I think going a little more general with the resolutions gives me the freedom to be less confined by what I think things should be like in terms of my definition today... and allows for me to redirect my focus whenever it is needed. After all, improvement of any kind is better than none... or MUCH better than back-sliding.
Let me take a minute to say that I've now completed the Blog-365 challenge... and I actually made it! If only it were this easy to do some sort of an exercise-365 challenge! Don't get me wrong - some days it wasn't easy to blog... and I'm sure it was evident when those days came along because the content certainly lacked from time to time.
For 2009, we're going to do things a little differently... I'm going to blog as often as I have something good to say, but not give myself so much pressure as to write when I really don't have anything of importance to say. No more posts saying that I'm tired... or whatever... only posts that have something valid to say. That doesn't mean that everyone will agree with what I have to say, but that's okay too.
Happy New Year everyone - be sure to stay safe tonight, and enjoy the clean-slate that the New Year brings... try to accomplish your goals in real ways and little by little... you'll get there too!
