No More New Year's Resolutions!

I'm with the Tight Fisted Miser on this one! No more resolutions! It isn't working. I keep beating myself up for my failures. So I'm going to say that these are things that I would like to happen in 2010.
1.) stop dieting all together. It's just another tool in the "beat up SonyaAnn arsenal" Maybe get a bit healthier though.
2.) Finish my book and start another.
3.) Continue to fight the good fight against all of our bills.
4.) I would like to get a book deal.
I spent so much energy wishing for some of the things on last years list to happen. And that is so stupid, my future isn't going to happen by wishing. It's going to happen with hard work. It's so hard to accomplish some of the things I want and still put the family first. So I need to realize that somethings will be on the back burner for a while. I write as a hobby, it's not a job. I would love to spend my days writing but all I can give myself now is an hour or two a day, at best. And that is good enough, I'm not going to beat myself up. Maybe some of my goals need to be obtainable and some need to be far fetched. So I'll keep you posted on how my UnResolutions turn out for the year!
Thanks for stopping by,
SonyaAnn

SonyaAnn,
I don't call them resolutions anymore. They are HOPES from now on.
That way if I don't reach a goal I don't feel so bad, and I don't feel as much stress in the 1st place either. ;-))

i like something to focus on...so they work for me! I'm hoping you get the book deal too...that would ROCK!

I hope you get a book deal too! My big thing this year was to start Weight Watchers with my husband and possibly daughter... We'll see how that goes... It's already January 11th and we haven't done much to hit that "hope" yet. Here's hoping!

I try not to make resolutions... I know I can't/won't keep. I will just try to improve myself a little more. Maybe drink more water everyday. I am a dt. soda junkie & we all know how bad they are. Hey as for the book....I hope you get a deal. I just love to read.

I call it my, "Stuff I Swear I'm Going To Do, Then Feel Like Shit Because I Don't" List. But heck, that's a weekly thing with me, not just in January. I almost never finish doing what I intend to...

But, I'll cheer you on. You can do it S.A.!

P.S. Include me in your book. : P

HUGS

I don't call mine resolutions either. I just call them goals. It gives me something to strive for and if I fail at one I can just pick myself up and continue.
Good luck on the unresolutions.

I know, I seem to post the same resolutions every year, will I never learn?

SonyaAnn said...

slugmama-Why do we do this to ourselves? I think we set ourselves up for failure. We must like the feeling of it!

SonyaAnn said...

kado!-It weird I have such focus when it comes to things like bills, saving money, or writing a book. And I'm not bragging but it takes amazing dedication to finish a book. So why can I write a book that may take years to write but can't do something so simple as putting the fork down?

SonyaAnn said...

McVal-Maybe you and your hubs could race to see who could lose more? I wouldn't worry about it. And if you start feeling bad about yourself just come over here and see how bad I'm doing! That should lift your spirits.

SonyaAnn said...

Together We Save-Thank you for the encouragement with the book. It will take a lifetime to get a "real" deal. But I should count my blessings and realize that getting a little book deal is better than nothing. I did get it in print so I should shut up.
I know what our resolutions should be for next year. Let's hunt down the bastard that makes us feel like we need to make them!

SonyaAnn said...

Dawna-"Stuff I Swear I'm Going To Do, Then Feel Like Shit Because I Don't" List." I pretty sure that that is the official name of it!
Honey, don't beat yourself up, there are plenty of people to do that for you! There is nothing but love for you here!

SonyaAnn said...

Pam- I'm going to resolve to eat more and sleep more. Maybe get more TV time in! Maybe I will get lucky and fail at these resolutions!

SonyaAnn said...

Marilyn's Money-We are in the same line together, the will we learn line. How about we just decide to make ourselves happy and spend more time at the spa?LOL

"Pam- I'm going to resolve to eat more and sleep more. Maybe get more TV time in! Maybe I will get lucky and fail at these resolutions!"

Good luck on those resolutions!LOLOL

SonyaAnn said...

slugmama-How about we set resolutions that we would love to do? Think about something that would make you happy, would be a great resolution. I want to eat in bed more often! Why don't things like this make it to our list?
