Resolutions, Smetherlutions

Here we are about to ring in the new year.  Out with the old and in with the new.  So they say.  How many resolutions have I made and not kept.  Tons.  That's how many.  And then there have been the years that I don't feel it's worth it to even try.  Why disappoint myself?  I'm just setting myself up for a let down.

Do you ever wonder how much money is spent on stuff that involves resolutions?  All of the exercise equipment, juicers, magic diet pills, and the list goes on.  I'm not anti-resolution.  I fully support healthy choices and positive moves that make more time for faith, family and friends.

I've tried all of the promises to myself and they really haven't worked out that well. In fact I often do the opposite of what was planned.  So that's what I'm going to do.  The opposite.  Stay with me.  This  is a little confusing.  Here goes.

I am going to eat more and sleep less.  I am going to spend lots of money.  I will cut back on my exercise routine.  I will spend less time with family and friends.  I won't read as much.  I will cut back on my walks with the dogs.  I will watch more tv.   I hope I don't have to travel at all.

In my goofy way of thinking, I feel I may have discovered a new way to keep my promises, my resolutions.  They say that opposites attract.  Maybe if I resolve to do the opposite of what I say it will actually happen.  Yep.  A reversal of thinking.  I'm liking it.  I think this may actually work for me.  Oh wait, I'm pretty sure that this will be a complete failure.  Wink.
