#SoCS Dec. 30/17 – Resolution

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “resolution.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Resolutions – at this time of year, they can be the bane of our lives.

What are we planning on changing in our lives in the New Year?

New car? New home? New career? New body? New holiday? New you?

Do you know what I want?

To be content.

For all those around me to be happy.

Aside from a few lbs that come and go, I’m pretty happy with myself physically.

I have a home, food on the table and a loving family.

I wouldn’t mind a holiday, but that’s not essential.

My car gets me from A to B and I do love my job, however tough it gets at times.

I have friends.

Good friends.

I have my Blogily.

What more can I ask for?

Okay, I do have one resolution for 2018.

I need to finish my WIP! Before it turns from teen into adult, I need to finish this story!!!!!!!


You got me.

My one resolution.

What are your intentions for 2018?


Happy Saturday Peeps!

    Great post. I’ve not made a NYR for 30 or more years, but from this point on I will make an exception: to reduce the amount of plastic I buy/use and to be more ‘earth conscious.’

    That’s a good one, too. Much more realistic than many people’s. Good luck, and all the best to you in 2018! 🙂

    To be content…YES to that! Instead of dwelling on what we don’t have or the not-so-good things that happen to us, let’s be content in who we are and the lovely people that surround us. Excellent resolution, Ritu, and I also hope you finish your WIP.

    I absolutely love your list, Ritu. I feel much the same way. To mine I add write children’s book #2 (celebrating finishing #1 after many years and a tough / wonderful editor), discipline to create more time so I don’t feel stressed about getting everything done, and giving more to others. Happy New Year! 🎊

    Contentment or Happiness are more important than anything else. When we are content and happy then we don’t miss something and always hold our heads up! Looking forward to your WIP turning into a WC (work completed).
