1/5/13 Confessions and resolutions

Sunday, January 06, 2013

I have been very spotty lately and I think it is time for confessions and resolutions.... I have to face a few issues and come out on the other side.

first confession: I had quite a fight with one of my sister in laws and it has been bugging me. Not that we had a fight - but that I didnt get to finish it!! I know, I know I should not be that way - BUT is has been nagging at me
Resolution - I am going to write a letter to my sister in law and lay it all on the line - every last bit of it. Then I am going to burn the letter and be done with it! I need to have my say but I dont need to add to the fight.

Second confession: I am worried about my adult children's finances - they spend money like it is water!
Resolution: They are ADULTS - my worries are not going to change a thing. I am going to buy them each a book by Suze Orman for their upcoming birthdays. They are smart enough to figure it out.

Third confession: I was cast in the local play and was very happy until I saw my play spouse is considerably YOUNGER than me. So now I have been worrying about every line on my face, every pound on my rear.
Resolution: Every time I exercise I look younger, when I exercise I can listen to my lines and learn them faster. I can do this and I will look just fine for the play.

Fourth confession: I have been LAZY with exercises.
Resolution: I am going to exercise every day, put a smile on my face and go forward the very best I can do.

    Laying everything out there and then confronting them, is great. I really like the one about your kids finanaces and I am going to steal that idea and use it myself. It's about time the bank of "Mom and Dad" shut down the loan department. (I use the term "loan" loosely.)

    Good for you for being honest with yourself - facing these things - and taking positive action.


P.S. May I ask the title of the book?

    Great confessions and resolutions - specific and measurable, and kind as well - both to you and to others. You will be a star! Smile and have fun with your play.
