Surprise!!! I’m back, bright eyed and busy tailed.
I know, I know! I thought I’d be back blogging in Feb. But it turns out I’ve caught up with so much work! WoooHoo! So excited ♥
First of all, I just want to say that it’s great to complete resolutions and all and to have something to reach, but sometimes things don’t go according to plan and that’s not a bad thing.
So if you have trouble or had trouble completing Resolutions, no worries Love, Resolutions are just the topping of a delicious cake or pizza, which ever you’d prefer. 🙂
Although delicious, there are other ingredients that go into completing a slice of your life. So it’s not exactly about completing the Resolution itself, but how you reflect and how you can impact your life for the better.
You know what they say if you don’t plan you plan to fail. I didn’t say it. ^_^
So just in-case you didn’t drink the coolaid, let me offer you some insight from Wikipedia on what exactly is a New Year’s Resolution?
A New Year’s resolution is a secular tradition, most common in the Western Hemisphere but also found in the Eastern Hemisphere, in which a person makes a promise to do an act of self-improvement or something slightly nice, such as opening doors for people beginning from New Year’s Day.
Without further adieu…
