I have to admit, like Paul, I didn't set any resolutions either. It's a great concept; acknowledging room for growth, improvement and/or implementing positives in our lives in the form of a goal is a terrific theory. But, when you struggle with insecurities and vulnerability like myself, and I'm sure many others, it just creates another stressor and sets some of us up for more feelings of failure and disappointment, adding to our already very apparent feelings of insecurity. Growth; personal, emotional, psychological, physical, professional, financial, etc., is something that I think about and maybe even dwell on, on a daily basis. These are things that I long to improve regularly. I guess I feel like, if I had the answers on January 1st how to accomplish these goals, than it is something I should have been working on in the year leading up to “resolution making” time. Trying to keep a goal can be stressful in itself, but realizing that we have failed the goal, the goal that we set ourselves, can be particularly damaging. With that being said kudos to those who set and achieve your goals. You must be stronger than me!
