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.
