Resolution Reflection

I soul searched
and researched
to get my resolutions right.

Eat healthy!
Be wealthy!
I've tried with all my might.

January's ending,
my resolve is bending -
looks like there won't be a "new" me.

I'll keep my pudgy core
and probably stay poor -
I resolve now to just be happy.

Aw, there's something so endearing about that "pudgy core." Yes, to be happy -- the best resolution of all.

This is fun--"pudgy core" is my favorite phrase. Happiness certainly is the most worthwhile resolution.

Thanks, Liz! Sometimes too much self improvement can lead to self destruction. Happiness is best what ever your size or bank account. = )

Thanks, Jama! Maybe the mantra for 2014 should be "happiness is a pudgey core". = )

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Liana! I whole heartily agree with my pudgey core. = )

Funny the excitement at the beginning of the month, and now-'the resolve is bending'! I like that you're settled for yourself, good to be happy always!

But wait! You can start all over again with the Chinese New Year!

I like the rhythm of your poem!

Bridget Magee said...

So true, Linda! As life goes on one must decide to be in fix-it mode or be happy now mode. I'm opting be being happy now. I'm happy you read my blog. = )

Bridget Magee said...

I hadn't thought of that, Mary Lee! Chinese New Year is a great do-over for a fresh start. Love it! = )

Funny reflection, resolve is bending as January is ending. Isn't that the truth!
