Resolutions Are Crap

1 Jan

What a year 2011 was. Never have I had such a year filled with change and second chances as this (almost) past year. I intended on detailing all of the change this past year saw, but I think I have already done that…via this blog. Besides, I intend to not revel in the past. It is said the happiest people live in the present, not the past, nor the future. It is because of this that I plan on not making awful New Years resolutions (besides, the “lose weight” resolution has been my resolution for the past 10 years and it should be quite evident that I am shit at resolutions…) I am going to not set myself up for failure yet again and just let what will be, be. If I end up finding the motivation that got lost somewhere between my fat ass and my big mouth and I start working out and I end up losing some weight, great. If not, I should embrace my curves and be glad I do not have to style around my protruding clavicles and hip bones.  The same goes for the recurrent resolution to not spend so much money. If I suddenly decide to not spend the last five dollars to my name before payday on earrings at Forever 21 because they only cost $2.80, then so be it. If I continue to do this, all I will have is a pretty sweet earring collection and no one can complain about that.

All those other resolutions that seem to be tossed around every year (you know the ones: I will stop eating custard-filled donuts every morning, I will spend more time with my crazy family, I will seek help for my porn addiction, I will stop to smell the roses, etc.) shouldn’t merely be goals we make for ourselves once a year. We should all seek to improve ourselves and enjoy every minute, every day, all year. This, “let’s make a bunch of goals that we never really meet because we are really just not happy with ourselves” bull gets old. Seek to love yourselves, faults (porn addiction) and all. If there is one thing I have learned this year is that we do not need to be perfect to be loved, respected, remembered.

So here is my vow to nix the resolutions this year. I just won’t do it. Don’t make a resolution to start living better, just start living better.
