Why I Don’t Make Resolutions

I’ve never been very good at resolutions. Every time I make them, I get to my birthday, and they’re gone. That means by late February, Whatever resolutions I’ve decided to make are long gone, and about 4 months later I remember that I was going to attempt something.

Often, my resolutions are something that ends up being unobtainable: writing 1000 words a day, losing 60 pounds, etc. So, I get discouraged early on, realizing how far behind I already am, and then I just give up all together.

I’ve considered doing that 100 things in 1000 days, which seems like a much more sustainable way to make changes and set goals. After all, I really want a decent digital camera this year, but I may not have the money for it. But obtaining one in the next nearly 3 years? Totally doable.


So, this is why I don’t make resolutions, but I do want to make a list of things I’d like to change this year, and work on. That’s another post though, because one of those changes is more posts.

  1. Hello! I’ve once again been assigned to view your lovely blog 🙂 Unforntunately, I never follow through with my resolutions either! It’s a horrible cycle. This year I’m hoping to make a list of things to improve on and take it slowly!
