For the first time in my life, I haven’t made any New Year Resolutions, and quite frankly it’s liberating. There’s no list shouting at me to achieve more in whatever arena I’ve chosen to focus on. I found one I wrote in 1991, and boy did it make me laugh!
But is allowing myself free-reign on my life a wise decision? I believe so. I don’t need reminding to read more novels; I devour them as much as I can. I know I need to keep writing – just try and stop me – and I know there’s always room for improvement. Always.
It would be lovely to lose a few pounds, but who am I kidding, I’ve never dieted in my life, and I don’t intend to start at this stage of my life.
So, the new rules for this year are just to believe in myself more without the constraints of forcing myself to conform to a list of resolutions. Perhaps you should try it one year.
Happy New Year One & All & Happy Word Flow.

Dropping in to wish you a Happy New Year. I suddenly realized my list of resolutions for this year is non-existent also. As you said, a writer knows to read and write; losing weight isn't a goal; and restricting one's intake of chocolate is cruel and unusual punishment. Enjoy life!
Please forgive my tardiness, Gail. I have failed to visit my site for a while so missed your comment. I see we agree on all things here!
Happy New Year to you too!
