I know it’s not the end of the year but in all honesty, I’m done with my resolutions (mostly). A quick review of my resolutions and the eventual rewriting of them, tells me that I am a failure. Just kidding. Not a complete failure. But mostly a failure.
Haven’t written anything in forever, haven’t done my memorization, and minimizing, okay minimizing is going well for the most part. I was getting rid of lots of stuff at the beginning and have slowed down but I think that’s understandable. As far as reading my entire bookshelf, well, that’s not happening and it’s not going to happen. But I have 40+ books to give away now so I have definitely accomplished what I set out to do and I’m pretty satisfied with that.
I’ve decided to try my hand at National Novel Writing Month even though I’m starting almost halfway through. Whatever, gonna give it a shot. But this is my last shot at my writing goals.
Part of me says to not give up, that I have another month yet to accomplish things! But I know that it’s not going to make a difference (although miracles happen so if I suddenly get everything done in December anyway I’ll let you know). I’m finding I’m only marginally a fan of this resolutions thing. I didn’t even start off with a lot of power, honestly. Seriously, you’d think I would taper off throughout the year but a couple of my resolutions never even got off the ground! Maybe I made the wrong goals, maybe I just wasn’t disciplined enough to do what I wanted, or maybe I bit off more than I could chew.
Whatever the reason, I have decided to call it a year on my resolutions. The holidays are coming up and I’d rather not have these things hanging over my head when I’m trying to enjoy time with my family. I really thought about these resolutions all year long. It didn’t seem to make a difference for me in actually accomplishing things.
The mostly in the title refers to my reading of Psalms. I’m still going to finish that one. It’s more of a symmetry thing I suppose. The notebook I’m writing in is almost used up and I want to finish it off for this year. Kind of a silly reason but it’s gonna work for me!
How is everyone else doing on resolutions? I’ve been wondering about how other people feel about their resolutions this time of year. I still want to make resolutions next year because a couple of them were good for me. I feel like it was a good idea overall.
Yeah, I still feel good about my resolutions even though I didn’t accomplish all of them. I definitely failed. I’m a failure in some ways. But I didn’t fail in other ways and I’ll just focus on that.
