A Little Help With New Years Resolutions
New Years resolutions.
Goals for a perfect world.
A fresh new start.
Most of my life I've poo-pooed New Years resolutions. To even attempt to keep a goal for an entire year just seemed entirely unrealistic to me. What's the point in making lofty goals that I know I'll forget about in a matter of days? That's how I've always felt about them.
But these past couple of years I've found myself coming around to the idea of making goals for a fresh new year. Of course on some level I know I won't meet them 100%. That's just life. Unexpected things come up. But I don't think that means I should give up on making goals all together.
So, for perhaps the first time in my life, a couple of days ago I took a minute to sit down by myself in a quiet corner and write out a few of my goals for the new year. They're basic things. Things that I can actually accomplish. Specific things that I could actually check off my list. Because abstract goals are good to keep in mind, but I think specific goals are much more satisfying to put down on paper.
What about you? Are you into making New Years resolutions? Or are you bah humbug about them like I used to be?
This next week I'm going to be sharing some helpful links and information that I hope will be helpful to you as you plan and carry out working on your own New Years resolutions. I've got a couple of fun guest posts lined up to help me out too. So you're all in for a treat!
Have a great time celebrating tonight!
See you back here next week for some fun ideas to help out with your New Years resolutions!
