So I decided that my major resolution for 2009 is to have a positive attitude when I get up in the morning. If you have that, you are less likely to do things I sometimes have a problem with:
1) Say mean things while trying to be funny/not thinking.
2) Take things too seriously when others are in a bad mood.
3) Not communicate when I feel like it is worthless to do so.
4) Dwell on things in the past and create an air of distrust for those who love me.
In general, having a good attitude helps me think of each day as a gift.
I've been able to do that for 6 days so far. 4 days more than I've ever been able to keep any other resolution.
