I hate New Year’s resolutions. i never seem to accomplish whatever grandiose ideas that I come up with. The question is always: What are you going to do different in the coming year? Honestly, I’ve been wanting to do some things differently for a while now but I haven’t. So what’s stopping me? Better yet, what about a new year invokes change in people that a new day doesn’t? Maybe its the celebration of it all. the confetti, the lights, the fireworks, the libations, the music. Auld Lang Syne. A song reflecting on the old and welcoming the new. A song sand on New Year’s Eve/Day.
I could delve further into the new year vs. new day thing but I will not. I will, however, join the mass I-will-do’ers and jot down my New Year’s resolutions. I know that they will echo resolutions of the past, thus pointing out my failures. However, this does not deter my asinine list. (IDK why people love lists but we do.)
In 2013, I will:
-finish a piece of writing: I know. I know. I write this every year and frankly I’m tired of hearing myself talk about it
-live healthier: this is another oldie but goodie. In my defense, though, this time I have help. My sister and I are participating in the #sexyshred challenge (exercise plus clean eating, Jan 3rd-31st) via twitter
-get organized: I REALLY need help with this
-start actively working toward my business ownership goal: this has got to be more than a dream. I have 20 years until retirement (God-willing), I would like my business up and running to retire to.
-cut the profanity…down? …a bit? ….fuck that! (lol! ok. ok. sorry. I had to get that one out!)
I saw a post on Tumblr that I think I’m going to add to my 2013 to do list:
“Start on January 1st with an empty jar. Throughout the year write the good things that happened to
you on little pieces of paper [and put them into the jar]. On December 31st open the jar and read all
the amazing things that happened to you that year.”
I’m trying to try to stay focused… pray for me.
