is me.
Eat healthy – go vegan? No way
Quit drinking – I’ll go thirsty
Exercise – is lifting a finger to type Daily Prompt counts?
No clutter – okay, just one corner, the bedroom
Join the gym – this I quit. Spent too much monthly fee for naught
No more war – I’m moving to Switzerland
Turn a new leaf – time to rake the autumn leaves
No this, no that – tit for tat
Do’s and don’ts – do or do not according to Yoda
Talk less – who can out talk to you?
Listen more – I’m plug-in to my iPhone
Go back to church – this I love doing
Meditate more – much oblige
Less is more – no money to spend
Save more – no money to save
Blah, blah, blah – I’ll leave this for my family who can’t stop talking about “those were the days”Every year, I thought we’d never come back from that one. I don’t, but I get sucked into it. All those broken promises and I hear “I forgot” is the excuse. Excuses, Excuses, Excuses. I tell to myself, sorry? What happened to those resolutions? No more excuses, add that to the list. Yikes. How can one get away with this?This I will come back every day. Just for Today: It’s an article written by Dear Abby that I pasted on my wall.
“Just for today, I will adjust myself to what is.” “Just for today, I will face reality.” “Just for today, I will change those things I can change.” “Just for today, I will accept things I cannot change.”
It’s actually a Prayer of Serenity which I mumble to myself every day.“Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference. Amen.” HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL
