Resolutions Revisited

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…

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Try to figure out what to do with my life. Still working on this… Need direction.

  1. 1) You’re very poetic here….I like it.
    2) Ok…if you need help on this one I suggest you take a cruise with me.
    4) You are a wunderkind…the world is still thinking what to do with you.

  2. 1 – who pays off ALL their credit cards? I say that you accomplished the first… and had to readjust the spending goal as to better help the economy 😉

    2 – there’s still time for this… we just need an afternoon. I’ll teach you… swimming is my most favorite thing in the world

    3 – Key word here was “try”… you’ve been seeing your therapist for more than two months, so consider it a success!

    4 – See “3”

    You are amazing! Now let’s make it a resolution to see eachother soon 😉
