In Case You Need Something to Do in 2008

~ Pick out something you want to accomplish this year - whether it's a hobby you enjoy or you need to paint the kitchen or you want to learn to speak French - and do it. Even if you don't reach your goal, you'll still feel a sense of accomplishment if you work at it consistently.

~ Smile more. Shrug off small irritations more easily.

~ Sing loudly. Dance when the mood strikes.

~ Eat to make your whole body happy, not just your mouth.

~ Laugh at the same stuff that made you laugh when you were ten years old.

~ Forgive others even if they don't ask for it. Don't forget to forgive yourself for your own failings.

~ Remember just how fragile people really are. Remember how resilient they are as well.

~ Read something that'll make you smarter. Listen to music that'll make you feel more deeply.

~ Learn about people and cultures and religions with which you're not familiar. Don't hate but ask questions instead.

~ If someone does you a kindness, do one for someone else.

~ Count your blessings and express your gratitude.

May you all have a wonderful new year celebration and may 2008 be filled, for all of us, with happiness, good health, love and peace.

What a great list! My New Year's resolution is to move more, and so far I've kept it. I've also decided to learn how to make jewelry, and my mom and I made a necklace together on New Year's Day. So far, 2008 is great!

Dixie, nicely said! I love your list. I thought I'd drop by and check out your blog seeing as how we both run in the same blogspere circles (aka Geek Inside & The Mind Wobbles).

I hadn't made any new year's resolutions but your list could be this year's mantra. Well said!
