The thing about resolutions is that a person begins to feel as though they are setting themselves up for failure. How many times haven't you resolved to do something or become something or stop doing something else? How many times have you failed? For me, the resolutions are never very hard to make. I LOVE to make resolutions. I'm going to lose weight. I'm going to stick to my budget. I'm going to manage my time better. I set goals. I have a plan. I'm excited and energized by my new mindset.. my resolve. Yet here I am again, a short 12 days later (yes, that would be the first twelve days of the new year) feeling like a failure. I haven't dropped a pound. My checkbook is a wreck. I'm behind on laundry and the house is dusty. Right about now the giant is definately "reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed." I'm starting to miss the "voice of truth".
I realize most people can hold on to their new years resolutions a bit longer than I have! So...I'm just wondering, can you give me some advice?I could really use it. Right about now I feel as though I'm drowning when I should be walkin' on the water!!
