“This year is going to be different”. That’s what we tell ourselves with our New Year’s resolutions. We start with all the things we aren’t going to do; eat too much chocolate, gossip, drink too much, smoke (unless drinking), date that guy or girl that’s not good for me etc. etc. then the I will; exercise more, find a new job, save money, be happier, cut carbs, cut fats, run a marathon etc. etc.
By the time the lists are complete, we need a rest! One good last day on the couch in front of the tv with a bag of favorite chips and a movie with our favorite candy (a full bag or box of course). “I’ll start tomorrow,”. But we all know, tomorrow never comes. So, after a few days of attempting to try these suggestions, we fold it up for next year. Friends are calling, it’s time to meet for a night out!
Before I had kids, this was me every year. Luckily for all of us I no longer try to quit stuff, not much left to quit, I don’t have the highs or low of dating (I married my date) so now it’s just another wonderful day in a New Year.
