Just Two Chicks!

Ahhh Welcome to 2011!

To be or not to be, THAT is the question, isn’t it? (Full credit given to Shakespeare for this first sentence!)
To be happy, to be fulfilled, to be healthy, to be true, to be you... life is full of what we desire to be, what we CAN be, what we want others to be. 
The first month of the new year comes with many resolutions meant to make us into what we desire to be. Even if you are one who strongly declares your refusal of resolutions, in your head you are quietly working on a better you, be it for money, health, happiness, looks, whatever... it’s there! 
Tips for successful resolutions are as follows:
  1. Do not read up on HOW to make resolutions and how follow them. 
That would be a great procrastination activity though! 
I’ve discovered I am on a constant quest to better myself. Throughout this quest, I’ve read many self-improvement books, many “poetic about life” books, many “how-to” books, etc, etc. (Even as I write this, the woman seated at the table next to me has pulled out a book called “Lead Successfully.” See, we all strive for something!)
Personally, I love the task of making my resolutions. It makes me feel productive and in control of my life. It gives me goals... it holds me totally accountable when I let my goals fall to the wayside with excuse after excuse. So, my goals these next few months are simple, and here is the main one.
I will not lose “me” in my life...
That’s it... of course my other goals are geared toward this main one. I also want more money, more time, and more energy, BUT I’m trying to keep it simple and perhaps if I’m able to meet my goals, the rest will follow. I would LOVE the domino effect that leads toward GOOD! 
What are some of your goals? Are you a supporter of resolutions?

No resolutions for me. I've learned to be a "Just Do it" person. So, I either pass or fail.

I think you've got some good goals stated. Let us know how you're doing with'em. :)
