New Year's Resolutions

You know, every year at this time of year, we all sit around wondering what about our lives we should change. Most of us pick something fairly similar every year . . . lose weight, save some money, quit drinking, quit smoking, something like that.

But I thought it might be helpful to give people new ideas on an age old ritual. So here are some suggestions for your new year's resolutions.

1. Be more patient when you get stuck in a parking lot. Especially at church. It just is not nice to flip off (or flick off if you are younger than me) the poor volunteer guy who is trying to direct traffic. I mean, come on people, is that REALLY what Jesus would do?

2. Be grateful for the people who serve you your food at a fast food restaurant. Don't be mean to them or treat them like they are stupid. I cannot imagine their jobs are a whole lotta fun.

3. When someone does something nice for you, say thank you. Don't act like they owed it to you. Not cool.

4. Keep in mind that the teenager at the pharmacy is probably making minimum wage and she's NOT the reason your kid is sick. Be nice to her and don't take out your frustrations with the insurance company on her.

5. If you go into the bathroom, and you see that the toilet paper roll is empty, go ahead and take the time to put the new roll actually ON the toilet paper dispenser. Seriously.

I could probably think of a few more, but I'll give you a chance to add your own suggestions.

All that to say, new year's resolutions can be way more fun if you are making them for someone else!
