This time of the year, it’s in Vougue to join all the others in bullying the poor New Year’s Resolutions. I mean think about it, the reason they’re trashing them is because of THEM not the RESOLUTION!!!
Do the people who talk about resolutions being dumb or useless or ridiculous even really know what the meaning of a Resolution is? Well here ya go…..
1. The state or quality of being resolute; firm determination
What in the world could be wrong with being resolute!?!
(Just in case we’re a bit shaky on exactly was resolute means…
A. firm in purpose or belief; steadfast) Can you imagine being firm in your purpose to make your life better? I mean the gall of those “resolutes!” (Sarcasm…much, much sarcasm
In other words, making a resolution is simply a way to tell yourself to make a commitment to do something to make your life better.
The success or failure has nothing to do with the resolution, it has everything to do with us! We make resolutions every single day we’re alive. Some we keep and some we don’t. The only difference is that we call the decisions and we don’t surround them with the kind of pressure we surround these with.
It’s 2019 and you are old enough and accomplished enough to know how to access this blog. To me, that means you’re old enough and accomplished enough to decide on 1 or 2 things to make your life better. ONLY 1 OR 2! Be smart about them. I always suggest to MAKE THEM SMALL BUT IMPORTANT. Make one resolution at a time and then once you accomplish it, CONGRATULATE YOURSELF, write your success down in a journal or post it on the refrigerator and then move on to your next.
instead of bullying, maybe their first resolution should be to quit blaming others and look inward instead. I guess if we all do that more in 2019, it will turn out to be quite an amazing year.
