A “New” New Year’s Resolution

The other day after the boys were safely tucked in bed and there was actually quite, I decided to take a little “me” time. It does not happen often but I needed it with all the stresses of life.

I cuddled on the couch with our Jack Russell and read a magazine. Yes, a real magazine and not a parenting one either. It was Cooking with Paula Dean. I cannot tell you how much I admire this woman. She is the most upbeat positive person I have ever seen. She has been through tough emotional and financial times but she just loves life and it exudes from her. As I read the magazine, I could not help but smile and forget the cares of the world as she talks of sweet tea, her new grandbaby, and comfy living.

However, the real thing that hit me is what I found on the last page. Paula talked about making her 2007 New Year’s Resolution. She said she was tired of failing at giving up something and feeling bad for it. This year she was going to resolve to do something instead of not do something. She was going to resolve to do little things to make others happy, even small simple things. That way she and another person would feel good every time she was successful and it would make it much easier to keep.

Paula, I am joining in on your resolution. My resolution for 2007 is to enjoy each day and do little things to make others happy.
