Why You Should Not Make a New Year's Resolution (and What to Do Instead)

Why You Should Not Make a New Year's Resolution (and What to Do Instead)

I'm not a big believer in New Year's Resolutions. I believe in every-single-day resolutions. That's right, folks! Every single day, every single minute, every single second is an opportunity to make a change. 

This is good news, because whenever you think you're "failing" at "keeping" your resolutions, you can always make a shift. You're not stuck in one spot. You're able to twist and turn and shimmy your way into success. (Okay, you don't have to shimmy. But I certainly will.) 

A Year in Review : 2016

A Year in Review : 2016

Oh, 2016. You are quite a blur to me. There's a lot to be said for this year. A lot of loss, fights, strife, and discord. I could focus on those things here, but there's enough of that out in the world right now. 

Of course, there are reasons to fear, to despair, and to wish to bury this year deep, deep down in the dirt. Those fears, despairs, and wishes are valid. So very valid. But, there will always be reasons for those reactions. Life serves up hardballs to us constantly. 

Maybe instead, we can think about what we have overcome this year. Maybe instead, we can think about what we can do to better the world next year. Small, significant shifts truly can make a difference. I love the quote by Ronald Reagan, "We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone."
