New Year’s Resolutions – Yes? – No? – Maybe?

I trust everyone had a fabulous Christmas! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, a time for family and love.

Now that Christmas is behind us, there is the new year to look forward to. 2016 held happy days, sad days, and sometimes opportunities beyond belief. Whatever your 2016 held, be thankful and know that 2017 holds promises we can embrace as new harmonies with life.

I ask myself, why? Why make excessive resolutions when I know I’ll never fulfill them? I’d rather feel positive about an important short list, than a spreadsheet that becomes overwhelming.

Life does have a way of taking over, and maintaining sanity is key.


Know thyself! Okay, I do. I’ve had a lot of experience with past goals and know some New Year’s Resolutions simply don’t stick to my expectations.

Why? A new year means a new beginning, and new beginnings mean change. Change is a good thing, but not if you’re frustrated trying to reach goals that are too widespread. So aspire to make resolutions that are attainable, meaningful. When goals are realistic, they’re easier to follow. Whatever plan you have in mind, make it work for you.

So…this year I’m simply going to do what works even if those undertakings need a tweak here and there. Who doesn’t need to tweak? I do, and have a feeling some of you do too.

Happy New Year, everyone! I wish you love, butterflies and music.

    Yes! Tweaks! Not major things, just tweak your way towards a larger goal! It’s the old how do you walk a hundred miles? One step at a time. And I can promise you that there have been times when the best I could do was creep.But we have to keep moving forward. 🙂
