New Year New You

New Year – New You?

One of the morning T.V. shows is using the term New Year, New You as their tag line. The first time I heard this, I thought, what? Really? Just because it’s the beginning of the year, why do we have to start off like it’s a new page, a new life, a new beginning?

I’m so sick of that thinking. I don’t like to put that kind of pressure on myself. Why are we so programmed to think that on January 1st we must go on a diet, start a new workout routine, put money in savings, get to bed on time, go to the doctor, get our teeth whitened, etc, etc. I really don’t like New Years resolutions. They never work.

But, I do like goals they act as a guideline, so that we have direction. But resolutions are a recipe for failure.

So please set your yearly goals. The good news is that you don’t have to achieve them today, you have all year.

    I’m so glad you make the distinction between resolutions (I should) and goals (here’s the plan). In this challenging time, I’m finding it much easier to accomplish what I need to do when I recognize that the process of reaching my goals is an incremental one. Flexibility is crucial in this time of great fluctuation and change. It may be that having a rigid “to do” list might actually make it harder to see new directions and opportunities.

      gossip doesn’t always have to be bad it can be about cbeels and stuff. I think gossiping about other people is hurtful but i use talking about celeb gossip to start a conversation sometimes when i don’t really know what else to so guess ya gossip does make a bond in a way
