One year ago today, I gave up making New Year's resolutions because I realized how unhappy they had made me over the years—and how unattainable some of my resolutions were. The truth is that resolutions make us focus on what we don't like about ourselves when we should be focusing on what we DO like.
In that vein, here are my 2011 non-resolutions (in other words, the things I appreciate about myself this year). . .
1) I'm proud that, despite a hellish work schedule, I exercised at least five times a week this year.
2) I'm glad that my weight hasn't gone up but instead has stayed basically the same. (In case you don't know, I weigh 196 glorious pounds.)
3) I'm relieved that I did not have any major injuries or physical setbacks this year.
4) I'm happy that I have a closet full of clothes that make me feel good about the way I look right now.
5) And finally I'm thrilled that I still feel attractive even though I weigh more than most people think an attractive person should weigh.
That's it for me—what about all of you?
What are your non-resolutions??? I challenge you to make at least one.
