    Okay folks, lets hear what those new year resolutions are for 2009. I am going to try to be more patient, I am also going to try and get to that 119lb weight goal-although I am not going to guarantee that i'll make it there, I am also going to try to not let things aggravate me so much-although I suppose that comes under the being more patient category.

    I avoid trying to make "new year's resolutions." Experience has told me they usually end up in disappointment. If I want that, I'll just balance my checkbook...... instead I pray for a happy, healthy year & do what I can to make that happen.

    I also really despise New year resolutions, but I guess it helps if you write them down. I had been thinking of thinks.. that I should do or accomplish.. so I'll list mine for the 'Day After New Years Resolution 2009'. Respectivly.

    -Purchase and grow all of the plants I had circled in all of those plant catalogs..
    -Clean the rest of my room
    -Be 'greener'
    -Practice archery & shooting more
    -Take my drivers training tests and possibly maybe try to pass (I dread driving.. I have nighmares)
    -Get a job at Runnings where my so called 'friends' work so I can pester and annoy them into quitting.
    -Keep up good grades
    -Grow my hair.

    I guess I should have started this list a while ago....but I should work out more and become more fit, switch over to registered stock only in the boers, sell some goatrs (like that is going to happen.),keep up the good grades, get into the vet school/camp this summer.....

    I do not do them because I can not keep them at all. i agree I think if I wrote them down I would have a better chance of keeping them.

    I'll tell you the same thing I've told my friends, stop trying so hard when it comes to driving, trust me, it works. Thats one thing I never got worked up over and yes I did fail my test once but hey I have my license, lol :greengrin:

    My resolutions.....hmmmmm.......I've never really made any, I guess I'll just stick with being able to see the floor in my room, getting through my junior year, getting through this year, getting a job and running away next summer :shades:

    I always make a resolution to read through the Bible in that coming year .........I always get stuck after like Deuteronomy so I decided years ago I wouldnt even make that a resolution anymore, it only disapoints me. But I am working towards having read through the whole thing.... got a ways to go but I am further then I have been before I think. :thumb:


    Lets see some goals of mine that wont happen this year :(

    Make loads of money
    get married
    explore the US

    So I guess I will stick with just enjoying what life throws my way and what God has for me each day

    Ditto Sara.

    You really put shouldn't yourself down Stacey, just because your resolutions didn't fulfill themselves doesn't mean you still can't keep trying on them :) Patience is key. :)

    I guess the one thing I never understood about resolutions is why they had to be made at the beginning of the year, why not make resolutions year round? :)

    I've wondered the same things and then I came up w/ an answer....people want to avoid trying to work towards goals.

    because a new year is a turning of a new leaf a chance to start over and to get a fresh start. Isnt something new exciting? so in that excitement people like to make changes in their life.

    It isnt that we cant do it or they dont do it throughout the year...it just is highlighted at the new year
