The Madison Record

Resolutions range from better grades to better self-image

New Year’s resolutions date back to ancient Babylonians, the Romans and medieval knights, but what are people resolving to do in 2013?

“I want to live each day like it’s my last,” Dee Green said. “If the Mayans had been right, I would have been so unfinished. I want to go out with pearls on.”

Chris Dugger has resolved to quit smoking by using electronic cigarettes and to work out at the gym. “I’ve never made a resolution before. Wish me luck,” Dugger said.

Maribel Tan “promises I will not make any promise I can not keep.”

Leigh Arnold Christian will “make goals — I work towards them. Resolutions I always break.” Her goal is to improve physically, mentally and spiritually and then share in her blog.

In 2013, Angie Hood resolves “to keep things in perspective. We’re so blessed here in Madison and have much more than most people in Alabama and certainly more than most people in the world. I want to face every hardship that might come to me by seeing the positives and encourage others to be positive.”

Kate Hood pledges “to show Christ to others in every action I do and to be ‘love’ to the community of Madison.” She also pledges to make all A’s this semester at Calhoun Community College, where she is studying to be a paramedic.

“My resolution is to pay attention where I park so I’m not always wandering the parking lot … and, oh yes, to get healthy,” Beth Mumaw said.

Wyndie Meyer made several resolutions: “Take care of myself, finish my master’s degree finally (just three classes), publish a book, see those that I love more. Overall, stop putting things off because they may be unpleasant.”

Angela True avoids New Year’s resolutions. “They slip off the slippery slope of my mind! I don’t make them as I try to live everyday as if it were my last. I love hard and try to be a good steward of the earth. I may not be the best at either, but, my momma always says, ‘When you know better, you do better.'”
