My 2017 resolution, what’s yours?

I have one simple resolution for 2017: more nature, less drama (unless it’s in my books).


I took this photo on the hilltop behind my daughter’s house. The wind seemed to be talking to me, but we’ve been out of touch too long. I couldn’t make out all the words. It broke my heart a bit.

Do you make New Year’s resolutions? Are you successful in making them stick?

A friend of mine suggested I try this site for inspiration, but I have to admit I’ve been too busy to do more than glance at it:


One of the quotes that made sense to me was: “You will never change your life until you change something you do daily”—Mike Murdock

That’s where nature comes in. My goal is to walk–and breathe deeply–every day. I am determined to give myself time to connect to the world outside my busy, frantic brain and truly focus on the world around me.

Will I be successful? Time will tell. All we can do is try, right?

Have a very happy New Year’s Eve, my friends. I’ll see you in 2017.


PS: If your resolution includes reading more, I do have a fun story that opens at a masked ball on New Year’s Eve.  You can start reading for FREE here: MONTANA REBEL.

  1. Every year I fall into the same trap as everyone else by making resolutions I never keep. This year I have decided to go about it a little differently. I plan to smile more, practice forgiveness and move on, and keep my focus on the positives and let the negatives go. Yes, hopefully I will be reading more, exercising more and trying to be healthy. I hope you have a wonderful New Year.

  2. Thanks for that positive answer, Katrina. I love it! In fact, I’m smiling as I type this, so your resolution is already working. I do think positive energy attracts other positive energy and smiles are a magnet.



  3. I decided to make goals rather than resolutions. In my mind a resolution is to change something. A goal is positive, a move to do something good.
