... did you keep working at these until you accomplished what you set out to do?

Are you like a huge number of people around the world who make a resolution only to abandon it after a few weeks?

Have you ever pause to see why these goals or resolutions were forgotten or were let go of? What will you change this year so that you can continue working on your resolutions for a longer time this year?

I have found that resolutions never seem to last so I just don't make them! LOL At least I don't make year-long resolutions. I try mine on day or one week at a time! Much easier to "swallow" and much more likely to result in a change of habit, at least for me... and no guilt!

I don't make resolutions or set goals. I used to and they just didn't pan out and I felt guilty, so I stopped. :)

I kept my resolution to eat healthier but the exercise one fell by the wayside as did the one about folding the laundry as soon as it comes out of the dryer.

Carol, I think making them one day or one week at a time is probably the wisest and most effective way of doing it.

Molly, for a very long time I didn't make any resolutions or goals, either.

That's great that you have been able to eat healthier, Rebekah. Congratulations - consistently cooking and eating healthy isn't always easy. Has it become a habit by now for you and your family?
