Resolution Schmolution

Fizz asked me at the bar on New Year's Eve if I had made any resolutions. I initially said I hadn't and mumbled something about not liking to make goals because then I have to work to fulfill them. I realized there was something really wrong with that statement. So I continued to ramble almost non-stop for what seemed like 5 minutes about things I want to work and improve upon this year.

Mainly, I want to be genuinely happy for more than like a day at a time. I'm increasingly getting better at that. I also need to date more, and (gasp!) set a goal that I want to average a date a month. I really need to stop beating myself up about things and learn to balance stress. I'm really mindful that my week off of work and school was really stress-free and I'm trying to carry that feeling with me. I even made a list in my journal about things I can do to de-stress. Of course there is the usual go to the gym more, cut down on sugar, take 10-minute walks at lunch...there is so much I could probably come up with that I want to improve upon--but I've decided to not to stress myself about it and just learn to accept things--me--as they--I--are. All in all, 2005 was not bad--and I have a feeling 2006 will be even better.
