What Really Happens With New Year’s Resolutions


Poor kitty. Just can’t stick with it.

Well, I no longer make New Year’s resolutions. I just take it one day at a time. How about you?

  1. No, I don't make them. Don't need to, as I set plenty of goals and challenges throughout the year. Far more fun that way. See that cat sitting on the couch, that's been me last two days only difference is, that my goal was to rest.

    Check that off the list. Woohoo. Now ... where's my double-butt waffle maker. I've got food to write.

    Muhahaha.

    1. Hahaha! I always love your quirky remarks, and your wonderfully upbeat attitude. I've no doubt you'll make 2015 a great year.

  3. Like so many resolutions that fail these have nothing you can measure.

    1. It's a good way to live, Margie. I used to make resolutions once upon a time, but that's all over and done with.

  6. I was very much like that cat but now have a resolution that I won't make one :-) I always think that they set you up to fail so I am quite happy just opening up a new calendar and setting goals for each month. Have a very Happy New Year xx

    1. One month at a time is a pretty good plan, too. And certainly more attainable. Happy New Year to you! xo

    1. At least you try, Wendy! And I'm sure you keep the ones that are truly important.

  8. I made a resolution to lose weight but it was just June. So far. 25 pounds down but up 2 in the month of December. The resolution continues... 20 more to go. I love this little cartoon. :-)

  10. I've never really got into the resolutions. Those who wait to the new year to start goals will never finish them.

    1. Works for me, Christine! Why change something that is going well?

  12. Same here. One day at a time. I have goals, but I don't set goals for the year as a whole. That's kinda ridiculous, I think.

    Have a great New Year's, Martha. xo

    1. I think so, too, Robyn. A whole year of goals is a little much. Happy New Year to you, too! xoxo

  13. I try to make resolutions, but far fewer than i used to make because i at least like to think i've grown wiser with age. :) You are the wise one though, in not making any. One day at a time is best. I think i'll take a cue from you this year!

    1. There is nothing wrong with making resolutions, Mary, as long as you are comfortable in doing so. I have 'ideas' of what I'd like to accomplish each year, but I don't force them. If it turns out to be more of a chore then eventually I lose interest in it. So...better to just take one day at a time and see where I end up!

  14. Yes, one day at a time is all I can handle anymore! Happy New Year!
