I have been reading up on the act of making and keeping New Years Resolutions. It is actually quite sobering to me as I am kind of an optimist and most of the research lends to the fact that a very low percentage of people actually keep their resolutions. One of the sites actually stated research that gives a figure of only 8-12% of people that make resolutions actually keep them. How did they do this research first? Second I hope it wasn’t a government agency doing the research!
While I was looking the statistics up I found this quote-” Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account.”
~ Quotes on Funny New Years Resolutions by Oscar Wilde
Still being the optimist that I am (in spite of myself) I have chosen not to make resolutions, instead I will make PLANS. I don’t plan to bore you with them here this year .. I will however tell you if I make good on any of them in the coming months. I kind of mess up when I say them and then don’t do them. It sends me to a personal tailspin and mini crisis. I had quite a few of them in 2012 so not too much in the mood of repeating that behavior.. Yeah so maybe I did accomplish something!!
I do think that I may try to follow this one though.
I do wish all of you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR.. NEW DREAMS. WORTHY GOALS AND LOTS OF FUN..
Here’s to me and here’s to you in 2013!!!
