New Years Resolutions
Alright everybody ready to start 2018 off with a bang!!! Resolutions time. Are you prepared for this? Humph, well all I want to do is think of something to add or subtract that I have a better chance of actually completing this year. It’s not until Christmas is over that I realize the resolution is looming ahead.
How did this “resolution stuff” begin anyway? Well according to History.com – “The ancient Babylonians are said to have been the first people to make New Year’s resolutions, some 4,000 years ago. They made promises to the gods to pay their debts and return any objects they had borrowed. These promises could be considered the forerunners of our New Year’s resolutions.” So guys the tradition, with a few tweaks, has filtered across the ages to still be with us today.
After doing some research, I have found the most popular resolutions are:
- Get In Shape
- Travel more (Rena M, your name is on this one! )
- Enjoy Life to the Fullest
- Spend Less, Save More
- Spend more time with family and friends
- Get Organized
- Learn Something New
- Break my smart-phone addiction (Sorry, that ain’t happening this year!)
- Reduce stress (what, am I going to live in a cave!!)
- Get more sleep (hey, I think I’ve found a winner!!!!!!)
What ever you choose as your New Years Resolutions, give it your all. Congratulations ahead of time if you stay the course the whole year. If the bumps down the road cause you to falter or come to a complete stop, you still have earned a Congratulations for the effort.
I wish you all a safe and happy 2018!
