I've always seen the whole "12 new resolutions for the new year" as simply a tradition. I'm not sure if many share this tradition, but with my family right at midnight when the clock marks the new year, we eat 12 grapes. Each grape represents one of our new resolutions of the new year. Usually, by the end of the first week of January I already forgot what my resolutions were. For that reason I feel like there just a tradition with no real substance. Last night after work, I was thinking of approaching the whole thing in a completely different way. What if I focused on one resolution at a time? For example, this month I'm focusing on reading 10 pages of a book every single day. Next month I want to focus on worrying less. My goal is that by the time I start on my second resolution, the first one will have become a positive habit in my life. I want to slowly create healthy habits around the 12 different resolutions that I was 100% sure I wasn't going to accomplish. I'll keep ya'll updated!
