I'm with Serenity although in a slightly different way....I'm going to stop trying to change me to suit others...I'm me and that's all there is to it...ROFL

Ooops, I think that translates into I'm going to be a little bit kinder to myself..*g*

I made a resolution every year, and I never kept it. I'm NOT going to make one this year and see what happens!

I don't make new years resolutions.......I'm good all year........



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I hate your socks. I'd like to burn them!

I make resolutions every year that i keep for a little while, but for a little while, i am free of certain vices. this year? i want to live healthier, in all aspects of life- not just what i eat, but what i do on weekends, managing stress, etc. and i resolve to work harder at school so i can get into a good grad school.

A mixture of the not allow myself to be walked on, pushed around, dominated etc. emotionally. Firming my emotional resolve as it were!  LOL
To be true to myself and STAND!  
P.S.  I think I like quotes TOO much.  LOL
Happy New Year Everyone

I was going to decide not to make any resolutions this year but that is a resolution! Go figure! So my new year's resolution is "I will not make any new years resolutions except this one".  

....peace as a primary objective is dangerous because it implies that we would sacrifice anything for the sake of it....

I usually forget what I promised myself by day 2, but here goes...

(1)I will NOT be: a doormat, laundrymat queen, carpool hauler, bottle washer, yard dog pooper scooper person, unless I get some HELP from the kiddies, and a grateful hug from the hubby once in a while!

Whew...I feel better just seeing it in writing!

Poet deVine wow when you make a resolution you really make it. I hope you do get to do what you want. I have no resolution, just making it everyday is enough for me. Maybe next year I'll go out on a limb.

I resolve to make my life a better place for me to live in.
I resolve to stand on my own two feet and not let others dominate my life!
I resolve to feel wonderful about myself, NO MATTER WHAT!

Don't care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don't give up and use the chance
To return to innocence.

Well, I made my New Years resolution and already broke it!  I told myself that I would be on time for work more often.  (It's that darn snooze button!  Why was it invented??!!)  Today I slinked into UVa at 8:13...3 minutes late!  OOPS!  Ok, so my resolution will start tomorrow
