We brought back our New Year’s Resolution Contest and once again we received an outpouring of colorful and thoughtful resolutions from our fans. It was inspiring and enriching to read through each response; so inspiring in fact that we couldn’t honor just one! Therefore we have decided to award one grand prize winner, two runners-up and five honorable mentions. Thank you to all who participated; good luck in keeping your resolutions and we hope to hear from you again next year!
Here we go…
The 6’ x 9’ rug of choice goes to Julie M. Webster who shared the following resolution:
“My resolution started earlier than the New Year (December 27th), because I want it to be a lifestyle change! I set up a “Success Corner” in my bedroom that has inspirational quotes, photos of me from happy periods of my life, pictures of my baby boy and Joe Manganiello (LOL), owls because i love them, and other things to help motivate me to eat healthier, be more generous and kind, put others before myself, and try to make a difference in the world! “Some succeed because they are destined to; most succeed because they are determined to.” My motto for the year!”
The following runners-up will receive a 2’6 x 8’ rug of their choice!
~ G. Clark
“My resolution is to stay present to the moment and the day with which I’ve been blessed. I’m always planning way too far into the future. By paying attention to the here and now it will hopefully enhance my senses to all of the color in my world. My mantra: Be present today!”
“My New Year’s resolution is not to have to make New Year’s Resolutions any longer and to live a life without criticism, judgment and guilt. Live and let live and accept people with their “imperfections” and they hopefully accept mine. To give without expecting back, to help by being supportive, and to accept that I can’t change others, but I can only change myself.”
Finally our honorable mentions will receive any 2’ x 3’ rug of their choice!
