I can’t stand New Year’s Resolutions.
Not because I dislike having goals but because I can’t stand the “new car smell” that comes along with those resolutions. You know where you get the car and it smells new and everyone comments on it but after a while you notice the smell is gone and you’ve got random shit under the seat like fries and receipts?
I’m not in the mood for that.
I go out of my way to not make any resolutions towards New Year’s Day because in some strange reverse-psychology way, I tend to stick to my goals more without thinking of them as new. I find it important to consider my goals necessary.
I find brushing my teeth to be important. I find taking out the garbage to be important. So, why don’t these necessities fall to the wayside after mere few weeks or months? Because they are necessary and thus rendered to be a priority.
