Resolved!

As it's New Year's Eve, 2012, and I'll be starting new posts on TMC tomorrow (see, it's been closed for a few days while we swept up the old cheese crumbs. Not a gouda job, but somebody had to do it!), I thought "Why not do a simulcast of today's end-of-year sendoff on RRR?" Soooo ... here 'tis:

Okay ... whilst we're waiting for the big ball to drop (which reminds me: I've gotta take my cat, Sir Jaxon in for neutering a week from now), it's also time to get festivities for the New year started. With that in mind, let me say, again HAPPY 2013 TO EVERYONE!

Actually, I think we're all happy 2012 is outta the way. And the best part is that we've got a totally-unused model waitin' for us in time's parking lot -- one that we can make into anything we wanna.
Most of us have made resolutions ... and some are gonna wonder, within a coupla days, why they haven't worked out. They think resolutions, like the money bill collectors want, must be due immediately, and transacted in full!

But it doesn't work that way. Y'see, it's a three-sided word: On the one hand, the noun "resolution" comes from the word, "resolve", which means "determination"; on the other hand, the verb and the computer versions of it means "clarification".
So if we can clarify our desire, and work at it with determination, we're there!
But it doesn't happen overnight ... ya gotta keep workin' at it until that desire becomes a reality!

Sometimes, we don't get it because we're so busy living in our little "comfort zones" that we tailor our resolutions to fit that, as we've always done. Remember the old saying, though (page 238 of the Old Sayings songbook): "If you always think like you always thought, you'll always get what you always got!" I think it means "always".

So, this year, I'm calling for a resolution revolution! Gettin' out from under the blanket of that comfort zone, taking a few calculated risks, and, even if we're feeling a bit like a fish outta water (any fish except cod. I believe in cod ...), going for it if it's honorable!
But we've still gotta be patient while these resolutions take hold. That's the hardest part. But we can do it if we wanna ... really, honestly wanna.
So, this New Year's Eve, why not resolve to throw back the covers of your comfort zone, get outta that bed of familiarity and rattle them pots and pans of faith, trust ... and positive movement?

That way, you can shake-rattle-&-roll yourself through a rockin' 2013!!

Stay tuned: New posts coming up in 24 ... 23:59 ... 23:58 ...
