This is a serious question.
I don’t think I know one real, live person that I’ve met in the flesh who has made a resolution this year. I mean, I know plenty of people on the internet who are talking about resolutions, but did you make one?
For the last couple of years, I’ve taken a different approach to the whole resolutions thing. Instead of picking something that I know I’ll almost immediately feel like a complete failure about (see: quit sugar, lose twenty pounds, stop multitasking everything into oblivion), I’ve been choosing a word to make the theme of my year.
A theme is way less daunting than a resolution, which feels like a promise you can’t dare break—even if maybe you changed your mind about it because something came up that is infinitely more important. Resolutions are just too much freaking pressure. A theme is something I can handle.
