Another year has come and gone. As we look back over the wonderful memories and the challenges we faced, our thoughts eventually turn to the year ahead. What will the New Year bring? What goals should we set for ourselves, not only as writers and readers, but as mothers, fathers, siblings, and even neighbors? Leading up to the New Year, we contemplate setting resolutions with the best intentions. Some are doable, some necessary and some simply unattainable (despite our best intentions). Some are even laughable or silly. And that’s okay too. Laughter is good for the soul.
Here are some of the silliest New Year’s resolutions I’ve run across over the years. They made me laugh, reminded me not to take this thing we call life so seriously. I hope you enjoy them too.
I will always replace the gas nozzle before driving away from the pump.
I will cut down on exercise. Too much is bad for your health, it can even kill you.
I will drive more carefully; people are starting to notice the dozens of dents in my car.
I will not hang out with girls – they think you love them and that sucks.
I will never again take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
I will stop saying,” Ooh, that feels good” when the security guy frisks me at the airport.
I resolve to stop poisoning my family with my cooking.
I will work less. Take it easy. All work and no play makes for a very dull woman.
I will take up a worthwhile new habit, like smoking – it helps keep tobacco workers in jobs.
I will eat only white snow!
I resolve to find out what the hell ‘resolution’ means anyway.
And finally…I promise this year to stick to these resolutions for more than a week.
What about you? Do you make New Year’s resolutions? Do you find it hard to stick to them? We’d love to hear about your resolutions for 2017. Or about a silly New Year’s resolution that made you laugh. Share with us by leaving a comment below.
Thank you so much, Delilah, for hosting me on your blog. Wishing you all a very blessed and prosperous New Year!

*Finalist* Independent Author Network 2015 Book Awards, Romance Category
Season Scrimshaw isn’t selling the land her parents left her when they died, not even to the gorgeous Rann Brogan who saves her life in the forest. Especially not after she finds out he was in the woods to survey her property.
The company Rann works for—his mother’s company—wants the land for a luxury condo development and they want it bad. He never dreamed they’d go to such extreme lengths to get it.
Lives spiral out of control, lies and betrayal play center stage. Caught in the middle between his rich and powerful mother and the woman he loves, Rann discovers love is complicated…and sometimes lethal.
(A stand-alone contemporary romance with elements of suspense.)
