The Right Choices...

As we reach the end of another year and get ready to start a new one, our thoughts will be turning as always to making our  new years resolutions!  More often than, not I have a list as long as my arm, only to break most of them a few days into January. This year I have decided I will try to make better decisions and choices, rather than resolve to do a whole heap of things that require huge effort and dedication !!  So do you like making resolutions or do you bother thinking about it at all?

Hope you all have a good day!


  1. I don't bother as can never stick with them! Hope you had a great Xmas xx

  2. I do make promises before every new year, but I only promise what I´ll DO and not what I shouldn´t do. Makes the promises a lot easier to keep! :-)

  3. I make a new year's resolution every year and really try to fullfill it, sometimes it has really made a difference in my life - but now for two years in a row I have made a same promise and not succeeded.. to take better care of myself. So now instead of continueing to be dissapointed to myself I have thought of making the promise in stages... Take smaller steps towards my goal.

  4. My initial instinct was to make huge list of things to accomplish this year, but I like your idea better Anne!

  5. LOVE it!!

  6. What a great sentiment. I've got a couple of resolutions, I try to make little changes each year rather than making a big change which only lasts a month.


  7. Thank you Anne.
    I can't believe how rested I feel already 24 hours away from the boys...although I obviously wouldn't want to be away too long!!

    I don't make solid resolutions but I am definitely going to do something similar to yourself and make better choices. (All family advice welcome!)

    I also want to slow down and savour life and moments more.

    Much love

  8. Great post.
    Happy New year!

  9. "to make better decisions and choices", I like that, I like it a lot :-)

  16. Happy New Year Anne. Love your post. I try not to make resolutions because I do break them shortly after I make them. This year I am going to try to manage my many hats better and enjoy every minute I can with my kids. They are growing up so fast.

  17. I make several small ones that I usually break but keep revisiting and feeling guilty for not keeping them the entire year. It's total punishment! :-)

  18. I like the quote in your post. I try to be gentler with myself than in the past when it comes to resolutions. I keep them small so they are not overwhelming. For example, last year I promised myself that I would try to paint for an hour a day. It worked. I painted much more than that. Happy New Year!

  19. I've listened to this a dozen or more times and still find it delightful and sooooo original in concept. We realize that we don't need to listen to outside authorities; we are not
    guided by our internal authority. It the radio was the only one that used to deliver the
    days news and weather updates.
