Resolution by definition is:
to come to a definite or earnest decision about; determine (to do something): I have resolved that I shall live to the full.
Another definition is: to separate into constituent or elementary parts; break up; cause or disintegrate to separate into constituent or elementary parts; break up; cause or disintegrate.
It's the second one that I love. "Break up or disintegrate." It was during the Review Extravaganza where I read a fellow bloggers post about "promises" she made. She decided resolutions were not the way to go. So she went with promises instead.
a declaration that something will or will not be done, given, etc., by one: unkept political promises.
She managed to keep most if not all of her promises. I was most impressed by this. And then I was impressed by the thought of promising to do something. My mother raised me that a promise is a promise. If you are not able to do it, don't promise. I have done the same with my own kids. They know if I can't promise I won't. So this year, I am not resolving anything. Instead I am promising.
1. I promise to move more
2. I promise to improve my good eating habits
3. I promise to lose weight gained
4. I promise to be a better money manager
5. I promise to be more creative(pinterest here I come!)
What are you going to promise yourself this year?
