An New Year = New Year's Resolutions

I love the start of an New Year? The start of an New Year, symbolizes to me "turning over a new leaf." An New Year gives you the chance to start over, whether it's losing weight, going back to school, starting your own business or just taking time out for yourself. What ever that change might be, remember that your change should be for the better. It should always be something to improve or enhance your lifestyle.

Alot of people see the start of the New Year, to make resolutions of things that they hope to change for the upcoming year. I personally call mine lifestyle changes, as they are things that I would like to change in my life. No matter what we may call them, how many of us stick to these resolutions or lifestyle changes? Instead of making these resolutions for the whole year try doing it for 3 months, setting your resolutions for an smaller timeframe may be easier to reach then setting them for an year. Whatever your resolution or lifestyle change may be, always remember even if you fall off you can always get back up and pickup where you left off.

Let the year 2009 be your year, where your resolutions are fulfilled. Find yourself an theme song that gets your creative gears moving (I personally love, I'm Coming Out-by Diana Ross) or create an slogan that drives you to fulfill your goals. These may sound corny but here are some of my own slogans for 2009 "On My Grind for 09," or how about "My Turn to Shine in 09." These are corny lines indeed...but I think you get the point ;-)

Until next time,


Pam

A great post!

I myself am a big fan of making resolutions, small or big, throughout the year, not just once a year.

So much so that myself and two friends created Pledgehammer on our free time. It provides an easy way to write resolutions down, have a concrete deadline and share with whoever you want to share them with. All of the above increases the chances of a resolution becoming a reality. It also has a charitable 'flipside' to it - if you can't stick to your resolution Pledgehammer asks you to donate money to charity. So whether you stick to your resolution or not, either way the world will be a little bit better.

Would love to hear if this helps people keep their resolutions.

Very nice Pam. I like the idea of taking those small steps. A year seems like a long time but three months is doable. I'm taking you up on your suggestion and adopting Patti La Belle's "New Attitude". I'm on my way.
