A New Year means new resolutions. Well not for me! This year I decided that I am not going to set resolutions. How crazy of me, right?! Today’s post is all about why I’m not setting New Year’s resolutions.
Why I’m Not Setting New Year’s Resolutions:
Huge Resolutions Feel Overwhelming // I get really overwhelmed with trying to determine what meaningful resolutions I want to change/set each year.
Goals > Resolutions // While resolutions are great, I like setting smaller more achievable goals each month. By doing smaller goals, I feel that I get more accomplished. Plus each month changes in everyone’s day-to-day life. Some months goals come easy while some months goals are harder to achieve. That’s why I want to focus on goals rather than focusing resolutions as a whole. Speaking of goals, my January goals are up!
I Never Follow Through With Them // Lets face it, I never follow through with them. When it comes to setting resolutions, I write them on a piece of paper January 1st, maybe look at them in February, and set them aside until December only to pull them out and realize I accomplished nothing. I know I’m not the only one that does this. When setting goals, I found that I am more likely to achieve a task when it’s something small that can be obtained in a month rather than a year. Each monthly goal can be a small goal that is working towards a large end of the year goal.
I Want To See What The Year Brings // 2017 is going to bring lots of changes. The biggest change is that I’m becoming a wife. I have no idea what to expect with married life, I’m sure nothing will change drastically as Brad and I have been together for 4.5 years and living together for 4 years. This year I really just want to sit back, enjoy life, and see where the new year takes me. Who knows what the next 12 months have in store for me.
Do you set resolutions?
If so, what’s your most important resolution that you want to accomplish?
