With 2021 behind us and February creeping upon us, we find that keeping that dreaded New Year’s resolution can be harder than we thought.
It was a cinch to make a promise in December. You can easily put your willpower to the test.
Can you make and keep a New Year’s resolution? This question has been around perpetually and it does get harder to answer.
Making a New Year’s resolution could be one way of saying something needed changed.
My neighbor had hoped to eat healthier foods, yet I see a pizza being delivered at least twice a week.
My friend Myrna swore to be more organized. Yesterday I stopped by her office in Linton and I couldn’t see the top of her desk.
I heard a woman in Walmart swear she was going to spend less money this year, yet her arms were loaded down with packages.
Were these people silly to make a New Year’s resolution they knew they couldn’t keep?
Maybe people make resolutions wanting to start the new year off with a clean slate.
For some people, maintaining the New Year’s resolution is an easy thing to do. For others, it is difficult.
I met a woman who made a New Year’s resolution that she and her child were going to read a new book each week. I hope they can keep up with their reading program.
At our house we kept our New Year’s resolution simple.
We will think about exercising more and if no one has touched that fruitcake by March, we will toss it out.
