New Years Eve......Resolutions or things you should do anyways?

Well I didn't blog at all last week. Did you all miss me and my ramblings? 

It is New Years Eve.  I usually do a list of resolutions and give reasons for them but as I glanced back at last  years list I realized something.

I should be doing those things ALL THE TIME.

T has never been one for making resolutions and she feels the same way.  Why say your going to do something just because you are starting a new year? 

If you made a list of resolutions for 2011, go back and look at them.  Ask yourself if those are things you should be doing anyways? 

Do I want to lose weight and get fit? Yes, so why wait till the new year?

Do I want to eat healthy and be a greener and overall healthier person? Yes, so why have I waited?

Do I want to be a better daddy and learn how to be a better husband and man?  Yes, so why do I wait till a supposed life changing holiday to start doing it?

You know why?  So when I fail or don't live up to my own expectations I can always fall back on "Next Year"

I like New Years Eve though. Watching a partially alive Dick Clark talk to Ryan Seacrest who is getting to be know more for dating Juilanna Hough.  Watching Carson Daly (WHO? Has Been?) Watching people who will wake up in the morning feeling sick act like I did many years ago.

I plan on making changes.  I plan on making changes that are going to better my family and not just me.  Resolutions?  Maybe.  But different than the things I have talked about changing in the past.

I wish everyone a Happy New Years and hope my family, friends and fellow bloggers that I have gotten to know over the past year are safe and have great success in the next year. 

Sorry you guys had to be without me over the last week. I know you could hardly keep your life together with me not blogging for a week.  Don't worry Monday, I will be back. And you have this to look forward to......

I am going to list the blog that were my biggest influences in 2010.  Those who helped me in my blogging life and my personal life.  

And as for this post, this blog and you and the year 2010

This is a really good point. It's always amazing to see the influx of people at the gym right after the first of the year and you're right- they should be doing it all year 'round. Easier said than done, I guess!

Hey Man,

I can't believe you left us for so long, a week without the Blog Father is too long. I called your house just to hear your voice on the answering machine. I love your accent. Can't imagine why you'd leave Ireland just to live in Georgia. You probably just want a quiet life after retiring from Lord of the Dance.

Thanks for the advice, you're right as usual. Does your wife know what a wise 'ol gem you are? She gets to live your blog everyday!!!

I promise to start exercising in the New Year, just as soon as it rolls around in 2012. Someday I'm going to fit in to those European Speedos just like you!

Be blessed,
Mark L.

I am with you on that, why make resolutions once a year when you can try to focus on these things all year long. Happy New Year to you and your family.

Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! Happy 2011!

Well, this year, my resolution is to work on my website. I am a part of a small group of writers, and we’re thinking to launch our College Assignment Help officially, but first, we want to work on our website. So my first new year resolution will be to make our website grow. Second visit some country in the world.
