New Years Resolutions?

4 So, we're half way through January. How ya doing on those New Years Resolutions?

Each time a new year rolls around you hear about people making new goals. Being a better person, paying off debt, joining a gym to lose that last 10 (or 20) pounds.

But I always wonder. Why do people wait till the beginning of a new year to make improvements? I supposes its that new beginning, start fresh philosophy?

This year I made some. I don't normally do so. Maybe it's all this blog reading I'm doing now and you all have gotten me inspired. But honestly, if I think something needs to be done, I don't wait until the beginning of a new year. I just try to make that change right then and there.

If I think I should eat more vegetables and fruits each day, why wait till January 1? If I think I should pay off my debt or loose weight, why wait till January 1?

Do people have a higher success rate of accomplishing these goals if they wait till January 1?

This is an original DC Metro Moms Post. When not contemplating when Robin should start new goals she can be found writing at MyLifeAsItIs.
