I hope everyone has a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year My resolution .... oh wait, I don't make resolutions Ok, this is what I tell myself every night before I go to sleep, I WILL wake up happy and take it from there. Most of the time it works. How about you, do you tell yourself how to feel when you wake up? Have you ever thought about trying?

I am usually content if I wake up because eventually it will not happen.

Well in that case I'll expect you to wake up happy every morning from now on, of course you'll have to write about it so we'll know

Unless there's a crisis to be met @DianneN but I've noticed that even then you keep some of your humor.

I hope the same for you. I try to be happy but there are times the grumpiness takes over when I don't want to get up. I will do better next year.

I try to remember that if I wake up alive there's no reason to be grumpy, maybe that could work for you

@rebelann I'm always glad to wake up. Just so comfortable and warm that I don't want to get up.

I only worry if I wake up facing a rattler, that really wouldn't be fun.

I rarely remember any dreams I may have but if I wake up alive and happy that's enough for me.

Well, it can't hurt. It's also easier to attain than trying to keep up something for a whole year.

Actually, I have done this before. I tell myself that I will wake up in a good frame of mind and take any negatives with a grain of salt and seek positivity all day. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. Depends on how much sleep I get!

I imagine a lot of what sets your mood is whether or not the boys are ok, when they're sick it must be hard to be in a good mood.

happy new Year, may you have a better.

I'm so glad you like my photo, I got lucky with that shot. I make nightly and daily resolutions but only if I know I can achieve them.

No, but I should. My goal is to wake up thanking G-d for another day, regardless of what that day will bring.

Ahh yes, I usually do the thanking once I've awoken.

I always think about it and give it a try. Each year I want eat healthier and getting in better shape physically. I do so for the most part but there is always room for improvement. Happy New Year.

Resolutions do not serve much of a purpose, they're so easy to break so why even bother. I like starting my day happy, usually the rest of the day is pleasant as well.
