Father Time is Calling

Well my friends, Christmas has come and gone as has another year. Just a few more days until the new year is upon us. It seems every year about this time, I come up with New Year's resolutions that never seem to last through the end of January. I know quite a few people with the same problem.
This year, instead of setting yourself up for disappointment by trying to lose 20 pounds by March or getting straight A's in school, make a resolution you know you can reach. During my holiday break, I've done a lot of talking with my mom and she pointed out to me that I have a tendency to give up when something doesn't go right from the start. After a lot of reflecting, I've realized this has kept me from experiencing a lot of really great things.
So here is my New Year's resolution: To live life to it's fullest! To get out of my safe little bubble of a world and open myself to failure, so that I can try again. (Well, except the school kind.) To experience everything life has to offer and try new things. To be adventurous, artistic, and more in touch with myself.
Father Time may be working his magic, but I'm going to use the most of the time he's giving us. To start living! How will you use yours?

  1. Excellent resolution to make! I set three GOALS, not resolutions, so I know I will reach them.

    Happy New Year to you :) I love the picture in this post.
