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.
