How was it for you? Good? Bad? Middle of the road?
Did you reach any goals or milestones?
Accomplished any dreams you had your eye on?
I don't do New Year's Resolutions, simply because I think you can better yourself every day, not just make the 'promise' to do so just because you want good luck for another year.
We're always changing and growing. Each day is an opportunity to learn or do something new, to make a positive change in your life, or to do something positive for someone else.
The year was decent for me overall I think.
I finally made the commitment about losing weight, and it's working!
My mom and I got a personal trainer together, and I'm losing weight and inches and people are noticing!
That's one of the best feelings in the world. I might have my days where I slack off, or eat what I shouldn't, but I'm definitely doing better and I'm proud of myself for that.
Took my boy to Disney World for the first time and he had a ball!
I had fun too, and I look forward to doing it again. I think we'll go again in 2008.
I hit the big 3-0 in November! I'm looking at things in my life, present and past, and just reflecting. I'm defnitely a different person. I have my faults like anyone else, but I'm officially a grown up now, and my way of thinking reflects that.
And of course there were the not so great times, but I'm not even going to go there. You can't change the past, and bad memories serve no purpose, so I'll just leave them where they are.

Some women seem to hold "being married" as some great accomplishment in life. Or when they get engaged, it's the hugest news possible, there's a huge party, the ring is shown off to anyone who will look, there's so much excitement in planning a wedding. Afterward the wedding, being sure to put the name "Mrs." on mail, etc.Not that men don't value their marriages, but is "being married" more of a status symbol, accomplishment, or whatever else to women?
What do you think?

Dr. Phil proclaimed, "The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you've started and never finished."
So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't finished, and before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle Patron, bottle of Merlot, a bottle of White Zinfandel, a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream, a bottle of Kahlua, and some JD; then a package of Oreos, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos and a box of chocolates.You have no idea how good I feel!
Thank you for this Jen!
If you begin to put yourself down (I can't do it, I'm too ugly, I'm too late, I'm so stupid, I can't do anything right, nobody loves me, what's the use?) you are suffering from self-abuse and low self-esteem.
Remember the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, "No one can ride your back unless it's bent." Negative actions and words may sting and hurt for a moment but you can shake it off like water off a duck's back if you continually work on your worthiness, self-image, positive inner self-talk and love.
If you're standing tall, no one can ride your back!
