#Question of the Month: a #bloghop to think about. No. 8- What are some new year’s #resolutions you’ve had in the past?

A little while ago, Michael D’Agostino, of A Life Examined, brought up the idea of a new blog hop called Question of the Month. He thinks blog readers would like to know a little more about us, the bloggers. So we’re all gathering to show you guys who we are by taking part in the Question of the Month blog hop. On the first Monday of each month, we answer the question that gets posted here.

This month’s question is: “What are some new year’s resolutions you’ve had in the past?”

It’s been a while since I’ve really set any New Year’s Resolutions. I typically have so many other goals and deadlines to meet throughout the year that I simply don’t want to add on to anything at the beginning of the year. Plus, I go through a period of consecration each year, as do many Christians, and that’s usually when I stretch myself either mentally, physically, or both.

With that being said, I’ll admit that in the back of my mind I’m always thinking this will be the year I:
Lose weight,
Read more,
Hone old skills I’ve lost, such as: sewing, speaking Spanish, and programming.

I’d say that the last real resolution I set for myself was back in 2009. I told myself that I’d write a book and then I did. I have other goals I hope to meet, but I’m not setting any limitations on when they’ll get met.

Since it’s a new year, and if you feel like trying something new, why not check out my blog hop. It’s a great way to sample new-to-you books. Check my categories to see previous posts or click on BooktagsBlogHop to learn more.

Also, please visit the other participants in this hop and even join in if you’d like.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords

  1. I think meeting goals and deadlines throughout the year is better than creating some overwhelming list of resolutions to stress you out and not be totally met. I like your thinking on this.

  2. I lose a little weight at a time so I don’t gain it back. I’ve lost forty pounds and have sixty to go–though I haven’t weighed myself lately so it could be less. I take advantage of every opportunity I find to speak Spanish because I don’t want to forget it. Congratulations on writing a book.
