New Year’s resolutions? I don’t think so


It’s January 5th.

Do you know what that means?

Essentially if you haven’t already drafted up a list of New Year’s resolutions, your whole year is going to be a waste of time.

You had a chance to be better and you did nothing, absolutely nothing about it!

None of your friends’ helpful Facebook posts about grabbing the new year by the balls mattered to you. Do you care about getting fiscally and physically fit, or learning to code…or quilt. I don’t think so.

And I don’t blame you.

Resolutions. Suck.

They set us up to fail, put pressure on us and make us feel worse about ourselves if we don’t live up to their shiny promise.

Who needs that?

Instead, I prefer to see what the year brings. Hopefully that will include copious amounts of joy—or at least more good days than bad.

And wine.

And chocolate.

I think that’s all doable.

Low expectations. Don’t knock it.
