All Your New Year's Resolutions Rolled Into One Number

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Flying TimeI always thought each year people making new year's resolutions was kind of silly. Why didn't they start making them on April 20th or October 7th? This time thing of endings and beginnings and our age on our birthdays is all man made you know. It is purely arbitrary with the calendars we design. If you are into resolutions stick with them for 21 days then they have the best chance of sticking. But here is

All Your New Year's Resolutions Rolled Into One Number.

No doubt time flies. Look at how fast that last DECADE whizzed by? Remember Y2K fears? Seems like yesterday. But we can only REALLY live and control our lives in the moment. 525,600 minutes in a year. Live there. Make the most of EACH MOMENT!!

Gary,

I have given up on making New Years resolutions, no sense in making something that I can't stick with.  LOL

Hi Gary, Out of all those minutes, we should be able to make adjustments with new resolve throughout the year. I only made one new year's resolution that I ever kept and that was to make no more New Year's Resolutions! :-) Best of everything to you in this coming year Gary! Happy New Year!

GARY: Your post is worthy of a re-blog I so feel that each moment of each day is a special time on our lives to be the best person we can be and appreciate the blessings in our lives. I stopped making resolutions years ago and now live each day as if it may be my last. Your word of LOVE is powerful as is the smile we display and share with others and adding a SMILE TO THEIR FACE. HAVE A BEST YEAR EVER LIVING EACH MOMENT IN THE PRESENT.

Hi Gary, I never could understand why everyone makes those silly resolutions. I like to work hard every day and see how well it turns out. I'm not much of a planner. No big goals...I just lump along! LOL

Great point Gary, I have often wondered that myself... I guess it's just a major stepping stone measured by the months that go by so fast! It seems I make goals every week.  You're right on with the 21 days... Breaking the good habits, however, happen much more quickly!  Happy New Year!

Gary, I had the same thoughts abouts Y2K and am calling this New Year Y2K.1.  Beautiful song, I was expecting something totally different.  I've made many random resolutions on various dates over the years and they're the ones that seem to have held.  Thanks and Happy New Year!

Gary, am just getting back to check out what's been happening on AR and headed here to visit you first...  I'm glad I did.  We were talking about the Y@K scare last night too.  Time does keep marching on. 

Here's to a 2010 filled with every wish fulfilled for you!

I do tend to look at this first day of the year as an opportunity to start again -- or try again -- in some areas of my life. Kind of offers a refreshed feeling -- some sort of renewal. And realizing that another year has passed, it is also a reminder to live in the moment, as you say. Thanks for another great post!

I am with you, Gary. When you make resolutions just because everyone else is, you will probably nor be successful. I think when you realize you want to make a change, and need to make a change, is the best time to commit to your plan and see it through.

I don't make resolutions, but I have things I want to do, and being the stubborn one, I will get them done.  I try to look at what wil be and not what has been.

Gary--I like your perspective on resolutions. I prefer to do my best each day than make lofty promises to myself that I can't keep. Best wishes. Mary

Gary - New Years resolutions are seductive - full of promise, like a new seed catalog. Then the deer eat your garden.
