spt - new you resolution
by the time tuesday rolls around, we will be one week into this new year. for some, that means we're back to work, for others, that means the kids are back in school, for all of us, that means the normalcy of routine is fighting it's way back into existence.
i've been scouring blogs the past few days, reading about resolutions and pledges and goals and words and themes for 2008. it seems we all have something to strive for, some talent to explore, some item to check off on our list. (and i do mean *all* of us, even if you are a self-professed "no-resolution" person.) maybe you've just needed this week to settle down and get comfortable with the idea of marking up your brand-spanking new clean slate with lists and dreams and diet plans.
before you know it, february will have come and gone, and we might have already misplaced our lists (or, in some cases, tossed them to the curb in utter frustration!) then will come spring and end-of-school parties, and summer vacations, and marathons and pumpkin spice candles and all of sudden!! all of a sudden, we will be reviewing the year, delivering a post-mortem on the very resolutions we are now embracing.
stop for a minute and take a self-portrait, a snapshot of you in the here and now. what ARE your dreams and goals for 2008? what is your word? what are you thinking about right now as we plunge head-first into the new year? (just a head's up - we WILL be revisiting these photos throughout the year...)
so, tell us about it: what is your new *you* resolution?
