New Year's Resolutions

By Jan. 11, my "New Year's Resolution" a.k.a. lifestyle change was already slipping...

Then I ran across this quote that Amanda used on a recent post at www.kevinandamanda.com.

"I work with a girl who absolutely loves Mondays. LOVES them. She says they give her a fresh start. Mondays that start a new month are even better.

"We were both at work yesterday and were thinking about coming into work next week. Not only will we be coming in on a Monday, but it will be Monday, January 4, 2010. We will be starting a new WEEK, MONTH, YEAR and DECADE. I think this is the perfect opportunity to start fresh; to make one attainable resolution (read: ONE and ATTAINABLE) and to focus on how that one resolution can feed into the other parts of your life." - Sarah at The Strength of Faith


I think that's an awesome way to look at life - a "half-full" option (more on this soon, I promise)...

Sometimes we let our "failures" dictate how we move forward. But by realizing that every day - especially Monday - can be a "do-over" or "re-start" we can move forward.

It's a new way to look at my favorite quote from Finding Nemo. As Dory put it, "just keep swimming."

Some days, you can only keep swimming, moving forward or taking one step at a time.

So, today is a New Week (yes it's Tuesday, but yesterday didn't count!), and a new start.
