One of my Facebook friends posted this great article called "5 Questions to Ask Yourself About Your New Year's Resolutions," by Gretchen Rubin, the author of The Happiness Project. I feel like it's hard to do a fresh take on making great resolutions, but I love her approach.
Here's her first question:
"1. Ask: “What would make me happier?” It might mean more of something good —more fun with friends, more time for a hobby. It might be less of something bad—less yelling at your kids, less nagging of your spouse. It might be fixing something that doesn’t feel right—more time spent volunteering, a move. Or maybe you need to get an atmosphere of growth in your life by learning something new, helping someone, or fixing something that isn’t working properly." (credit: Gretchen Rubin)
The rest of her questions are great too - but click over to the article and read them in Gretchen's own words. I thought I had my New Year's Resolutions all figured out, but her questions got me thinking....
