It’s almost the end of January, which means if you’ve made resolutions for this year, you’re already looking at your life and your choices and realizing maybe you need to accept that some things will never change.
Let’s take a look at some of the top resolutions and where they were doomed to fail.
Lose Weight/Get Fit/Eat Healthy Food
Breaking Point: New Years’ Day, when you ordered greasy pizza or burgers to cure your NYE hangover.
Save Money/Manage Debt
Breaking Point: Did you go to college or graduate school in the past five-ten years?
Get a Better Education
Get a Better Job
Breaking Point: When you remembered that the act of finding a new job is arduous and often months long and requires the skills and secrecy of a covert spy operation.
Take a Trip/Travel More
Breaking Point: WAIT I’M ACTUALLY DOING THIS ONE. However, my trip will make sure that I won’t do a lot of those other things, like save money, or eat healthy, or drink less.
Breaking Point: You realize you live in a major city and there is nothing that isn’t stressful.
Drink Less Alcohol
Breaking Point: First snowstorm of the year guarantees this is broken. Also how are you supposed to get through Awards Season?
Okay, maybe you have better luck with your resolutions than some people (i.e., me). Be well, drink more water, do what you need to do.
