20 New Year Resolutions For 2010

RHYMEO_AVI_smaller_cleanerWell it’s the first Monday after new years and so it’s time to publish some resolutions.  I’ve been thinking of what mine would be.  I’ve been thinking of what our state and country should be.  It seems some of the same ole resolution ideas come up year after year.

Carl Rove wrote in a recent story, “In 2010, Mr. Obama should work on his habit of leaving a room of people with deeply divided opinions thinking he agrees with all of them. That leads to disagreements over essential issues, like the meaning of his pledge to begin withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2011 and the nature of the new military mission there.

Finally, Mr. Obama should work on meaning what he says. He didn’t last year with all those health-care deadlines and tough talk supporting the public option. Now Mr. Obama will pivot to jobs and deficit reduction. As he tries to do that, voters will wonder if it’s just a ruse to save Democrats.”

I think America should resolve to not let Obama dismantle the constitution.

I think Pelosi should switch to decaffeinated coffee. When congressmen shout out, “Liar” in a national address she looks too perky and appalled.

I could go on about political resolutions, but all my remarks would be reworks of material already in my free ebook, “You May Be A TEApublican.”  Instead let me share where my thoughts have drifted to this week concerning personal resolutions.

Below are 20 of my favorite personal creeds called ‘Rhymeos” from my first book published way back in 1995 entitled “If I Could Live My Life Again, I’d Begin Today And Then…”

I’d do my dream
to the extreme.

I wouldn’t devote your soul
to the remote control.

I’d honor the band
on my left hand.

I’d follow the golden rule
not the folly of a fool.

I’d make it essential
to pursue potential.

I’d make more headlines
and meet more deadlines.

I’d plant more flowers
and work less hours.

I’d live by a budget
and try not to fudge it.

I’d pray for peace
and for wars to cease.

I’d take out less loans
and buy more sno-cones.

More cookies I’d dunk
in milk… kerplunk.

I’d pray for an answer
in the cure for cancer.

I’d over every flaw
of my mother-in-law.

I’d find a way to say
“I love you” everyday.

I wouldn’t gamble or bet
any valuable asset.

I’d swing my pelvis
just like Elvis.

I’d learn just how
to milk a cow.

I’d give more
to the poor.

I’d endeavor
to be clever.

I’d chase butterflies
under blue skies.

These “Rhymeos” were written under a combined pen name of Cyrano De Words-u-lac I share with my brother Dan. Here is our twitter link  Happy New Year!
