Why I Do Not Make New Year’s Resolutions

I just finished reading Angela Rieck’s excellent post on New Year’s resolutions, and why she makes them. Angela is a colleague here at Hummingbird, and I greatly admire her, and her writing. But after many, many years on this earth, Father Time has proven to me that I am a wayward woman when it comes to making those resolutions.

Are there things I would like to do to make myself a better person? There are.

Resolve to date? I know I will not.
Resolve to cook more often? It has not yet happened, so it will not happen.
Rescue two more cats. Now that is one I would keep, except Lotus does not abide other cats.
Exercise more? That is a worthwhile goal.
Except my knees are in a state of repair.
Eat less chocolate? I cannot. I am an addict.

If I made goals, I have learned that I would suffer defeat time and time again.
And defeat hurts.
Re-reading this, I am compelled to admit that I am not a noble person.
Which is why I just ate a piece of chocolate.
