As I welcome October, I realize that we are officially in the last quarter of the year. This got me reflecting on the majority of 2013 that has already passed. Personally, this year has probably been my best out of the last five years because I’ve begun pushing myself out of my comfort zone.
Even though I’ve had such a great year I think to myself, Did I accomplish everything I wanted to? I couldn’t even remember where I had written down my resolutions from the previous year. It was then that I decided to make my first resolution for 2014: remember the resolutions you make. My roommate, Chloe, had suggested that documenting them online would be easiest and a good source of accountability. Thus, this blog was born. It’s a community of friends supporting each other to become better versions of themselves.
But everyone’s problem with resolutions is that they’re impossible to keep; we struggle to break the bad habit cycle. And by the 3rd week of January, we’re practically waving the white flag. Some say it takes 21 days to break a habit; others say 40 days. The list of theories goes on. So my friends and I decided to get a head start now – 3 months in advance just to make sure – so by the time 2014 rolls around, we will have gone through a couple rounds of trial and error. Then we’ll be well on our way to accomplishing our goals next year.
