No Resolutions Needed

Here's a poll from OnSugar blog Rantings of a Single Girl.

Every new year, I make a list of resolutions. And guess what? I never keep them.

I always say I am going to lose weight. Or organize my closet. Or find a better paying job. Did I do any of those things in 2009? I guess you could say a little, but I certainly wouldn't check them off my list. I lost a little weight. I gave some old clothes to charity. While I didn't find a better paying job, I did manage to score a decent raise.

Just because I didn't 100 percent achieve my resolutions doesn't mean 2009 was a bad year. It was actually a pretty good year. Sure it had some ups and downs, but what year doesn't? So here at the end of the year, the only resolution I'm making is not to make any resolutions. This year, I am just going to ride the wave and see what happens. Sure, I'm going to keep trying to improve my life, but overall, I'm pretty happy with things. No resolutions needed.

So what about you? Is this the year you resolve to quit resolving?

I use to make them but would never stick to them, so I stopped making them and started focusing on making good decisions and making positive life choices everyday.

I made some life change resolutions for 2009 and ACCOMPLISHED them!!! I'm so proud of myself and so happy with the things I've made for myself in 2009, so my 2010 resolution is simple -- wear red lipstick and buy more jewelry.

If I make resolutions I end up giving up after a week. To remedy this, I set goals and put them to action sometime that's NOT January first, and usually that helps. And I never, ever refer to them as resolutions. That word is jinxed for me.

I agree with Florida Snow. I don't need to wait for the new years to change things that I'm unhappy about; I'll just do it regardless the date.

I agree to some extent. While it's good that people evaluate what changes they want to make in their life around New Years, how often do you hear people talking about their New Years resolutions in June? Or September?

If I resolve everything this year I'll have nothing to do next year.

I like resolutions. I like beginning the year with the thought that the upcoming year is going to be even better than the last because I'm finally doing x, y or z... And while I've yet to stick to a new year's resolution, I get closer to my goal because from time to time I remember those resolutions and actually take action. It might not as many times as I wanted, but it's still an improvement!

I've always been of the philosophy that if there needs to be a change in your life, change it as soon as possible! Don't wait for a specific date.
