What if you don't "achieve" any of your resolutions so nobly made the year before?
What if the last year outright sucked?
On New Year's Eve of 2008, I decided to look at all of my past journals to see what my New Year's Resolutions were. I went wayyy back.
And, I was saddened to see that all of my resolutions had something to do with three themes: lose weight, find a man, find a career I love.
At times, these resolutions were fulfilled but never for the long term.
So I decided for 2009, I would make fun resolutions like wear more dresses and drink out of pretty glasses. When 2010 rolled around, I felt accomplished because I did indeed show more leg and drink out of turquoise glasses! And wouldn't you know it, as a side bonus, I lost weight too, just by not making my resolution to lose weight.
For 2011, I have decided to not make a resolution but more of an action plan.
Because in order to resolve something, you must act.
My Action Plan for 2011 is to STAY IN THE MOMENT!
Go no further than what I am currently experiencing.!On Day Five of 2011, I have been mostly successful. I do find though, that I have to constantly remind myself to not go there.
But, I will continue to enforce this Action Plan . . . one moment at a time.
