So, we’re two days into 2009 and I’m still resolutionless. I mean, I have goals, like finishing my Master’s degree. But, it’s not really a resolution. Some people I know are doing a series of monthly resolutions. But, I’m not even sure I want to do that. I do have some “non-resolutions” that is, things that I am working towards, but that aren’t part of a decision to change with the new year. It isn’t a resolution for me to want to continue striving towards healthy eating and to keep my running up. I’m contstantly aware of my need to watch what I eat and be healthier. So, this isn’t a change, just a continuation. Just like finishing my Master’s degree. It’s a continuation of a process.

It often seems to me that resolutions are doomed to fail before they even begin. There’s too much pressure to do something every day and as soon as a day is missed it seems like the towel is thrown in. Which is part of why I don’t like resolutions. I don’t like setting myself up to fail. So, I’ll continue into 2009 with my non-resolutions.

About texancountess

I find myself in the calming roar of the sea, floating gently on the foam of the breaking waves. Blue. Green. Gray. The colors of the sea mark the boundaries of my soul. The tumbled glass finds its polish under the relentless pounding of the waves upon the shore. Thus am I. Rough transitioning to polish, refinement ever a process, finding my niche in the storms of life.
