I am addicted to resolutions. I make a new goal each month, and promptly abandon them for a new and “improved’ resolution the next month. Over the course of last year, I resolved to be more adventurous, to drive less, to lose weight, to give up all plastic items, to start composting, to spend less, to bike more, to read more eco-friendly books, to only purchase eco-friendly clothing… the list could go on forever!
Some of the resolutions were very successful (Exhibit A, Compost bin!) while other resolutions were not so successful. (Exhibit B, Frozen Yogurt) But, I believe that the purpose of resolutions (New Year’s or otherwise) is to keep striving for a better you. Regardless of whether you stick to your guns and successfully turn your resolution into a new habit, or if you fall off the wagon and eat ice-cream on day 14 of your new diet, the point is that you are attempting to grow and change, and that needs to be applauded.
What are your New Year’s Resolutions?
