2012 (Hopefully) Bucket List

Each year, when New Year's Resolutions roll around, I become a bit anxious. In fact, sometimes I tend to avoid them altogether. Ask those who know me well and you'll quickly learn that I am an all-or-nothin' kind of person. If I slip up once--just once--it's all over.

Last year, I only made one resolution. Something that was so important to me that it needed it's own, special attention. With as busy as life had become in 2010, I resolved that in 2011 I would keep all my commitments. Birthday parties, meetings, etc. I wouldn't bail on anyone and would work hard to live up to the expectations others had of me.

I am happy to announce that I made it through the whole year, and from my recallable memory, I actually lived up to it!

The best part? After a few months, it became natural, and by the end of the year I didn't even have to think about it.

Now that is what resolutions are for.

So, this year, forget resolution(s)... I'm only going for a single resolution and 2012 (Hopefully) Bucket List!

My 2012 New Year's Resolution is... 

To find ways to serve wherever I go; simple or complex.
