And just like that another year is on its way and it is time for the dreaded New Year’s Resolutions. It is really hard to believe that we are here again already. What will it be this year?
Take your pick…make more money, spend more time with family, lose weight, work out, quit smoking, get healthy, stay healthy, be a better person, volunteer more…the list continues. Every year it starts the same way. We have a renewed sense of our selves. We are committed to change and this WILL BE the YEAR! We will succeed.
I don’t know how it works out for the rest of you, but for me no matter how determined I am at the beginning, no matter how much I want to stick with it and keep going somewhere around March or April I start to revert back to my old self. It doesn’t happen overnight. It happens so slowly I almost don’t even notice it until one day I remember what my resolutions were and slam my head into hands because once again I did not accomplish my goal and not only that…I even stopped noticing I was not accomplishing my goal. Not good, just plain not good.
This year, I am going to pick an easy one. Well, maybe not “easy”, but I am going to lower my resolution-expectations just a bit and see how that works out for me. Maybe the problem isn’t my inability to change; maybe the problem is that my expectations are too high. (Yes, this is definitely it…I am on to something now!)
Feel free to join me in lowering your expectations just a little, not too much, I mean we still want to strive to better ourselves, but maybe expecting to go from lounging on the sofa to running a 5k in a few weeks is pushing it. Maybe I will just strive to go from loving my sofa to, “this 10 minute walk is not excruciatingly painful”…seems like a fair place to start anyway.
