Who among you resolves?

Believe it or not, I’m doing okay with my New Years resolutions.  Except for that budget thing; that’s not going so well.  But the month’s not over, so there is hope for it, yet.  Actually, this post pertains to resolutions in more ways than one.  It is at once talking about resolutions and fulfilling a resolution.

You may or may not remember, but I resolved to get back on track with my Queries.  That poor little Hope picture has been hanging out on my sidebar since August 28th.  Four months!  Wow, I didn’t even realize it had been that long.  And I didn’t realize how much I’ve missed doing the Queries until I started hounding asking people to answer a new question.  Did you miss the Queries?  I hope so, because they’re back.  I resolved to make it so.

So, in honor of resolutions made and broken all over the world (ambitious, aren’t I?), here’s the new Query:  Do You Make New Years Resolutions?

    interesting idea. I think mine is to try and accept what I can and can not do. I have medical problems, that for various reasons slow me down. I am definally a type “A” personality and get impatience when there are so many block-aids in my way. I need to slow down and laugh more. I I would like to think I know this, but the lesson deepens each time, it perks up.Today I finally bought a cane. It’s really cool-Tiger Striped!-I’m still teniative about what people think -which is so stupid -but they are real feelings (my stepmother had one for years and knows Martial arts, rides a bike, and now that she is in wheel chair, she has a van that she drives, is socially active as well being artistically proficient.) So this is new, but I can walk a lot easier when I need it!! Trying to accept my own limitations physically is also continuing to impress me– with the strength of others–my eyes open to their hope and faith, in themselves and the world….

    • I think what you’re saying is wonderful. We all have limitations, and I think it’s important to learn to work with and around them instead of against them. Use your energy in the most productive way and you will see better results, which in turn will make you feel more accomplished and satisfied and happy. And hopeful. I’m trying to do the same things myself – work with what I have and within the framework of who I am. But also stretch the boundaries of who I am. It’s been difficult and frustrating and great and it’s made me realize how much more I can be.

      Good luck to you! I’m glad you got your cane and it’s helping you to be more mobile. Where I work, I see people with canes all the time, so I don’t think much of it. The more you use yours, the more comfortable you’ll feel.
