Resolutions are a good thing---- really. The problem is that we make them too big or too 'something' and then mixed with a fair bit of un-accountability they get lost in the seasons.
I looked at mine yesterday, 30 days after four of us sat around the kitchen while drinking coffee and prepping a meal together and wrote an email to all participants. Using my list and writing my successes and stalls I called for all of us to continue to hold each other accountable while renewing my personal vow for same.
Of those things on the list I can report that the most successful was my continued weight loss, down 22 more pounds since the first of the year. I can look forward to the problem of no spring clothes fitting and having to buy new ones, yay! Several of the things on my list were from the touchy feely category, like how to turn an attitude around. I had written (and discussed with the group) my desire to remember the adage "you can be right or be love". Heavy stuff indeed. In revisiting my 30 days I found that I'm not doing really well with it. Much of the time when I choose to "be love".......... I find that I simply stuff my initial irritation, I feel isolated/lonely/sad. This obviously is not the way to turn around the need to be right, the need to know that your opinions have value and that they matter.
So, what is the secret? How can you assert yourself while still maintaining an attitude of love and mellow it all together? I'm not sure but of course opinions are always welcome!
On the knitting front I've managed two whole rows on Lloie------- and Citroen is languishing. Some productivity today will bring me to knit group tonight where I hope to knit a bit on both. At least coffee and chattering will happen which makes me smile!
