These are not resolutions. No way, no how. These are instead declarations of intent for the forthcoming year...
In 2012, I will:
Keep my family close, no matter how far away.
Know what's important, and if necessary, fight for it.
Have the courage of my convictions.
Trust my gut instinct - it's right more often than I'm tempted to give it credit for.
Have decent chocolate to hand. A little of the good stuff is usually better than a lot of the rubbish alternative (this last applies as much to wine as it does to chocolate, by the way).
Remember that life is too short to make your own mayonnaise.
Not eat if I'm not hungry.
