New Years Resolutions For The Geekly Reader

Greetings and Happy New Year to all.  I hope everyone had a safe evening celebrating the end of 2011 and the welcoming of 2012.  I hope 2012 is a great year for each and every one of you.  Like most, I make "New Year's Resolutions" each year on New Year's Eve.  I thought I would use my first entry of 2012 to share some of my New Year's Resolutions.

  1. "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff":  I actually started doing this about mid-way through 2011.  While it can be difficult sometimes, I have been getting better.  I want to enjoy each day that I am alive with my family and friends.  If the people most important to me are happy and in good health, then I am happy too.
  2. "Write More Entries, More Often":  I always can come up with excuses for not writing a post.  I work full time and put in many extra hours at work (announcing, coaching, committees, etc.) and will start a part-time job teaching at Wayne County Community College later this month.  Throw in all my family responsibilities and one can see it would be difficult to find time to write.  Still, I need to keep up with my writing for The Geekly Reader.  My goal for 2012 is at least three entries per week.  I really hope to keep this resolution.
  3. "Start Writing a Book":  I have been throwing this idea around for the past few years.  I have a few notebooks with ideas, but I have really yet to try to put anything together.  I really hope teaching this writing course at WCCC will help push me into starting my first book/novel.

So there you go, three resolutions and nothing about quitting smoking or losing ten pounds (although it would not hurt to lose a few).  I really do not have a problem with resolutions.  I do not think there is anything wrong with trying to make life better anytime of year, not to mention the very start of the year.  I will not beat myself up if I can not keep any of these resolutions.  I will just try to do better in the future.  How about you, what are your resolutions for 2012?
