Just keep trying.
This was written for this week's Trifecta Writing Challenge. We were to write a three-word resolution.
Resolutions are a yearly tradition in our house. As we eat our New Year's dinner, each of us shares our intentions for the new year, while I document them on my computer. The best part of the year is reading aloud the previous years' resolutions and examining our successes (and failures).
Last year, my son had thirty-eight resolutions, my daughters had thirty-four and twenty-four. My husband had three, one of which was move. I also had three, each of which involved exercise, writing and weight loss.
I find it funny that probably the most difficult resolution made last year--move--was the one we kept: After ten long years of being away, we are again at home. And so, this year, I'll just keep trying with my other resolutions, celebrating small successes and not mourning those failures brought on by writer's block and soothed with an extra cookie or three.
