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.

Seems to me you can start your year on just about any day of the year; if today is a bad day you can make it start tomorrow etc... Perhaps the "nincompoop" did you a favour. Good luck with the letter writing. I look forward to receiving one sometime before Jan.3 2010.

I like the hand written letter idea. I remember hand writing letters to friends (okay, girl friends mostly). I think different things get said in letters. It is also interesting that we used to say in a letter, "The weather here is..." and "I did this or that today". With weather channels and Facebook I don't think we need to write about those things anymore as we know the weather everywhere all-the-time and everyone sends emails and facebook updates all the time.

I'm not sure what I'd write about in a handwritten letter to someone, but it has given me something to think about.

Thanks for your blog, Em. I only check it once per week or so, but I am glad that I checked when I do get around to it.
