This is it. We have reached the end of 2013. Have you made a New Year’s resolution yet? Do you swear you’ll keep it? I have not. Why? Because I have yet to keep one. Rather than disguise my failure I will openly announce that I have NO RESOLUTION!!! However, I have done some online research and found what many references claim to be the top five resolutions. They are, in no particular order, loose weight, quit smoking, spend more time with family, get organized, and save more money. The questions is, how do you keep a New Year’s resolution?
Doing anything “cold turkey” is often synonymous with failure. Try setting your New Year’s goal in three parts. For example, if you want to loose weight, try this: for the month of January, make healthy changes to your diet by adding more fruits, veggies and whole grains and eliminating most of the junk. In February, add some exercise. Don’t kill yourself. It can be playing Wii, or walking the dog at a slightly faster pace. Make it something you enjoy so it won’t seem like work. By March, your eating habits will be better and you’ll like how the exercise makes you feel so you can devote March to expanding on your resolution like cutting more junk and exercising more. The point being, slow and easy wins the race. The same goes for smoking, saving money or anything else.
The first decade of the new millennium was a doozy. The thought of what the next decade will bring is unlimited. I don’t know about you but I can’t wait. One thing I do know is that I’m going to be free any commitment I cannot maintain or keep, yet still be open to every possibility.
Wholesale Costume Club wishes you all the best with making and keeping your New Year’s resolution. Happy New Year 2014.
