Working on your New Year’s Resolutions? Sure anyone can resolve to lose weight, eat healthier and save more, but this year make a resolution you might actually keep! Resolve to learn or do something you have always wanted to!
Jealous of the dancers on Dancing with the Stars? Learn ballroom dancing. Always wanted to be in a band? Learn to play an instrument. Think you would be good at chess? Pick up a book or computer game. Want to knit your baby some booties? There’s no better time to learn. The possibilities are endless- local high schools and community centers offer all kinds of classes which don’t have to break the bank. Train for a marathon, volunteer your time, learn to use your computer (this one’s for my dad – he reads my emails then calls me back on the phone with an answer!), finally do your family tree, anything you have been putting off – there’s no time like the present.

What am I going to learn this year you ask? Well my list is long, but in choosing ONLY one thing I may actually stick to it. This summer I am going to take surfing lessons. I have been thinking about it for a while and I am finally going to do it. I’ll never be Kelly Slater, but I hope to have fun, get some exercise and show my kids you are never too old to try something new. Hang 10 in 2009!
