“I think in terms of the day’s resolutions, not the year’s.” (Henry Moore) “I will…” instead of, “I’d like to...” Usually, if I want to do something, I do it. The procrastination list is for stuff that can wait until the last minute. How about you? Try making a daily “I WILL DO…list” and see if that works! (Oops..just remembered..time for 2nd set of exercise reps.. back in 15)…I’m back, and it works! For resolutions? One day at a time, Sweet Jesus goes the song. ;-) Jack
FROM LS IN MI: Yes! Each day I awake, God willing, I, with the highest intention, make a new day resolution and commitment to myself. At the end of the day I give thanks for all that my day held and the 23rd psalm comforts me for I believe, as I sleep and when I awake my life will be as It should. I give thanks to God. May good health and joy bless you and your loved ones in 2019.
===JACK: If we have "A Way of Life" ingrained in us, it becomes natural to follow that way without giving thought about "resolves." It's just the way I live!
FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: Your “Will Do” list is kind of like my “Daily Goal”. I have to accomplish my daily goal I set for myself each day. Now, yo be truthful, I haven’t been sticking to my goals lately because life sometimes gets in the way. But, when I’m home, there is a daily goal. Sometimes it very simple and sometimes it very difficult and takes a few days. Have a very Happy and Blessed New Year!! God bless you!===JACK: For the new year, place an I WILL DO in front of your daily goal, with some !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! after it.
FROM QUILTING CAROL: One of Bob's cousins shared this tonight. I don't know the author, but it has some wonderful thoughts.
ONE TREE CAN START A FOREST;
ONE SMILE CAN BEGIN A FRIENDSHIP;
ONE HAND CAN LIFT A SOUL;
ONE WORD CAN FRAME THE GOAL;
ONE CANDLE CAN WIPE OUT DARKNESS;
ONE LAUGH CAN CONQUER GLOOM;
ONE HOPE CAN RAISE YOUR SPIRITS;
ONE TOUCH CAN SHOW YOU CARE;
ONE LIFE CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE;
BE THAT ONE TODAY AND THIS COMING YEAR!!
Happy New Year
===JACK: What a great thought for taking with us into the new year!
FROM EILEEN: Good idea to make a commitment to get certain important tasks done, appreciate the idea, lefts see if I can stick to...===JACK: I'm often good at giving advice. I need to remind myself that the advice is for me, too.
