It is that time of the year. The time when we look back on the past year, and at the same time, look forward to the coming year. Some people always make resolutions at the beginning of the year, and others just go with the flow. I was reading that 95% of all resolutions fail. That means that 5% make the cut. That is great! That just means we need to have a BUNCH of resolutions, and the odds that at least one will “stick” is pretty good. Here is a list of some of the top resolutions to help you with your selections.
Lose Weight/Eat Healthy – Yep, it is on my list, how about you? Start a food journal to help keep track of what you eat.
Get Fit – Yep, that on my list. I am starting slow and so should you.
Save Money/Pay Off Debt – Of course it is on my list. A really easy way to save money is to never spend a $1.00 or a $5.00 bill. At the end of each day, empty your 1’s and 5’s into drawer. They really add up at the end of the year. To pay off debt, make sure you pay the most money on the accounts that charge the most interest.
Religion – Yep! Go to church more, study more, pray more.
Quit Smoking – Nope, never have.
Quit Drinking – Nope.
Spend More Time With Family – Not on my list, but I would love to spend more time with loved ones.
Learn to Chill – Take a deep breath. Relax. Meditate. Live in the moment.
Get Organized – Oh my goodness, YES! There is nothing organized about me. I do hang my clothes in color order in my closet, but I don’t think that counts as organization.
Volunteer- Help others/Pay it Forward – There is lots you can do in this area. Hospitals, Nursing homes, Animal Shelters, and Organizations like GFWC Women’s Clubs.
How about resolutions that aren’t on the “main” list.
Compliment a stranger
Call an elderly person
Walk more, drive less
Leave a big tip at a restaurant
Have more patience
Call a friend you’ve lost contact with
Read more books
And the most important New Year’s Resolution of them all:
I will read the “50 is not old” blog everyday, and tell all my friends about it!!!
I know most of you thought you would see my New Year’s Eve outfit today. I did buy one, but I don’t know if I will go anywhere. But, if I do go out, here is what I will wear. If I don’t go out, here and here is what I will wear. Hahaha
I want to wish each of you a Happy New Year!!! Have fun and be safe. Don’t drink and drive.
I look forward to spending 2016 with you!!!
