Have you made any resolutions for the New Year? If not, why not?

No! Do not know why anyone needs to wait until Jan. 1 to make a decision, to do or not to do something. There are 365 days a year to accomplish your goals.

I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. I make resolutions almost every day and don’t keep them, so why would Dec. 31 be any different?

Barbara Extract, Issaquah

I have not made any New Year’s resolutions. I can do something anytime; I don’t have to do it as a New Year’s resolution.

Becky Wilder, Issaquah

I resolve to be nicer in 2009.

Bryan Weinstein, Issaquah

No resolutions. If I really want to change something about myself, it changes, without a resolution. Any other attempts would fail. Failing is unpleasant.

Connie Marsh, Issaquah

I have learned a great deal about “resolutions” from a spiritual development point of view. When we admit that we are powerless, a window is opened for the ability that only God gives through the work of the Holy Spirit of God. This is humbling, but that is the attitude necessary to face my issues with the courage that is promised in Christ.

Don Burnett, Issaquah

I resolve to stop and appreciate the people and things in my life more often, and to reach out more often to those who have less.
