I used to be the kind of person that made new years resolutions like this:
LOSE 100 POUNDS (This wouldn't be healthy for me, by the way. Just an example...)
And on January 1st I went for a run, January 2nd I drank a smoothie, and then on January 3rd I was too lazy to do anything. The resolution was broken and I couldn't ever take that back, so I quit trying.
This year I decided to take a different approach. I made goals like this:
Love as God loves.
Sleep well. Not too short, nor too long.
Instead of writing the resolution that required a 180 turn, it became more of a long term progression thing. If I miss a day of working out...no big deal. It's about the big picture. It's about how I will change between now and December 31st, 2013.
Honestly. I think that's what New Years Resolutions were meant to be in the first place.
In other news. I'm starting to like this whole photography instagram stuff. =D
