Do you have a new years resolution? Oh yeah ,,, Christmas is coming but right behind that is New Years and that requires efforts to be made for personal issues and interests. I’ve had several resolutions over the years but only kept one ~ I quit smoking back in 81 on New Years eve, all the other resolutions that I had – I failed to keep.

So what’s your New Years Resolution going to be if any at all?

This year I want to workout and get more exercise.

It is what it is, whatever is gonna happen. But we are the only ones who have control over our own future.

Well ....My answer is nope!
Then my year is not full of disillusions & disappointment! Done that to many times in the past. I just live one day at a time....
It's like when you plan for a trip and it doesn't turn out like you expected...but when you just wake up and go.... it turns out to be the best trip one could have ever taken.....
Wishing all an early......
"2009".....Hope your new year resolutions work for you!!
