No Resolutions....

...only this thought:

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson



No resolutions for me this year.
They aren't something I tend to do well.

(Is that in itself a resolution?:)

Sorry. Yes. That is a resolution.

Greetings from Minneapolis!

I tried that last year, Because of just life that was going on, this year, well, I am making them only being very,very careful what kind I make. I am leaning towards only ones with very short time frames. Things like cleaning out the cupboard under my bathroom sink on Saturday. Things like that. :)

Joe said...

I don't make resolutions either. I can't find anything about me that need changin' ;). LOL!!!

ruthy ann said...

amen to that!

texwisgirl said...

I think you should make a resolution to take lots more photos and post more wonderful posts for us, your fans. It'd be a cinch! :)

Deb said...

that is a great photo...

Lynne H. said...

Dawn- I don't do resolutions because life has a way of switching things up, then we feel guilty when they do not come to fruition..
You continue to live they way you have, and joy will be yours..
Thank you for being a great blogging pal and look for an email tomorrow from me:-)

Judy said...

I'm not good with them either. I love the quote, it's perfect like the photo!

Patrice said...

Great post and photos! I agree with you about resolutions! No way, no how!

I never have made one, I figure keeping happy and helping others is always a good one to pursue for a lifetime goal.

I don't make resolutions exactly...I make a mental list of things I'd like to "get done" each year. That way its not so bad if it don't get to it (or if I just forget!)

Tracy said...

Dawn, the photo is stunning! and for resolutions; nope, don't make them but I do try to set a goal. However, one blog I follow thinks of a word and tries to live by it in her life in all aspects such as 'serenity' or 'simplify' which I think is a pretty cool idea!

Farmchick said...

I do try to make a couple and stick with them.

Jen said...

How how I love that quote!!

What a perfect quote and I am with you no resolutions only intents. Maybe I will make it a point to read more.

Pat Tillett said...

I've never accomplished a resolution, so I've resolved NEVER to make them again...
hey wait!

Jimmy said...

No resolutions for me this year, I suppose that could be a resolution, but I do like to wing it myself and take life as it comes.

Carmi said...

I hear ya. I've never been one to make reservations: It seems so, I don't know, artificially forced and contrived to wake up as the new year approaches and make a list of things you want to change. Shouldn't that be a constant, year-round thing?

I touched on this very thing a few years back:

But you said it so much better than I ever could.

Allison said...

I love the quote, too. I will take that with me in this new year... thank you, Dawn!xoxo

Nancy said...

Dawn, I figure if I haven't already done it by now, I probably won't be starting anytime soon. How's that grab you? Haha!

Love the photo and glad you aren't going to do something to change in 2011. Love you just the way you are. :)

Donna said...

Hi Dawn! Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! I Love your blog and all of your great photos! Stop by anytime and Happy New Year to you and your family...
Donna

Leah J. Utas said...

Yes. Good one.

In My Tennis Shoes said...

Hahaha! I know what you mean! I honestly haven't decided if I'm going to have any resolutions this year. In the past I've never really took them seriously...

Have a lovely new year and wonderful 2011!

CarrieJo said...

Dawn, I LOVE your shot! And the quote is one of my favorites, it really is what lies within each one of us and the here and now that are meaningful. Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery and today is the present. A present is a gift! Cherish the moments, the days look after themselves.

And I'm with you, no resolutions for me neither. I'm too good at breaking them! ;-)

such a beautiful photo and so much truth in the quote
