Resolutions get a bad rap

Published by Lori Pickert on December 30, 2011 at 02:43 PM

It's that time of year when people either announce their resolutions for the new year, keep quiet and mull them over alone, or loudly denounce having them at all.

Personally, I am pro-resolution. After all, how often do we see meaningful change where the first step wasn't a firm resolve to see that change occur?

In that spirit:

Resolution 1: It's not all or nothing.

Resolution 2: Break it down.

Resolution 3: Take real baby steps.

Resolution 4: Use the upward spiral.

Resolution 5: Quit.

I hate the idea of resolutions for those reasons alone! Of course, I'm certainly not loud about it. I just decided I won't commit to anything unless it is something I feel very strongly about...and then, I don't have to wait to do it at the beginning of the year!

That doesn't mean I won't ever do it, because your right about throwing it all out...resolving not to resolve anything won't ever get me anywhere...will it?! :)
