How To Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions in 2011

A Cotton Candy Year

A Cotton Candy Year

Hello World,
Happy New Year if you are just joining us. Hope you are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for you in 2011. At the top of this page you see something we no longer see very often. It is cotton candy. If you’ve never had cotton candy try it at least once. Anyway, I took the picture in Times Square on New Year’s Eve because it was an unusual sight, and the colors were vibrant. You really had to pay attention. So, as I was doing this blog and looking for a picture I thought this would be great to illustrate my main point in this blog. Every new year is like cotton candy. The first few days we see life as vibrant, beautiful, colorful and sweet. We make great new year’s resolutions for the months ahead, and by February 1, very few people are sticking to their resolutions. Our resolutions are like cotton candy, beautiful, fluffy, and sweet, but not practical enough to last for any period of time or to keep our focus for any length of time. As soon as you put cotton candy in your mouth it melts. Life can look so beautiful and colorful depending on where you’re standing. Then when you get a taste of it- it is sweet, but like cotton candy it just melts on your tongue. When the new year starts we can see it as beautiful as cotton candy, but in order not to procrastinate we need to remember that time marches on. Already we are in day three of the new year. Everything is back to normal and we have to get back to normal as it pertains to resetting our lives. We have a fresh start, a clean slate, a new beginning with 12 months that we can make as colorful and as sweet as cotton candy. The key is we must have a plan because as sweet as it is- it’s fleeting. In a short time it will be 12-31-2011 and we will be wondering where did 2011 go. In order for you to keep your new year’s resolutions in 2011, you must write your resolutions down and also write the steps you intend to take for the resolutions to become realities.
