January is coming to a close and many of us have already broken our New Year’s resolutions. Take comfort in the fact that you are not alone. I don’t know how many resolutions are made each year or how many resolutions are broken by year’s end. I guess Google could provide me with the answers but that’s not the point of this blog.inflatable toys australia
My theory is that many resolutions are broken because we set our great expectations too high. I started blogging a year ago and thought that it would be a piece of cake to do. On January 16, 2013 I even posted: “I didn’t think it would be that difficult to write something once or twice a week.” My posting frequency decreased significantly as the year went on. I had never blogged before and clearly set my expectations too high.
Even though I did not achieve the blogging success that I anticipated, I look back on the past year and take comfort in the fact that I tried something new. I take pride in the fact that I wrote with feeling and passion when I did it. I wrote to inspire and to make a difference. I don’t know if I achieved that goal or not but that’s for the readers to decide not me.
I will continue to blog but I have set my expectation at a more reasonable level. If your resolutions are already broken don’t give up just yet. Think about resetting your expectations and continue on.
I would love to hear your comments.
