A Writer’s New Years Resolution

New years resolutions are an annual joke. We trip up so often that we might as well kick the year off by asking “what sort of good intentions can I fail at this year?”

Putting pessimism aside, whether we fail or not depends on our mindsets as we start the year.

I personally want to have good morning habits. From the stereotypical resolution of exercising, to writing my novel and reading the Bible with my morning tea. But instead of assuming that I’m going to start off the bat with a perfectly formed habit, my resolution is simply to build upward. Failure is acceptable as long as I pick myself up, forgive myself for failing, and start again.

As my husband commented, life shouldn’t get in the way of your resolutions because your good habits should be a part of life.

What are your resolutions? How are you going to keep them?
