Firstly, Happy New Year!
What ever you chose to do last night there’s almost one thing for certain, it involved a resolution. A drunken commitment that was spoken with a slur and went something like, “this year I’m going to bla bla bla……” I don’t think you’re alone. I myself have made many commitments only to fail miserably. You see it all the time. On the first day of the year there are people out jogging in the streets or buying gym memberships or going through their homes searching for stuff they haven’t used because it’s time to get rid of the clutter and maybe even downsize.
I’m one of the guilty who have made countless promises to myself at the beginning of the year and watched them slowly die. Where do all those good intentions go? Is there a place where they all meet in February and debrief? I can picture it now. “I was going to be her healthy eating resolution but she dumped me for a bag of crisps and a bar of chocolate.” It’s really sad.
So, I guess if you’ve already blurted out to your friends what your intentions for 2023 are, it’s going to come back to haunt you over the coming weeks but if you haven’t, now’s the time to ponder what you might like to change in your life. It might be nothing, you might be perfect but if not, before committing, weigh up the difficulties and make sure you can stick it out.
I really don’t have any resolutions. Like I said earlier, I’m a failure. But who knows, I might come up with something such as blogging more or taking up running again. Before I do there’s one thing I’m going to do before I commit and that’s think!
