Stick to the List

I have often wondered if making a list of New Year's Resolutions is really a good thing. Does it just set us up for disappointment and a feeling of failure? Or keep us from stretching and improving in areas that aren't mentioned on the list?

The other day I asked Bud if he could please do a better job of listening to me, and told him that I'd really like it if he could work on being more patient. He responded, "But it's not on my list of goals!"

Hmmm. I guess that answers my question.

That's funny!! Maybe he can get to that NEXT year. (Actually, I don't make new years resolutions for that very reason--I feel like I'm setting myself up for failure and disappointment. I either don't do them at all, or I do smaller goals for a month instead of a year.)
