New Year’s resolutions Friday Five

Well it had to be didn’t it, love them or hate them I bet you’ve been
asked about New Year resolutions. So with no more fuss here is this
weeks Friday Five;

1. Do you make New Year resolutions?

I really don’t, although I like to begin the New Year with an intention or two. In this case those are to continue with my "Let’s Not Call It a Diet" efforts to change my life and also to be open to what is coming next in my life professionally rather than trying to force it. I’m not sure which of those is harder!

2. Is this something you take seriously, or is it a bit of fun?

I take those intentions very seriously.

3. Share one goal for 2008.

To reach my goal weight and continue to lower my blood pressure.

4. Money is no barrier, share one wild/ impossible dream for 2008

I would love to take a trip somewhere wonderful with my husband for a whole week. We haven’t done that for years, other than travel with the children, due to the care needed for the dogs.

5. Someone wants to publish a story of your year in 2008, what will the title of that book be?

"Set Free," of course. I hope this is the year I’ll get a little further from the birdcage of my own making.

  1. Oh, a week long vacation with just husband…sounds divine…
    I like your intentions, a nice balance of self-effort and letting go of control…

  2. Lovely list – as long as you fit in a stopover in these parts in the course of your money no object trip with Pure Luck…And we all drink with enthusiasm to your continuing emergence from the birdcage.

  3. we do tend to box and cage ourselves in so many ways don’t we? but good to have friends who help us bend the bars and see further out into the wide open world… may you be surrounded by some great benders!

  4. “Let’s not call it a diet” and “set free” — indeed…
    thanks for the wisdom that comes from your fingers…

  5. Songbird, you’ve really inspired me with your weight loss and exercise, so I really believe that you’ll reach your goal weight this year. I’ve managed four days on WW.
