Tonight, I need to keep in mind that I am no longer wishing for a new year that is better than the old year. I decided on my birthday, this past August, that I more interested in hoping for better "age years". My year runs from August 17 2008 - August 17 2009.
Why, you may be wondering, would I not wish to start fresh with January 1...well I'll tell you why...because some nincompoop at our New Year's Eve celebration always claims that the new year is going to be "his" year. At times when I was in desperate need of some good luck, and good wishes, he stole the good fairy dust right out of my hands! And sure enough, something absolutely awful has happened to me every year.
The thing is, I'm not sure if I made a "new year" resolution on my birthday. If I did, I obviously didn't keep it. oops. So this morning I was thinking that I would resolve to do something "feel good for me, and feel good for someone else"...all in one monthly swoop.
I will hand write a letter, a minimum of once a month.
Now I just need to decide if my resolution is good until August 2009, or January 2010.
