I've written in the past about my usual end of year ritual in terms of resolutions.
Then I saw this list of things happy people do, and these look like things I should be doing too.
And, there's this list of resolutions, written in 1942 by Woody Guthrie - I wonder how he did with them...
In addition to being clean, taking care of himself and loving the important people in his life, I'm particularly fond of items 17-20:
17. Don't Get Lonesome
18. Stay Glad
19. Keep Hoping Machine Running
20. Dream Good
May we all keep our Hoping Machines running as we dream good in 2012. Happy New Year!
