Resolutions?

Why is it only at New Years that we think of bettering ourselves?
Should all hopes of learning new talents, trying to be thinner, having less debt, being nicer, be limited to once a year?
Aren't most resolutions broken/quietly forgotten within the first few weeks of making them?
I married Mary Poppins. "Practically perfect in every way".
Shh...don't tell him.
He can and does do everything he sets his mind to.
So I sit here, on Jan 2nd no less, doubting my own ability to make and keep resolutions.
I am exceptionally good at procrastinating!
Can I ever be as good as the man I married?
I'm still toying with the idea of making a project 365 of my year.
Thinking about all kinds of thing I could resolve to do this new year.
I think I could resolve to yell less
I however don't think I yell. I grew up with 3 sisters. Read lots of noise (talking).
You had to speak loudest to be the one whose voice was heard.
Can you imagine 4 teenage girls under one roof?
I also did theater and am very good and projecting!
Shall I resolve to
Be kinder
Blog more
Blog less
Save more/spend less
Try to enjoy cooking dinner for my family
Work on not being selfish
Use less sarcasm
Finish my growing pile of unfinished projects

Hmm....
I think I'll start tomorrow

Yes. I say procrastinate more. You already run circles around me, although procrastination is something we learned from our mother. You know, "If it wasn't for the last minute, nothing would get done."

My New Year's resolution from years ago was to not make any more New Year's resolutions. This frees me to make them throughout the year.
I think as long as you're trying to improve, it matters not when you start, just that you keep trying. And yes, there's always tomorrow.

Thanks for making me NOT feel guilty about having no resolutions to start my year. I'll make them when I'm ready to actually put effort into them.
