New Years Lists

“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.

    I try not to make new years resolutions because I know they’re only temporary but I do strive to become a better person each and everyday!!!

    Trying to better yourself one day at a time without making crazy huge goals works for me.
