New Years Resolutions

Does anybody make New Years resolutions?  More importantly, does anybody keep them?  How?  Each year I seem to make them and then break them in quick order. 

I thought I had the perfect one a few years ago - start no new projects.  I'm famous for having a "great" idea, getting all the materials and supplies together for the effort, even starting it, then. . . nothing.  It sits there partially done.  It could be a sewing project or an organizing one, or cooking or jewelry making or anything. 

So I figured I'd not let myself buy any new supplies and then just finish what I've already begun.  It worked for a while and then something else catches my fancy.  Or the next "great" idea comes along.  I have gotten better, just not as good I I should be.

I decided my resolution this year is to be healthier - mentally, phyically, spiritually, emotionally.  I'm not going to say I'm going to lose 50 pounds, or read so many books, and pray eighty-two times a day.  I want to do all that, but I'm going to try doing it little by little.  Maybe it will work.  Maybe it won't.  But if I'm a little better by the end of the year, I'll have succeeded.

What are your resolutions??
