9 Goals for 2009


I love the concept of New Year's Resolutions. It's a chance to start over; a chance to redeem yourself. If you had a really crappy year, it's a brand new beginning-- a fresh start! 2008 was, how should I put this?? It was a TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD YEAR! Now, to give 2008 a little credit, there was some good in it, especially in the last few months, but for the most part, it was a bad banana with a greasy black peel or an appalling dump heap overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment of deplorable rubbish imaginable, mangled up in tangled up knots....Okay Okay, I'll stop now.

So...here's to a New Year and another chance for us to get it right! 9 Resolutions for 2009

1.) Train and Run a marathon--White Rock 2009. Here I come!

2.) Cook at least once a week. I'll never learn if I don't practice. Like for example, now I know you have to COOK the pasta noodles when making Chicken spaghetti-who knew??

3.) Balance my check book (on my nose). Only kidding--be better with my money. Save 10% of what I make this upcoming year. Which means-less trips to Target :(

4.) Weekly card giving-Send out a card a week to a friend-via snail mail, not email. I have never been the best friend I could be. Hopefully this will keep me in contact with those I love and miss.

5.) Stop writing LOL after I hear something funny on the computer. That is SOO 10 years ago!

6.) Join a Women's Bible Study-which will keep me accountable in reading the Bible.

7.) Stop mailing drier lint to the kid who dumped me in 2nd grade.

8.) Let go of grudges and MOVE ON! Forgive others and forgive myself. Appreciate the lessons I have learned-the harder the trial-the bigger the lesson. Learn from my mistakes and the mistakes of others. Listen to the advice of the people who love me- but make decisions for myself. Realize what I am worth and what I deserve. Realize what those around me deserve from me- and be that for them. Have a glass is full type of attitude. Count my blessings! Enjoy life!

9.) Be a better me-plain a simple.

Crossroads

I've got nothing on my mind: nothing to remember,
Nothing to forget. and I've got nothing to regret,
But I'm all tied up on the inside,
No one knows quite what I've got;
And I know that on the outside
What I used to be, I'm not anymore.

You know I've heard about people like me,
But I never made the connection.
They walk one road to set them free
And find they've gone the wrong direction.
But there's no need for turning back
`cause all roads lead to where I stand.
And I believe I'll walk them all
No matter what I may have planned.

Can you remember who I was? can you still feel it?
Can you find my pain? can you heal it?
Then lay your hands upon me now
And cast this darkness from my soul.
You alone can light my way.
You alone can make me whole once again.

We've walked both sides of every street
Through all kinds of windy weather.
But that was never our defeat
As long as we could walk together.
So there's no need for turning back
`cause all roads lead to where we stand.
And I believe we'll walk them all
No matter what we may have planned.
