LTP: Leave Your New Year’s Resolution Here

Last year, for the first time as an adult, I made a New Year’s resolution; I felt silly doing it, honestly. It always bothered me how people would make a big production about what they resolved to do in the coming year, only to abandon the idea by February. All that aside, I chose a resolution last year because I momentarily forgot who I was and decided to be happy about holiday traditions for reasons that we don’t need to go into here.

My resolution was to hang all of my clothes right-side-out in my closet. For as futile as that may seem to some, I was hanging things inside-out all the time and it was driving me nuts. This year, I’m going to up the ante and resolve to have all my clothes right-side- out, even in the dresser, which is kind of a big deal. So, tell me, dear readers, what resolutions are you making this year? Do you have a strategy for keeping them?

1. Write something–anything–every day. I work in sales, and I’m a bit of a workaholic, so it’s easy for me to get absorbed in or overwhelmed by work and make excuses for myself.

2. Comment on at least 1 or 2 things every day. I’m an avid reader of blogs, but I want to engage more with others instead of just lurking all the time.

It’s not really a New Year’s resolution, since I made it last week, but I have been procrastinating and stressing out about getting a website put together for months, so I have decided to renew my efforts and take up some of the offers of help I’ve received in January. It’s time to make this happen.
