Goodbye 2017

Happy New Year~

Now what does that really mean?

I feel it puts so much pressure on yourself,

as it sets you up for failure.

Boy, I bet that isn't what you want to hear as you get ready to begin


But think about it~

Happy New Year~

Are you “happy” that the New Year is about to begin?

Are you happy you get to put behind 365 days and begin it all over again?

Are you happy to get another 365 days to~

still lose the weight,

start the exercise program,

write a list of new goals,

and break the same habit~


And then

what happens on February 1?

Do you still say

Happy New Year


Do you feel like a failure

because you weren't able to keep your New Year's Resolutions?

Hey, I am a pro at breaking resolutions,

that is why I don't make them.

I am unable to do anything on my own.

I can make lists about what I need to do

in order to live a perfect life, and to be a perfect person,

but they are impossible to keep.

We all want a

Happy New Year,

as no one plans an unhappy one.

No one writes a list of resolutions to fail.

Let's rewrite our
