2013 - The Year of Non-resolutions

For better or worse, every year I like to make my resolutions for the New Year. I approach the New Year with excitement and hope, as well as enthusiasm for the work to be done - whether on the fitness front, the writing front, professional front or anything else. But so does every else - for better or for worse.

Every year I, along with thousands of other people, make some of these resolutions and goals and don't make others. It's an old story, probably as old as time itself.

Well, this year I'm changing it up for myself. I decided that this New Year's I'm not going to make resolutions. Now, it doesn't mean that I'm not looking forward to completing old projects, working on new ones, cultivating great habits and working on general self-development. The next year (2013) is going to be a year of more hope and excitement for me than in a long time, as a matter of fact. Between hubby and I buying a new house, working on various writing projects (individually and with my writing partner), and working on some professional goals, I'm hoping for a great year! I will work hard and try to bring all my goals to fruition. I will not, however, beat myself up anymore if some of those goals are not quiet at the fruition stage by the end of the year. I will just keep working hard the year after that. And after that. Well, you get the point.

Whether you're making resolutions or not this year, I wish each and every one of you out there a great New Year. May all your dreams come true, may it be smooth sailing (even with hard work) for you to reach all your goals. As long as the journey towards those goals makes you happy.

Here's to a great New Year, 2013!


  1. I completely understand. My resolutions last year were a bust. But I'm going to make new ones this year and stick to them! I like making resolutions, it helps me focus. But I need accountability! LOL!

    1. Oh, don't misunderstand me, I'm definitely holding myself accountable for a number of goals! ;) And I'm hoping to achieve more than last year, so I have my work cut out for me.
      I'm sure that you will achieve all your resolutions, Heather! :)

  2. I find when I set "goals" for myself they work much better than "resolutions," because I condition myself all year long to complete "goals." Thanks for the tidings and I hope you have a Happy New Year's yourself!! :)

    1. That's a great way to look at this. I definitely have lots of goals, I'm just not calling them "resolutions" this year :D
