Today’s topic is: What I Think of New Year’s Resolutions
I honestly make “resolutions” pretty regularly, throughout the year. I don’t think of them as resolutions, per se, but as goals. A road map to where I want to go. If I can’t see where I want to go, then how will I ever get there? I actually tend to write my stories the same way… I usually write a few chapters, and then I write the end. Because then I know where I’m heading. The characters and plot may end up making a few unexpected detours, but they’ll still end up getting to where they were headed.
Resolutions are the same thing. I like goals. I have a vision board. I make to do lists. I can’t go through life drifting from place to place, I’m a planner. A “doer”. Get ‘er done. And I can’t do those things without a plan. That said, resolutions are not immutable. If I don’t end up doing them by the end of the year (or month or week or whatever date I’ve set), the world does not come crashing down. I just pull myself up by my bootstraps, put on my big girl panties and try again or I look at that goal and decide if it’s what I actually want or need in my life. And then I move on.
