According to my site stats, “What 2011 Holds For Me” was one of my most popular posts. I don’t exactly understand why because it simply stated my fresh hopes for that period and they are no different from the list of most people’s. So I’ll make a go of it again to see if I get lucky once more with this one.
To start things in jest, I’ll share with you my tentative New Year’s Resolutions I posted on my FB wall a couple of months ago. Most of my friends found it amusing and some even took it for real (Sheesh, where’s their sense of humor?.. ).
Here they are:
- lose weight and be as “body gorgeous” as Jennifer Aniston.
- remind myself over&over, “I ain’t a girl anymore.., I ain’t a girl anymore..” Well yeah, I sort of keep on forgetting that I’m not a teen-ager anymore. I still get crushes and blush like crazy. And I guess I better start dressing up like Susan Boyle or my great Aunt Ida. (Psst.. don’t tell, but yes I still dress young)
- stop writing cheesy love poems (erm..okay, so I do write them.. sometimes..).
- never EVER take a look at good-looking men again. They’re just “Trouble.” Take note of the capital T (I can definitely blog about this one for hours.. tirelessly)
- start buying lottery tickets so if I won, I could date Chris Hemsworth, or Josh Duhamel (Damn, why are all the best-looking guys already married?).
- finally realize all of the above are IMPOSSIBLE to carry out so I’ll just DELETE this whole list and go buy myself some choco cookies and ice cream.
So you think that’s funny huh! No?
Anyway let’s get serious now. On to my real resolutions that I’m sure will bore you to tears. And they aren’t even different to my last year’s at all!
But I’m making a list still, hoping that this time I’ll be able to accomplish at least two-thirds of it. Here they are:
1. Eat less. I should! And I must!
2. Exercise at least 30 minutes a day. I should! And I must!
3. Be cold-hearted when it comes to the affairs of the, of course, heart. Oh men, what have you done to me?
4. Be appreciative of the people and things I still have. My health, my son, my job, my family, my shelter, my ability to enjoy life, my love for reading, writing, and English. I guess I’m really one lucky gal.
5. Write about anything at least once a week. Anything. Ideas often slip out of my mind too quickly so I’ll try to carry a small notebook along with me wherever I go.
6. Read something at least once a day. Something worthwhile I hope.
See, my list is that simple. Before wrapping this up, I took a look at my last year’s entry with the same title. Yep, my resolutions are pretty much the same although my prose then was much better. Hmm, please don’t ask me why.
As time progresses, the more I realize how less of it is being allotted to me. I ain’t getting any younger. True. Which means I am running out of time. Fast. Therefore, I must double my efforts to make the most of my remaining years. So Heaven help me..
Happy New Year to all!
One thought on “What 2012 Holds For Me”
“I should” and “I must” are wiggle words. When you start saying “I will” it’s a lot harder to wiggle out of. (So: tip to the wise: NEVER say, “I will” unless you really, really, REALLY will! :))
