A resolution I can keep.

I, like Kristi, was going to write something about resolutions, but I got distracted by videos of the British comedy game show "QI." (Let's face it, Stephen Fry is infinitely more interesting than anything that goes on in my feeble little mind.)

Well, so much for the being productive resolution. And you know what? I don't care, because I now know several quite interesting facts about anteaters and that somewhere there is a redwood tree named Adam. More important than that, though, is that I am laughing like a hyena and it feels great to laugh so much.

I'm also ignoring my resolution to write more by dancing like a fruitcake to every song that comes on my player. I suppose I could argue that it is a very round about way to keep my get in shape resolution, but mostly it is because the music makes me happy and happiness leads to dancing.

And, ultimately, that is the point of life, right? To be happy. Sure I could have sat here for a few hours and come up with something resembling a coherent story, but I wouldn't have been happy with it or myself. And that is just a waste of time.

So, now I have one resolution that I am sure to keep this year. I will be happy. I will dance like a moron when the mood strikes. I will laugh out loud at funny things that pop into my mind. My levity of spirit will carry me though any tough times that appear in the year ahead.

I invite you all to join me in my resolution and I hope you find the time to be simply happy and to enjoy the little things in life.


  1. Dance break!

    Great post. "I will be happy" is at the top of my list now. Thanks.

  2. Watching QI would probably have inspired a resolution for me along the lines of "I really must watch more QI".

  3. That's my girl! Dance away! The only thing you're missing is a cat to dance with.
