Bill at A Silly Place wrote a post, a challenge really, that got me thinking about what I’ll be doing next year. Thank you, Bill. You can read his post here and join his challenge if you so choose.
Consider yourself tagged.
Bill’s challenge is to forget about traditional formal New Year Resolutions, which I’ll admit have always seemed a bit overblown and idealistic to me.
Instead you commit to a few specific Goals that you monitor as the year goes along. It’s not as highbrow as declaring New Year Resolutions, but probably more doable because more pragmatic.
At least in my estimation.
While I usually shy away from anything that involves numbers, preferring to go with the wordy flow rather than mess with any dodgy numbers, I’m going to try this challenge because I am open-minded & curious.
My modest Goals are:
- go for a walk five days a week;
- cook four vegetarian meals each month;
- donate three boxes of unwanted stuff to charity each month;
- go on two vacations somewhere that is not here; and
- read one book that is currently on our bookshelves each month.
But wait there’s more.
In keeping with my longstanding habit of deciding on a Word of the Year, while I pursue these numerically-based Goals I’ll implement my 2022 Word of the Year. It is how I shall do these things.
My word is ENJOY.

Do you make New Year Resolutions?
Do you think that setting Goals, as opposed to making New Year Resolutions, is an intriguing way to state your intentions?
Do you pick a Word of the Year?
Keeping my 2022 Word of the Year in mind, what do you think of the *Christmas* music video below?
