Lift Up a Friend in 2012

Today is the first day of 2012. Many of us are choosing today to finally set out to reach those goals that we’ve written down every December 31st for the last decade. Some of us aren’t. Resolutions put too much pressure on us and make us feel like failures when we screw up before Human Rights Day President’s Day.

Some of us choose February to start changing our lives. 82% of us have made the same New Year’s Resolution more than once. Some of us resolve to not resolve. And other’s choose to actively campaign against resolutions entirely.

Here’s my thought: If 82% of people have made the same resolution more than once, that means that 18% have either quit trying or they’ve succeeded. I haven’t had the best success with New Year’s resolutions myself, but if 10% have, who are we to discourage a change for the better, even it is on the first day of the year?

HERE’S TO AN AMAZING 2012 WHERE WE LIFT UP A FRIEND WITH A DESIRE TO CHANGE!

    Every year I make them but I put them in my daily planner so I see them EVERY day. I figure even if I follow through with one – it’s further than I was before right?

    Wow! What a great idea. The ironic thing is, once you lift someone else and see their progress, you might just feel motivated enough to enjoy your own progress. By the way… just stumbled upon your blog… I absolutely love how candid you are. This is blogging :) OH, and the kids; adorable too!
