The year is almost over, and it’s time to revisit my New Year’s resolutions. For some reason, I was overly ambitious during the beginning of the year. I decided to make not one but five resolutions. Now I have four remaining and less than 3 weeks to go and very little chance of accomplishing the remaining four. Here are the four I failed…
- Pay off credit cards and stop spending soooooooooo much money. Well, I paid off some credit cards but not all. And kept spending money. I love spending money. I just need to keep making more money. Shopping brings me joy. I used to think of it as therapy. But now that I’m seeing a licensed therapist, I have no reason to use retail therapy to fill the void. And by void I mean the drought. And by this I mean the dry spell. But, I think I can smell the rain. Almost. This one will be carried over to 2009. I think I have a pretty good chance of accomplishing this in 2009.
- Learn to swim. Didn’t happen. Don’t have a good excuse. I did float in the pool a lot. And there were always neighbors around just in case the floatation device failed and I needed to be rescued from drowning. And maybe I was secretly hoping to get a little CPR action from a certain neighbor. I’m going to try this again next year.
- Try to stay in a relationship for more than 2 months. I guess if I count two months in dog years (times 7) then I did accomplish this. But if I’m doing real math, I totally failed. But, my licensed therapist has been helping me deal with my issues. Turns out I have fear of commitment and fear of abandonment. Go figure.
- Try to figure out what to do with my life. Still working on this… Need direction.
