I’m not fond of resolutions or had really committed to making a resolution. I like the idea of goals and planning, I’m someone who likes to make plans, but this stuff has always been something I’ve failed at. I rather think of it as ‘making a commitment and following through.’
So with it being the new year and all, I’ve opted to read a lot of what people had to say about making resolutions and what you should do instead of making resolutions. I took the time to do this because there are some changes/improvements that I need to make for myself. And honestly, I’m just not sure how to get my freakin’ butt in gear with this stuff.
So, here’s what I’ve read:
Jon Acuff’s 52 & 7
I’ve written in my journal about this. I’m committed to this idea, because it’s a
great way to keep what you like and don’t like. This is realistic for me.

5 Ways to Slow Down in 2013 via Relevant Magazine
After living in France, I realized how I tend to not slow down. Some days I get
flashbacks of rushing into the kitchen and being asked why I’m moving so fast
in the morning and I responded with how I tend to run late and I need to get to
my day and the woman I lived with simply said, “the whole world runs late! stop!”
My French family certainly shared some day to day wisdom with me.

Do you remember? – Seth Godin
Love this. Resolutions rarely work, so take inventory. I should be able to take an
inventory on life, especially if I do that for my vegan pantry to plan for my bulk shopping.
Have you read anything about resolutions and goals for the new year that has inspired you?
Do you have a plan?
HAPPY (belated) NEW YEAR!
