New Year's Resolutions

New Year's resolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "A New Year's resolution is a commitment that an individual makes to a project or the reforming of a habit, often a lifestyle change that is generally interpreted as advantageous. The name comes from the fact that these commitments normally go into effect from New Year's Day. Some examples include resolutions to donate to the poor more often, to become more assertive, or to become more environmentally responsible."

But do people actually keep their resolutions? According to many tweets I have received yesterday and today, many have already broken at least one of their resolutions. I personally don't like "resolutions", I prefer the term "Goals" for the New Year. If I don't meet a goal, I am disappointed but don't feel as if I have failed by not keeping a resolution.

Did you make resolutions or did you make goals? And if you made resolutions, have you broken any already?

I just think about what I can do to make me a better person... resolutions make me nervous!

Me too, what Bev said. I seem to always think about that at the beginning of each year. Of course, I always say I need to get in shape too. But seems like I find myself saying that EVERY day of the year.

You're so right. I always have goals for myself, but they are there regardless of what time of year it is. I do think the fresh start of a New Year inspires us to get back on track! I have been trying to be a better woman overall. 2 steps forward, 1 step back:)

Now, Jenn...I do like resolutions! But I learned that they truly had to be something very personal to me and I do try to keep them. Try, try, try...
