Remember the year when you vowed to stop biting your nails (1987)?

Remember the year when you vowed you would do your homework Friday afternoon/Saturday morning so that you wouldn’t feel the stress and anxiety of doing it on Sunday night (1992)?

Remember the year when you vowed you would use that Nutribullet everyday (2014)?

“Nobody puts Nutribullet in the corner!”

Remember the year when you vowed to stop being mean to people as a means of personal enjoyment (2015)?

This is from a WhatsApp Chat…from this morning 😦

Is not making New Year’s resolutions a sign of having given up, or a healthy way of not disappointing myself?

Maybe I just won’t make a specific resolution. Maybe I’ll just try harder at everything, and make incremental changes, rather than wholesale one-eightys. That appeals to both my competitive and lazy sides.

That’s good enough for me!

But I don’t want to end this year on a sad note, so I leave you with one of the happiest of holiday/end-of-year tunes I know!
