I am NOT a resolution maker but more of like a “goal setter”. I never like to feel as though I have failed at something, so I keep them simple and straight to the point. I know my capabilities and I also know when I can push myself to the limits. Don’t get me wrong I know that “change” is good BUT I don’t feel as though I want to “change” myself…if that makes any sense. I like who I am…outspoken, confident, and determined but I do look for ways to challenge myself! I will not make resolutions that compromise who I am, or that will take me so out of my element that I would be a FAKE to myself! Here are four resolutions that I refuse to make no matter what:
The forever resolution to “LOSE WEIGHT”
I have always been a bit chunky, but surely NOT funky! (got that one from Judy Torres many years ago 🙂 Since I can remember I have always had curves and I embrace them. Do I want to be healthy?-of course, for myself and to be around longer for my children. I don’t intend on ever being a size 2, nor do I want to be! I am comfortable within my own skin to do what is best for me healthwise. I know what I need to do, and I also know that I like to eat what I like to eat. I have NEVER been one to count calories, nor do I intend to do so now, just because it’s a new year. I don’t abuse food but I have become more aware of my intake and I do watch the quantity and the quality of the foods that I eat…sometimes!
To be a better, life changing person
I have NEVER had a problem with making or holding friends. I believe we ALL have an opinion, it might NOT be a rational one, but I give you the benefit of the doubt. If you have to make a resolution to be a BETTER PERSON, in MY OPINION you are NOT comfortable within your own skin!
Work Less, Enjoy Family More
I am a lover and “go getter” at heart. I LOVE hard and EQUALLY WORK HARD!!! That being said, I know my place and I know my priorities. I look forward to spending time with my family and if it were up to me I would work from home, that’s how much I ADORE being a mom! I realize that I get my work ethics from my dad–he worked his ass off (yes, I said ass-lol). He didn’t play equally but if that is one thing that I have learned to do “differently” is just that! I plan out my time with my family and I know that I do a great job at balancing them both if I may say so myself. So, I will continue to GRIND and work my behind off, enjoying my family and modeling to them that you CAN have and DO it all!
Hold my tongue
For those who know me they know that I speak my mind. I DO NOT hold my tongue for anyone! I will tell you how I feel and I will not hold back! I truly believe when you tell someone how you feel you’re being honest not only with them, but with yourself. Don’t get me wrong, I will NOT disrespect anyone (not even the haters) but I believe there is a way to let someone know certain things you just WON’T tolerate!
Just because resolutions are not for me doesn’t mean they aren’t for you. I enjoy being honest with my readers so I just wanted to let you know what NOT to expect from me in the year of 2014. That being said, I wish you all the happiness in all of your endeavors and goals. I hope you pass by and share them with me!
Share with me: Do you believe in resolutions? Why or why not? Do any of the resolutions that I will NOT make resonate with you?

I prefer to create my personal and professional goals.Your dad’s work ethic reminds me so much of my dad’s work ethic. One of my personal goals that I have for the new year is treating my parents to experiences that they both will enjoy, whether visiting a museum, visiting a new restaurant, or even visiting a new city.
Wish you an incredible year filled with happiness, excellent health, gratitude, peace, and prosperity!!! 🙂
Great spin on a new year. It’s not about changing yourself, it’s about challenging yourself to grow. 🙂
Happy New Year!
