New Year’s resolutions – Right now they’re a little played out, but we’ve all made them at some point in our lives. The dictionary definition of a New Year’s resolution is a decision to do or stop something, made or announced at the New Year, which is traditionally considered a time for a fresh start; But we all know the truth – New Year’s resolutions are simply a mechanism that we use to put off all of our goals until the new year. An elegant form of procrastination.
There are the typical resolutions like working out more or to stop ignoring your daughter while blogging about New Year’s resolutions (or maybe that one was just a resolution I needed to make). And then there are the resolutions that are awesome and creative. I went on a quest to find out what were the best and most original New Year’s resolutions. Here are my top 10:
"I will stop sending emails to my wife."
- San Francisco, CA
"I will stop considering other people's feelings when they so obviously don't consider mine - if that unwashed fellow sits next to me again, I'll tell him he stinks!"
- Miama, FL
"I resolve to work with neglected children -- my own."
"For my new year’s resolution I will stop replying to funny jokes I hear by saying LOL."
"I will do less laundry and use more deodorant."
"Only get divorced and remarried once this year."
- Charlotte, NC
"I will remember that October 14th is National Dessert Day."
"Spend less than $1825 for coffee at Starbucks this year."
- Tumble, Colorodo
"Help kids stay safe by not texting on my cell phone while eating McDonald’s and speeding through crosswalks in school zones with a frost covered windshield."
- Nashville, TN
"I will resolve to make a list of New Year's resolutions every year."
