New Years Resolutions Anyone?
How many of you are keeping up with your resolutions!?
It is now 12 days in to a new decade and I am curious... have you been keeping up with your New Years Resolutions? A new decade can mean many new beginnings! Whether it is shedding those last 10 pounds, vowing to spend more time with family/friends, promising to take at least one vacation this year, dontating to more charities, attending more fabulous galas, or (GASP) cutting back on your drinking habits (HA), those pesky resolutions can cause quite the stir in your daily routine. But how rewarding are they?
VERY! Think about it. You set a goal. You work every day towards accomplishing that goal. You accomplish that goal! What a self-esteem boost! A very simple equation, yet why do resolutions always fade into the background as the year progresses? I am proposing a new approach. Check yourself every month. Put a reminder on your blackberry or your gmail calender or wherever you keep your life in order, for the first every month. It should say something encouraging, yet harsh:
"GET OFF YOUR A$$ AND GO TO THE GYM TODAY, YOU DESERVE A SEXY NEW BODY!"
"SET A DATE TO HAVE LUNCH WITH YOUR SISTER-IN-LAW, IT WILL MAKE YOUR BROTHER HAPPY... EVEN THOUGH SHE NEEDS TO CONSULT YOU BEFORE WEARING ANOTHER HIDEOUS OUTFIT."
"OH, I'M SORRY, ARE YOU ENJOYING THIS WINTERY BLIZZARD? START PLANNING YOUR NEXT TRIP TO COSTA RICA TODAY!"
Instead of feeling overwhelmed and stressed about making these sometimes life altering resolutions immediately, you can space them out and hopefully make them last throughout the entire year! What are some of your New Years Resolutions? Share them with your fellow Middle Sisters and inspire those who have not set resolutions, to do something new and different!
