Top Two 2012 Resolutions for Prisoner’s Wife/Partner

Top Two 2012 Resolutions for Prisoner’s Wife/Partner

I know, I know, resolutions. Seriously, people still do this? Well, yes. The top two resolutions most people make revolve around losing weight and money. Why should we be any different?

Here are the top two resolutions for prisoners’ wives/partners:

  1. Lose weight in your relationship – If you had a difficult year, suffered a few disappointments, or learned something hurtful. Its’ time to lose weight. Extra goo in your union is unhealthy. If you are still together, then you owe it to each other to not only lose the weight, but not regain it. This extra poundage will not only weigh the relationship down but eventually will affect your relationship health. If you still harbor feelings about what happened in 2011, you have approximately two days to hit the gym to lose what’s ailing you and start the new year with a zero on the relationship scale.
  2. Balance your relationship checkbook – We have a tendency to give and give and give and sacrifice and sacrifice and sacrifice. We are emotionally and sometimes financially overdrawn, trying to pay the hefty price of this relationship. You cannot continue to pay from an account that’s overdrawn. Eventually, the account must be closed which means a mental breakdown in your future. Balance your relationship checkbook. Decide what works and what doesn’t. Where are the deposits? Where are the withdrawals? Shift credits and deposits accordingly until you have more than enough to give.

For example:
Overcompensating – Withdrawal.
Stressed over things you can’t control – Withdrawal.
Paying for things can’t afford it – Withdrawal.
Living within your means – Deposit.
Communicating effectively – Deposit.
Supportive friends and family- Deposit.

By losing weight and balancing our checkbooks, we resolve to have  better relationships which ultimately will spill over to us becoming better people (we hope).


Happy New Year!

    I like the saints, but the lions cover, sohntmieg like 34-27I like spartans over Iowa as well. Iowa is dreadful. Big win for them over Wisc. I would go with the badgers over michigan if the game was at Wisc, but the fact that michigan is really strong with Hardaway and they are at home, I like them to take it. I am a bit worried though that Wisconsin has lost 2 of 3, so they will probably come in hungry for a win given they have been consistent in past.I’ll take the sixers over the pistons, pistons are garbage . I dont watch a lot of soccer lol .you guys should include NFL playoff games next week besides the hometown guys!

    Oh, my am I single mdined? I can be though not in the way you describe more obsessive compulsive, single mdined, lol. Story to finish? Then back off Jackson, I’m concentrating and even if the house catches on fire, you can bet I’m saving to the flash drive as I’m diving out the door!But on other levels, I am a more go with the flow kind of girl. I tried to be more single mdined in the past, but found it didn’t agree with me. What I love about life is how it works so differently for us all.You post reminds me how brilliant it is when we find our way. Wishing you continued joy ~April

Living your life when your partner is locked up means knowing what you can and can not control and making the most of it.
