RESOLUTIONS THAT SOUND GOOD AT FIRST
It's great that you've made a New Year's Resolution ... but have you really thought it through? Many times, things sound good at first and then not so good after you've actually given it a try.
So you need to pick a resolution that can realistically be attained.
Here are some big life decisions that sound awesome ... until you actually do them.
- Getting back in shape − Everyone tries this, but what no one seems to understand is that getting in shape is a lifelong commitment. Once you reach your desired shape, you're supposed to maintain it−not go back to the couch and stuff your pie hole.
- Adopting a dog − Sure, you like dogs and love feeling like a hero for rescuing an animal from the shelter, but after you adopt it you have the responsibility of taking care of it.
- Breaking up with your girlfriend − You'll finally dump her and return to the wild bachelor life, right? Wrong. You'll probably realize not long after that she wasn't so bad and you were happier with her.
- Having a kid − If you don't already have a kid, you have no idea what you're getting into. How bad can it be, right? Imagine the worst − and multiply it by 10. (Guyism.com)
Ba ha ha ha ha ha! I laughed out loud at this last one. Of course changing to a healthier lifestyle for life, adopting a dog and having a baby are all wonderful blessings. : ) ~Jessie B
