I’m going to be honest with y’all, I am failing my 2012 New Year’s resolutions in spectacular fashion. I don’t know if it’s because I’m so distracted by preparing for the apocalypse or because I’m only good at resolutions that involve reading, but this year is not going very well for me resolution-wise.
I have two resolutions this year.
- To learn to play my ukulele
- To finish my book.
To recap what I have done so far…..
- I’ve not even touched my ukulele.
- Not only am I not close to finishing my book, I’ve completely changed direction and have to do a massive rewrite on about 95% of it.
So, I’m putting my ass on blast and calling myself out on not getting either one of these things done.
“Hey Girl on the Contrary! They should call you Girl on the Failure because you’re totally failing at New Year’s resolutions! Snap!”
Now that I’ve used biting humor to point the problem out to myself the process of healing can begin and I can rededicate myself to my resolutions. Especially the one about the book because, as I understand it, the world doesn’t really need another ukulele player. So, I’m giving myself deadlines and if I fail to meet them I will mercilessly taunt myself a second time.
Don’t call it a comeback. Call it a rededication to previously established goals. Actually, just call it a comeback.
