A New Year's resolution is one of those fleeting things that disappears with the snow in late January. Or if one is lucky and dedicated, the resolution might hold up until Valentine's Day.
Whether it's losing weight or exercising more; spending more time outside or fixing that pesky plumbing leak; or a thousand other things both large and small; New Year's Resolutions just seem vanish with the coming Spring.
So this year, I resolved to make a resolution that I will keep for all of 2008. And so far, I'm happy to report success.
My resolution: to drink more, better coffee.
Starbucks, Satellite, Michael Thomas Coffee
, Home Espresso Machine
, Home Coffee Maker, Work Coffee
- the potential is endless.
Only one rule, no bad coffee. OK two rules. The other is no coffee after noon (new year's resolutions aren't suppose to cause insomnia).
I'm happy to report a successful, albeit perky 2008 so far. Which makes me wonder why resolutions have become this resolve-to-do-the-hardest-most-miserable-thing-possible sort of scenario.
What's all this negative reinforcement? How about starting the year off right, with something you want to do, with something that will make you happy? And for that matter, why do resolutions have to coincide with New Year's Day? What about, oh, say April 7, 2008?
How are your New Year's resolutions going?
