I fail every year at actually following through with my New Year’s Resolution. The first few weeks I don’t do too bad. Maybe by the end of January, I am fumbling to find some sort of new rhythm. But by March… “What was my New Year’s Resolution again?”
It doesn’t seem to matter if it is “Lose 10 lbs”; “Be a more patient person”; “Pray more often”; “Give more of my time”, “Stop procrastinating”. A year may seem to fly by, but 365 days gives me ample time to fall off the tracks! I sometimes feel like a failure but mostly I think “Oh good! Now I have something to make a resolution about next year!” and I carry on doing things the exact same way I have always done and waiting until January 1 of the next year to try changing something again.
Wikipedia states that a resolution is a “tradition in which a person resolves to change an undesired trait or behaviour.” Why do we wait for a New Year to make a resolution? Why not a New Month, a New Week, a New Day's Resolution?
