Goals. Resolutions. Depending on your perspective this can be a good thing or a bad thing.
I know you're all thinking let's get through Christmas right now, Hollie. But this new year, I'm going to accomplish stuff. And I want to be prepared. Last year, I didn't make a 'new years resolution' ON PURPOSE! Why? Because the resolutions I thought of in the past weren't thought through and didn't have momentum and didn't have a step by step plan. So I didn't achieve them.
Plus, I was against having one month a year that we update our goals. Why can't I come up with a resolution right now? For instance, I decided in April I wanted to start a blog. Not just think about it. Yeah, it took me awhile to start it...but early/mid May I went for it! I decided I wanted to eat healthier at lunch (but not bring it) and now I go to the grocery store and get soup or salad 3-4 days of the week. I wanted to stop dying my hair every eight weeks and now it's every sixteen-twenty. When there is a will, there Is a way! Cliche but true.
While you can make a goal at any time, I think a new year is a special time to make a change. And it's the cool thing to do ;) This year for me is to shop less, gym more (okay at all) and to take summer school (I am NOT a fan)
