My New Year's Resolution

Every New Year's Day, I love to sit down and write out my goals for the next 12 months. And like most people, I make resolutions. Does "lose weight" or "exercise more" sound familiar? I thought so.

But this year is a bit different for me. There's nothing quite like ringing in a new year after a cancer diagnosis. Suddenly those old resolutions seem lame. Not that losing weight or working out is lame. Being healthy is always a good thing. It's just that my old resolutions don't seem to matter quite so much anymore.

So this year I have just one resolution: Enjoy my life.

What does that mean exactly? I guess you will have to keep reading to find out!


  1. My sentiments exactly. Each day counts for making the best of each year!

  2. Perfect post, Jen! My old resolutions seem somewhat lame as well. My new year's resolution is: STAY ALIVE. That will mean adopting a healthier lifestyle overall, but this time, I have something to motivate me. Keep us posted of your progress with enjoying life.
