10 Reasons My New Years Resolutions are BULLSHIT

OK. I said it. My new years resolutions are complete and utter BULLSHIT. I mean I make the same stupid new years resolutions every single cot damned year. Every single stupid mediocre, common resolution that you can think of… I have resolved to do it one year or the other. 

My Previous Garbage New Years Resolutions 

  1. Quit Smoking
  2. Lose Weight 
  3. Eat Healthier
  4. Exercise More
  5. Say “yes” to my kids more 
  6. Take more “me time” 
  7. Be more Involved in the Kids School 
  8. Have a cleaner house
  9. Make Pinterest Worthy Lunches
  10. Spend more time with my friends

Do you know what happened every single time I made these new years resolutions? Everything Changed! NOTHING happened. NOTHING. Not even a fucking stir in the atmosphere. Why? Because the truth of the matter is, I ALREADY DO 90% of what I resolve to do, except the things that would better ME as a person. I don’t take my own damned advice and take me time. Oh no. No, I don’t. I don’t spend more time with my friends, or eat healthier or god forbid, quit smoking. I just don’t. I pour myself continuously into the things that make my kids and husband happy and spend zero time worrying about myself and what will make me happy. I spend all day worrying about how to please other people and take care of them but I don’t take care of myself for one second. I get so fucking preoccupied with making sure that I am likable and friendly and funny and everyone’s damn caretaker, that I forget I am actually an important human being. I spread myself too thin. 

Do you know what has actually happened?

I stopped writing. 

I stopped writing these posts because you know what? I was afraid I would offend someone. I started writing generic “How tos” and random “Why you shoulds” but never took my own advice and participated in the things I love. I censored myself. I tried to be supermom, superwife, superbloggingninjaextraordinaire… and I was MISERABLE.

This year I resolve to stop resolving to do a damn thing for other people. I am TOTALLY going to say no more to people who I KNOW are under valuing me. I am going to stop making resolutions that are technically for other people and their benefit. In fact, I am not going to make one resolution at all. Why? Because I am just going to do. I am going to stop just “saying.” Actions speak louder than words and I want mine to have a megaphone. 

I am back bitches.
