2015 New Year’s Resolutions

As I am bordering on compulsive when it comes to list making, I thought I’d mix things up a bit this year and NOT make a long list of New Year’s Resolutions.

Instead, I am going to make one overarching Resolution this year.  This one came from my daughter who suggested that I learn to play what she has called, The Suggestion Game.  Simply put, rather than keep making the same suggestions over and over to people, make it once.  That’s it.  As long as the persons isn’t deaf, they have heard the suggestion and can either take it or not, as the choose.  They can also ask for clarification if they need it and so there is no need for me assume they don’t understand and repeat the suggestion in different ways.  This is going to be a tough one for me!

Additionally I will make two resolutions each month focused on habits, one good and one bad.  They say that it takes 21 days (3 weeks) to form or break habit.  Let’s see if I can form one good habit and break one bad habit each month.

Here goes…


Positive Habit to Grow:


Drink at least five, 12 ounce glasses of water each day.




Negative Habit to discourage:

When something needs to be done, do it…don’t procrastinate.

As a matter of fact, that might be a good theme for the year, Do It Now!







  1. Great start to a new year!

  2. This is a great idea! I was definitely a little hesitant to post mine this year. I feel like they are getting redundant, and more and more of them become professional goals instead of the fun, silly stuff I used to post. But on the other hand, I like the fact that I have this way to hold myself accountable for a certain list of things every year — even if some of them are a little repetitive. It’s important to me to keep up with some of my old hobbies…even if it’s just a few times a year. We’ll see how it goes. 🙂 Are you drinking lots of water?
