New Year's Resolution...

I am really not a fan of the whole idea of New Year's Resolutions, because honestly most of them do not get kept or you make such an unattainable goal, that your resolutions become unrealistic from the get go. Many people have the usual resolutions of getting in shape, losing weight, eating more healthy, stop smoking, drink less, be a better more hands on parent, go back to school, look for another job, yada, yada, yada...but why do we feel like we need to wipe our slate clean on January 1st? Why is that the "magical" date? Why is it when we want to make a change we think well I'll do it at the first of the year. Why can't April 7th or September 21st or December 15th be the "magical" date...instead, we do the well we will start over at the first of the year. I mean come on, the time to make a change is when you are ready and you know for some that "magical" day may be January 1st, but for most it isn't. Any day of the year can be that magical, slate wiped clean, lets start over date. So if your day does not happen to be January 1st or even in January at all then so be it. Make those life changes when you are ready to make them. So why am I even writing about New Year's resolutions then? Because if you choose to not make any this year, it doesn't make you a bad person, or less of a person because you didn't make any. That is all. :)
