Today is the end of 2009 and I can’t believe how fast it went by. A lot of things, good and bad, happened in 2009. And there is really no need to mention any of them since they have already happened.
Now I am looking forward to what 2010 will bring us. I am really not a “resolutions” type of person. When I was younger, I felt bad when I couldn’t live up to the resolution that I would make on New Year’s Eve — the whole “failure” thing. But I am one who tries to find things to make myself better than the previous year.
While I was surfing the new at work (don’t tell anyone), I found this article and I liked what it said. So I am passing it along for others to read (to read the whole article, click on the link below).
New Year’s Resolutions: Top Ten Resolutions for Your Possible New Year
Recommended New Year’s Resolutions
By Susan M. Heathfield, About.com Guide
New Year’s resolutions top many to-do lists each holiday season. The new year is a beginning so new goals and resolutions, new plans, new dreams and new directions fuel your thoughts.
Do something you love to do, and that you do best, every single day.
Do something just for you every single day.
Give yourself credit and a pat on the back when you deserve it.
Strive to learn something new every single day.
Make professional contacts and network.
Practice professional courage by stepping out of your comfort zone.
Listen more than you talk.
Develop a method to track your life goals, your daily engagements, and your to do list.
Read voraciously to continue to learn and grow.
Take up a new hobby or activity this year.
Take yourself a little less seriously.
So I am not sure if it is because I am older (and wiser) that all of these make sense to me now. For 2010, I will try to remember these goals, resolutions, plans or directions. But my main goals for 2010 are to be healthy, happy and surround myself with family and friends who will help me on whatever journey I take.
Happy New Year to all that read my blog! I have had so much fun blogging about what pops into my head!
