Resolutions and other Crazy Ideas -- Lauren Bjorkman

Recently, an author I know posted a New Years resolution to find the joy in writing, again. I totally got what she meant. Editorial letters, deadlines, and sales numbers can dim a person's happiness.

I thought about stealing her resolution, except I have been enjoying writing a lot lately. So I started a new list:

1. Worry less about editorial letters, deadlines, and numbers.
2. Be a more patient parent
3. Listen more, talk less
4. Exercise more, slouch less
5. Become a better human being
6. Stop foraging in the refrigerator while stressing about editorial letters

And the list goes on. But none of these constitute New Years resolutions. They are permanent ongoing goals. I needed something new, something attainable. So here goes … (drumroll) … I resolve to brush my teeth twice a day.

And stop lying to my hygienist.

Happy New Year!


  1. Cute post. I am especially guilty with #6 myself!

    I'm a new follower, but I like your blog a lot. Please check mine out if you'd like!

    Thanks :)

  2. Nice blog! I am following you on FB on Twitter. Wordpress is so annoying for not allowing followers (I have a wordpress blog, too, so I know). I hesitate to do an email subscription because I get 40 emails a day, as it is.
