5 things to do before tomorrow ends...

1.) Reach out to that person you have been meaning to catch up with. Send an email, send a hand-written note, pick up the phone...just stop rationalizing your procrastination. If you care enough to need to justify your inaction, you care enough to re-connect. ( avoid ex's in this category. This is not a permissive directive, its more like an elbow nudge to forgive you-know-who)

1a.) Say to yourself: "FECK EM! He/She is the one who let the ball drop. Come to me, I can't save EVERY relationship!"

2.) On the left side of a piece of paper write down 3 things you are grateful for. On the right side, right down something you can do this year to keep it.

2a.) OR! Make a list of 3 things that BLOW right now, and then a drink name for each "THING" you will drink. ( breaking up = hairy whiskey on the rocks, fighting my mother = Tall grey goose, sprite and sour with a twist, feeling fat = bottle of red)

3.) Set an intention to say something positive or kind to everyone you encounter. Then Tuesday you can go back to cursing the world, but think how many people you see/talk to on NYE? That is paying forward for like 6 months.

3a.) OR! Just for fun, be really shitty to everyone tomorrow, that way you can set a resolution for be nicer to people, and the bar will have been set really low. (tee hee)

4.) Pick a song to be your theme song for January. "Walking on sunshine?"

4a.) OR! "Gimme More" ? S' one has to know you actually hear that song in your head and shower jam to it when no one is watching. "It's Britney Bitch."

5.) Come up with one new fear to conquer, and start the inspirational inner-rhetoric...see what happens. I bet you do it before spring.

5a.) OR! You can cling to your old habits, while claiming that next year or better yet, on your birthday, you will drop that stupid idea like a dirty condom on the subway.
