New Year's Resolutions

New Year's  Resolutions . . . I confess, I gave up on them a long time ago. They seem so contrived, like those jokes that start, "A piece of string walked into a bar." (Really? A piece of string?) The entire nation decides to lose weight, give up smoking, walk three miles a day, etc. etc. etc. So I don't make New Year's resolutions.

Now that January is well underway, however, I am willing to confess that there are a lot of things I would like to do better. So here are the resolutions I would make if I were prone to the habit of making New Year's resolutions:

1. I will try harder not to be so performance-driven.
2. I will . . . hey, wait a minute, if I keep making this list I will be breaking #1. Forget the whole thing.

Maybe next year.
