I’ve never been really good at New Year’s resolutions. I either make a list of a very few things that are ridiculously unattainable or so many things that I’d have to become independently wealthy so I could quit my job, and spend all my time accomplishing the “attainable” goals. This year I decided I wasn’t going to do either. No resolutions.
I thought about resolving to take a picture every day. I thought about pledging to lose a certain amount of weight. I was going to resolve to journal every day. I want to do all those things and more.
I’m not going to make any hard and fast rules for myself right now. I don’t know if I can take a picture every day. I might. I need to learn to use my new camera; taking a picture almost every day is going to be just as good as taking one every day. I need to lose weight; I’ll work on it most days. I can’t be a slave to the numbers. I’m sure I’ll get back to regular journaling when I need to.
I’m going to keep doing what I need to do. I’m going to try new things. I’m going to do some of them regularly. Others will fall by the wayside. I’ll celebrate some accomplishments and mourn other failures. I’m resolute in not making New Year’s resolutions.
Have you made any New Years’ resolutions? Is it something you do regularly or something you’re trying this year?
