When you sit down and look at the list you created for last year’s resolutions, how many of them did you keep? Last year I just had 7 things I wanted:
- To work on me and the goals I set for myself.
- Remain single
- Make great glass fusion pieces
- Lose 30 pounds
- Keep negativity away from my personal space.
- Cut sugar out of my tea
- Stop meeting JERKS
We all make some sort of promises to ourselves, this isn’t new. Hell, it’s more of a tradition or ritual at this point than something we really seriously.
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”-Albert Einstein
What Einstein is saying is we can’t continue doing the same thing in hopes of getting a different result. If you did, maybe you should be content with failure.
So this year I think I will kick resolutions to the curb. Looking back on my year it wasn’t all horrible. It was actually pretty great. I didn’t lose 30 pounds, but I did lose weight. My goal will be to work out more than twice a week. Even if that means having a gym bag locked away in the truck of my car. I’ll stop worrying about where I thought I would be at this point in life and feel great about the progress I’m making every day. Not everyone reached their dream last year, but I did.
Well good luck to me having a better 2014 than 2013
