New Years Not So Resolutions

As I stated last year, I’m not really one to hop on heavily for the New Years Resolutions deal. Oh geez, between that not being an elf on the shelfer, does that make me seem like a grump?

Or perhaps a little squidward-esque? Yes, you better believe most things around this house are related to Spongebob. And yes, I have no problem being a Squidward.

I mean I think resolutions are great. It may be a little selfish, but I also can’t help but love the influx of great fitness goodies available at the stores at the beginning of the year! :D

I digress. I think resolutions can be life changing for people – if you stick with them. I mean come on people, lets look at the definition of resolution:

res·o·lu·tion

[rez-uh-loo-shuhn] noun

decision or determination; a resolve: to make a firm resolution to do something.

Pretty sure there is no mention of abandon all hope after 3 weeks if things aren’t going your way. I think people get lost on the resolve portion. Do people feel pressured into choosing a resolution just because it’s a new year? How about sticking with something you were working on last year? I mean crap, all your efforts from the past year aren’t instantly vaporized when the clock hits midnight right?

Resolve.

And as I’m typing this, its kinda dawning on me that I may have discovered my one little word for 2014. (Originally I had planned ‘boobies’ as my one word, but this works too.)

Resolve.

Whatever I want to work on, or want to improve for myself, my family, my health, or any aspect of my life – this year I resolve to keep going. Hey that was easy enough right? And no pressure there. A New Year’s resolution to be my best and keep going. That’s such a keeper I don’t even know if I’d ever have to choose a one little word again. Even if boobies is awful tempting.

I do have a fitness and workout related stuff to share with you guys in the next few days. There’s definitely going to be some resolve reiterated in that post for sure!

I also got an itch to create some printable cards for you. These happen to coordinate to my Year In Retrospect Collection. You can download them here at flsdesigns.com.

So how about you? Do you choose resolutions? Or do you pick one little word?
