New Years Resolutions – The Journey Into 2013

New Years Resolutions

Should you make Resolutions for the New Year or not?  I didn’t last year and had one of the most frustrating years of my life.  To me “Resolutions” are a list of items you want to accomplish over the next year.  They are not written in stone.  Be reasonable when you write them.  Don’t write something down just because someone else thinks you should.

Resolutions should be fluid, ever changing just like your life.  If you know by February some of them aren’t working, cross them out and add new goals.  This is a guide line for the next year.

These are your resolutions not someone else’s.  Don’t add something to your list like “Loose 10 pounds” just because your friend did.  Loosing weight shouldn’t be about an arbitrary number it should be about eating healthier, smaller portions.  On my 2013 Goal list I have “Eat Healthy”.

Don’t make a list of Resolutions you know you won’t keep, make obtainable Goals instead and change them as the year evolves.

Happy New Year!

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.
