I make New Year's Resolutions. I have actually made countless resolutions. Most fall by the wayside by the first week in February. That's not unusual, I know. It happens to most of us. That's why this year, I have Resolution Revolt. It's not that I disagree with resolutions, it's just that I rarely keep them. Often times, because they are not measurable.
For instance, if my resolution is to lose weight, what does that mean? By when? How much? Do I treat myself if I reach my goal?You get the idea. So this year I am resolving to do it differently. I've learned that large leaps rarely work; but small tweaks often times do work!
So this year, I am making small tweaks. If I resolve to be more kind, the resolution should actually read that I will complete one act of kindness per week. I know that doesn't sound like much, but if I can keep that resolution, then I can expand on it. So rather than quitting in February, perhaps two months into the new year I will have increased my acts of kindness to three acts per week. And who knows, by summer maybe I'll be doing one kind act per day!
I don't know if it will work, but it's worth a shot. What's your New Year's "tweak"?
Wishing you Joy and Peace in the new year! All the best in 2019. Bring it on!
