Hi everyone, I kinda disappeared for a while there didn’t I? Let’s just say I got really busy at work, but I am back now to take up a small fraction of your time, and to hopefully make you feel a little better while you’re reading my tidbits. And to those of you who do read all my little articles, I thank you very much.
Well, we finally made it to 2021, what we all have been waiting for since the start of 2020. So now I have a question for you.. How are your New Year’s resolutions going? I know some people who are still going strong and some who still haven’t started one of the things they said they were going to do. To each their own. I found that most resolutions fail by the second week of February. So, if you make it past that mark feel proud. But think of it this way, look at how many times you forget to grab your mask when you head into a store, and we’ve been doing that for most of 2020! It might take awhile to get in the groove of your new resolution, so don’t be too hard on yourself.
Also, while I was doing some research, I happened to find that 19% of Americans said their resolution for 2020 was to build more friendships. The irony in that from where we stand now is sad but also still hilarious.
Now note I have no research backing up this next sentence I am about to say, this is just something I have found to be true from my personal experience. If you tell people about your resolutions and they expect it from you then you’re more likely to stick to them. That is just from my own personal experience. So in that case, one of my resolutions is to write down the best thing about each day for the entire year. That way I can look back at it at the end of the year and see some of the good and happy moments I was lucky enough to experience. So, share some of your resolutions with others so that you have a support system backing you through, or so you can prove the people who say you can’t do it wrong, that’s always a fun thing to do.
Go out and enjoy this actual winter weather we are having and the fluffy white stuff that is almost a foreign object to us. Stay safe everyone and have a wonderful 2021!
