Happy New Year blogfriends!!!
A lot of people talk about resolutions this time of year. For me, the very mention of the words New Year's Resolution makes my skin crawl and I feel the need to break out my rag doll and hide in a corner sucking my thumb me anxious. But that's just me. I am thrilled for people that can come up with a list of things they want to do/change/accomplish/try/experience/etc throughout the year and actually stick to it. That's the hard part. The "stick-to-it-iveness" part of resolutions. I haven't made a New Year's Resolution for literally, well, years. Why? Because it's the immense crushing sense of failure I feel when I don't stick to them. I always resolve to lose weight. To be more organized. To do this or that or try something new. I do okay for about 3 weeks and then it all goes to hell in a handbasket. And I feel like shit about it. So...I resolved years ago to not make any more New Year's resolutions. This, my friends, is one resolution I have actually stuck to! :)
A friend and I were talking the other night and she said she is declaring 2010 her "Year of/for Me". The more I got to thinking about it, the more I love the idea.
I'm jumping on the bandwagon and claiming 2010 as my "Year of Self". I have a reason for calling it that, and that will be explained in a later post.
So...do you make New Year's Resolutions? Why or why not? If you do, what were/are some of yours for 2010?
