·       Yesterday we were scared from what will happen at 2000, they said computers might not cope with 000 , days passed quickly with its different events,violence,killing,wars,global worming threats,so many bad things occur …and few good thinks happened.

·       Now we are in 2010…we still alive, and in the past years:so many died, so many killed, so many became disabled, so many get married ,so many become grandfathers and grandmothers,children became youth …life circle pass and many do not feel…

·       Let us live few minutes of what we have done in the past years at least in the past year…

·       We should not think of ourselves only we are a part of the world, and there is a lot of suffering…

·       Let us plan what we will do for humanity, for children and elderly” one day we will be so”, for envirnment, for poor people for homeless, for creatures and global warming threats…etc

·       lets remember what good things we did if did any and what bad things we did if we did sure we did…let us balance that, think how old are you multiply it with 365 days and figure out sum of things done…so many, so many…

·       Lets decide to do good things for ourselves and others…Let us pray requesting that we will do the good things before we die…one day we will be dead …then are we going to Hell or to Heaven … let us do and pray fire will eat us…

Sylvia Foidl said it for me, and probably better than I could. I just want to add that I must throw myself deeply into my own creativity, developing it to the inth degree. I also want to wish every member a glorious New Year and new decade. Let’s give it all we’ve got! Onward and upward!

3.     Teresa Wlosowicz says   Jan 2, 2010 10:54 AM

I have one resolution to make. I’m a chatterbox by nature, so I’ll try to keep always silent, unless I’m explicitly asked to talk. Otherwise I won’t even make phone calls (unless on business) and when I’m at a party, I’ll just sip at my beer and shake my head, as one of my friends does. (Of course, I’ll have to talk at work, because I’m an academic teacher.)

4.      Robert B. says   Jan 2, 2010 9:16 AM

-        To continue to stand up to ignorance, stupidity and bullies.

-        2- To create more art this year.

-        3- To appreciate my family and friends and not to take them for granted.

-        4- To live my life based on knowledge, love, compassion and common sense.

-        5- To always remember that there is always more to a story than meets the eye.

-        6- To always think before speaking (or typing:)”

-        7- To try to leave this world in better condition before I die.

-        8- To volunteer more.

-        9- To fight for animal welfare.

-        10- To fight for the environment.

-        It’s going to be a BUSY YEAR! :)

try to see the positive side (if there is one) of my son-in-law:)

6.     Tara H. says   Jan 2, 2010 7:25 AM

·       -To be more assertive with my life. Be more independent and not fearful and lazy.

·       -To be more spiritual and meditate often.

·       -To not search for love but to embrace it when it comes into my life.

·       -To participate in more environmental and community organizations and activities.

·       -To open my mind more. 

7.     Regina Carpenter says   Jan 2, 2010 7:08 AM

Holidays come and go, and they don’t make much of an impression on me. But I try, day to day, to use my experiences to grow. My latest resolution is to refuse to allow my ego the upper hand. I choose to remain calm, with an open mind, no matter what happens to me. I refuse to get angry, or to lash out at those who disagree with me. I choose to be a part of the solution, instead of being part of the problem. I invite all who read this to join me in leaving negativity behind. 

8.     Kathy Browne says    Jan 2, 2010 5:09 AM

I want to dupicate M.W #4

Organize & keep organized my sewing room

It is my hub & if that is neat everything else will fall into place for me.

9.     Jeanne B. says   Jan 2, 2010 4:39 AM

I wish to meditate to develop gratitude and joy, for my own sake, but also to spread it around me. I know so much about loss and despair, surely I can let go of all that fills me with grief, loss and despair and move on to greater heights. Bless you all at Care 2, with a little extra for animal lovers!

Let all of us think and act to protect our environment, fight poverty and ensure basic health.

I want to hit the gym and become more fit so I have more energy to fight the good fight !!

7:26PM PST on Jan 4, 2010

Instead of promises, I intend to continue being a minimal consumer, energy user, recycler and innovator, spreading the word about love, intimacy (honest communications in all modes) and synergy over competition and capitalism.

11:34AM PST on Jan 4, 2010

I will be more involved with the CARE2 Community, sign more petitions, make my voice heard.
I have been reading Deepak Chopra's book on Peace and will be trying to follow his ideas.
I will work for peace, health care, for ending hunger, for a better environment, for human rights, for more nonviolent methods of gaining what the nation, the world needs.
I will strive to take a positive, hopeful attitude.

8:08AM PST on Jan 4, 2010

I will not think of myself but give to others and be more spiritual. Only watch good things on TV and read good books. I will not get into worldly things and narcissism should fly out of the window. The media is sick so learn from it. 7 billion people in this one world , means we need to pay attention and be responsible for ourselves. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!!!

7:25AM PST on Jan 4, 2010

I will take refuge in the Three Jewels to help all sentient beings become enlightened.
