2012 is just over a week old now.
How many New Years Resolutions did you make?
How many have you already broken?
One? A few? All of them?
Why do people make resolutions anyway?
In hopes of bettering themselves? Aren't they happy the way they are?
If you aren't happy with yourself a resolution may not be the answer, since there is often a deeper cause.
We all know that most resolutions will be broken.
Many people make such fanciful resolutions that they couldn't possibly keep them.
Perhaps they do this because "it was never going to happen anyway"...so don't feel bad about breaking them.
I personally don't make New Years resolutions, I never have.
I've never seen any reason to.
If I'm going to make changes, I'll make them, resolution or not.
If I'm not inclined to make changes, then I won't be disappointing myself by breaking a resolution.
All of which makes those first few weeks or months of a new year quite stress free for me.
Just the way I like it.
