Have you made a New Year’s resolution yet? Are you tired of hearing that question? Here’s a suggestion… stop making them. What’s the point anyway? You only make it a few days, a week, maybe a month if you are really disciplined about it, and then you break it, and you’re done. No sense in trying to continue, right?
It’s never made any sense to me. You kind of set yourself up to fail, and who wants to do that? You should be nicer to yourself.
Tell you what – instead of making a resolution this year, make a list of all the things you would like to change about your life. Is there something that keeps popping up in your day that’s really annoying? Find a way to minimize it or eliminate it. But deal with it! Problems don’t go away when you ignore them, they stick around. In fact, until you stand up to it, confront it and stare it down, it’s never going away.
Well, I never said this was going to be fun or easy… but it’s about making your life better. Making your life enjoyable. Taking control of your own happiness, because you are in charge of it, whether you realize it yet or not.
