What resolutions do you have for 2005?

  1. Happy New 2005 to one and all of the nurses in West Virginia. I know this is the same old question we ask every new year, but are you really committed to any resolutions for this new year? I plan on getting healthier, leaner, and in some cases, meaner. Let us hear about the plans you have made. Anybody getting married soon, having a baby, changing jobs, moving, building a new home?

    HA. I gave up resolutions years ago. However, my goal for the year is to finish my LPN program. Until I get through that I can't focus on anything else.

    I was going to make some resolutions, then realized that I've yet to keep one.

    These are the ones I wanted to make:
    -- Lose 94 pounds
    -- Finally leave my current job

    Come to think of it, I do have ONE unofficial resolution that I've been determined to keep:
    -- Become my own woman!
    What I mean is this: In the past, my parents have been privy, thanks to my big mouth, to every little detail of my life. So naturally they feel inclined to lecture me about all the things I'm doing wrong personally and how to fix them. Psychologically speaking, I've never really cut the apron strings. I left home years ago, yes, but emotionally we still have a parent-child relationship. No wonder I can't think for myself!
    So now I'm going to plan, make decisions, and live life--as a grown woman.

    Good Luck on school.

    As a mother and grandmother, I want to say I do understand what you are saying about the input from parents. Please remember that they love you and only want the best for you. You have identified most of the problem yourself, keep quiet about your personal problems until you are ready to ask, tell, and hear for anyone's input. I wish you the best in 2005.

    I did lose weight but I was sick when I did it, so does that count? Have a happy 2005.
