Year of the Peeps – Do you believe in New Years Resolutions?

on February 3, 2015

This year I am trying something a little different on the Facebook page and Blog.  Each month I will post a “Question of the Month” for all you “peeps”.  You know “PEEPS”, you guys, amigos, buddies, etc.  Throughout the month I will throw out some reminders on the FB page.

I will do my best to blog responses in a timely manner.  My plan is the first week of the following month but hey I have commitment issues 😉  (actually no I have life, family and crazy schedule issues, hehe)

Any who……..I have dubbed this year:

Year of the Peeps

YOTP

January 2015’s question was “Do you believe in New Years resolutions?  Why or why not?”  I got a lot of mixed answers to this question.  Some peeps use them as motivation to learn something new, some don’t believe in them at all.  Here’s what you guys had to say:

Helen M:  ” I believe in them and have kept many of them. Learn to swim, stop smoking, start running are just a few from the past. This year it is run a marathon. Signed up for First one in May.”     (wahoo Go Helen!!!)

Kristi K:  “I believe we shouldn’t wait for New years to better ourselves. But for some people they need the mental support of other starting their journeys at the same time. I have never kept a resolution, maybe that’s why I think they don’t work!”  (I also believe if you have support of others that definitely helps!)

Tiffany B: Yes and I know, it’s good to set goals and stick to them. Yet you shouldn’t wait do to it once a year. Be your best all year-long!!!”  ( I also agree Tiffany!  Have different goals throughout the year is an awesome idea!)

Aimee P:  “I do! I think they are a fun way to motivate many aspects of your life!”  (motivation is the key to improvement!)

Kristy R: “I don’t do resolutions BC I feel like they are setting up for failure, I choose to do one word that I focus on in all areas of my life throughout the year. One year was healing, one was consistency, I’m still working on this years.”(This year I have chosen to go the same route as Kristy.  My word for 2015 is “Balance”)

 

So what do you think of New Year’s Resolutions?

Thanks everyone!  Keep an eye out of the February 2015 question.

  1. I don’t call them resolutions but rather goals and intentions. I feel that a goal allows me to make changes that fit where a resolution seems like it’s all or nothing.

Would love to hear from you!
