New Years Resolutions (Thing of the past?)

So looking at social media lately…I was a bit surprised to see so many people…NOT declaring New Years Resolutions.  It seems like there is this unspoken stigma of setting “New Years Resolutions” and that if you do then chances are you will NOT keep up with them.  As a matter of fact, I believe I see more people talking about how they are setting any this year.  I think it’s interesting to see that happening.

I am firm believer that setting goals are important.  In order to know where you’re headed you must have destination.  I also believe in enjoying the ride though.  Goals are important but I think it’s more important that in this moment in time to be happy. To be thankful for all that you do have right now and for all of the things you are able to do right now.  I believe that being happy with yourself in the present can really pave a smooth path for you and your future goals.

  1. The only goal I have set is try to read more this year than I did last year. I haven’t really set a goal to read a certain number of books this year, I’ve just decided to make more time for myself and do something that I enjoy, such as reading. Did you make any resolutions for yourself this year, Sharon?

    • Thanks for your comment Maddie! The only resolution I set for myself is to be very selective when it comes to buying things. When it comes to food for example this year I have made a pact with my husband that if we pack our lunches everyday then on the weekend we can eat out. The things I buy or spend my money on should be things that are essentially good for me whether that would be related to health, professionalism, social, whatever that case what I purchase must have a purpose not just sound good. 🙂

  2. Setting goals isn’t a bad thing, but I think that setting new year’s resolutions can be. Setting goals should be something that you do each day or each week, not once per year. If the only goal that you’re setting all year long is a new year’s resolution, then you’re in trouble! I have never set a new year’s resolution, but I do set goals quite frequently.
