New Years Resolutions


I know, it’s January 14th…Why am I talking about New Years resolutions now? Well for a couple of reasons.

1. I really wanted to catch up on my holiday recap and talking about the year that just passed. 2012 was a big year in my life. There were some amazing things that happened last year and I wanted to remember them.

2. I am not a huge resolutions person. Truthfully, New Years has never been a big event in my family. Christmas? Huge! But not New Years. We’d be lucky to have anything planned and actually watch the clock hit midnight. Most years, we were in bed early. This year we ended up having low key plans which was perfect!

I know most people think of the new year as a fresh start. A brand new year to change something. But, not me. Any resolution that I did make in the past if asked, I wouldn’t even remember come April.

There are always the obvious resolutions; lose weight, eat healthy, save money, spend more time with family.

But to start this on January 1st versus December 31st seems a tad silly to me.

Throughout the year I have ideas. Something might happen in my life at that moment that makes me want to do something. So, I do it immediately instead of waiting until January 1st to start a goal.

When I got the idea to run a 5K in March, I signed up and started jogging.

When I wanted to eat healthier in September, I changed our meal plan to reflect that.

And, with the idea of a wedding to prepare for I had to CONSTATNLY remind myself to take time for myself and relax.

But none of those things were New Years resolutions. No, I don’t make a New Years Resolution. Instead, I made up my mind a long time ago that if something in my life doesn’t make me happy that I change it immediately. In that moment.

Make a significant change for the better immediately rather then wait at the starting line for the gun to go off.

So, in April (or whenever) when you may have fallen off the New Years Resolution band wagon, remember that any time of the year you can change your life. Don’t delay. Don’t wait for a specific day to make something in your life better. Start right away! Make the most of your life instead of waiting with un-satisfaction for it to happen.
