They (you know who THEY are) say a resolution is a promise to change. BUT a revolution is the change. . So we have decided that we need some revolutionary resolutions for 2012..... AND some of the changes we have already started..... Like going to the Y and working out almost every day. Yes there are days we don't. Like this morning since we are on a road trip. AND then there is eating better and LESS (should i have made that in a smaller font???). Again this is something we have already begun. AND before we started this trip we had begun 'shrinking'.
Of course there are the other standard resolutions to be kinder, friendlier, Love deeply and Laugh often. "What you do for the least of mine you do for Me". And again these are things we ( Beatrice and I ) try to do all the time.
BUT here are a few others to think about......
Embrace the absurd..... as we become grownups (that really happens?????) we sometimes lose this ability.... I find that inspiration is 25% genius, 75% perspiration, and 10% absurdity.
Smile at adversity....... Being a half full guy i tend to look for the positive in most situations. Besides, most folks are nervous around a 'smiler', some may even be suspicious of what you are on... maybe they will even want a little. More about the 'Happiness Hammer' in a different post.
Make time to stop and talk to that 'different' person you normally avoid. You may find a truly interesting spirit hiding behind that shroud. Maybe even another half full one!!!!!
And lastly, If you are having trouble remembering what a rose smells like, stop right then and rediscover. The longer you put it off the fainter that wonderful aroma will be. Pretty soon all you smell is last weeks garbage.
SOOOO from Beatrice and I, we send you HAPPY NEW YEARS greetings, and hope the next year fulfills your hopes, dreams, and needs.
