I have never understood this.
Here's my thinking -
What about the month of March? That isn't a worthy enough month to use as a time to change your [insert bad habit, addiction, penchant for serial killing] ::here::?
You can't stop biting your nails ::waving:: in June or start being a nicer person in August? Why?
What is the problem with February? Do you have to hold out until the New Year to become more organized so you have a good 10 months to live in a disorganized chaos?
There is no magic to January first. You can find any day of any year to correct what you think is lacking in your life. A calendar should not dictate behavior.
Next weekend won't do? Try a random weekend. It works. Trust me.
I know it isn't all sparkly like January 1st - but anytime is good time to start anything that is going improve what you feel you need "fix", right?
See what I mean?
Why do we need a specific date to be healthier, stronger, better because someone, somewhere coined the phrase "New Year's Resolutions." It makes no sense.
Anyway I write this because I have been asked what my New Year's resolutions are.
I was happy to make it to 2011 - I guess I resolve to make it 2012 - but I didn't have the time to wait until January 1st to see that. It started quite a few weekends ago for me.
Besides, I have to admit, I wanted to get dressed in day clothes everyday in this New Year and here I sit on the 2nd, at 6 pm, in my pajamas.
Yep, I don't do resolutions. They screw up my "perfectness". hee.
