Question of the Day #1,162

It's like this
I ask for a question
in the inner circle

We God Bless away
Because everyone knows if it wasn't for him
We wouldn't be "us"
We contemplate the 2011 "shoulda's," "woulda's" and "coulda's"
The "either or's"
And the "what you would have done differently's"
But none of it's important when you're sitting in the circle
12 hours past your original resolution
Enjoying the hum
Of rambling questions
And loving laughter

For an instant, it feels just like yesterday, last week, last month
Where everything is the same
And nothing's different

Except hope.

How will you make 2012 different than 2011?

xoxo,
Suzanne

  1. I keep my resolutions easy to obtain. So, 2012 won't be much different than 2011.

  2. No resolutions per se, but instead a continuation of what I hope to improve upon in myself for the new year: a renewed commitment to health (with the additional challenge of losing those pregnancy pounds!), a new focus on family and being the best mom I can be to my little girl. I think that's enough for now. :)

  3. Just constantly improving myself, as I try to do regularly anyway :)

  4. Besides hitting my weight-loss goal and becoming more fit, I'd really like to work on being more compassionate in 2012. It's so easy to roll my eyes or blurt out a snarky comment about someone. I need to be nicer. We all need to be nicer.

  5. I resolve to stop picking my nose in the car like I'm invisible (yep, I'm that commuter). Happy to have found your blog!

  7. Yeah, that is the question. How will YOU make 2012 different...

    I'm still thinking about it, but I know I need to let go of more - things and worries - and then we'll see.

    Happy New Year!

  8. Oh I LOVE this! Sometimes your writing makes me ache for home. *sigh*

    As for resolutions, I'm quietly keeping them to myself but plan on making some subtle changes for my health & my heart.

  10. Gorgeous poem.
    Whew, this is a tough one. In 2011 I was about externally manifesting things in my life (jobs/trips/relationships), and in 2012 I'd like to have a deeper inner relationship. Devote more time to spirit.
