New Years Revolutions
If I spelled resolution wrong in the title, it's not because I'm a bad speller, which I am. Thank God for spell-check. This year will be a year of revolutions, but lets not lose sight of what this blog is about. I declare a revolution against excess fat, laziness, grouchiness, and broken resolutions. How's that for a play on words?
Ugh, I'm about fifteen pounds overweight. I'm going to be happy with losing ten. Five will be a major milestone, but ten will make me happy, happy. I don't necessarily think I'm fat, but dangit my clothes aren't fitting right and I don't want to buy bigger ones. I would also look better with less weight and feel better.
Laziness: Well, I am lazy. I've been procrastinating about finishing this book for a year. Granted I had a bad case of writers block, or cramps as I like to say. But by gum and April, I hope to have a completed manuscript.
Grouchiness? Yes and there are lots of reasons for that. The two aforementioned above are two reasons. The government is another, and my job, which is a blessing, is another. I don't want to work anymore. I'd like to retire and just write. But I lack discipline, which also makes me lazy, which makes me grouchy. So, you see, I've got a revolution to win this year.
How about you? Are there revolutions you must conquer this year? If so, I pray blessings for you all.
