Did you make any resolutions? Have you broken any of them so soon?
The New Years habit of making resolutions is from long ago, yet new.
Each year many people come up with goals (resolutions) for the coming year, knowing good and well they wont mean a thing in a day or so.
But it is time to reflect on 2011 and what has transpired locally, statewide, nationally and around the globe.
If you haven’t ventured to look into 2012, pause long enough to give thanks for what has been and more thanks for what ma come during the next 12 months.
A list of resolutions could begin with the idea of spending more time with family and friends. Often we think we spend too much time with family, but at the end of the year we realize time quickly passed and some family members and friends did, also.
Helping others doesn’t have to be stressed here in Pulaski when you look around and see recover efforts from the April tornadoes and the hundeds and hundreds of hors given by volunteers.
Of course there are others who need help and those strong, healthy and willing volunteers are needed year round.
Getting organized would be helpful. Spouses can be heard saying, “Amen” to that.
Other resolutions that would benefit people physically include stop drinking, stop smoking and fighting the battle of the bulge.
How about getting out of debt? Would that make you happy? Folks would need to make stronger and more disciplined decisions when shopping.
How about enjoying life more? Be more jovial, friendly and spread joy and cheer. Stop being so grumpy and critical.
Becoming more physical would make people feel better and also help fight the battle of the bulge.
Try them you might like them!
Happy New Year
