Advice For Singles
January 1st, 2013 was for many a great day.  Celebrations, drinking, friends, food, fun – the whole deal.  You counted down ‘til 2012 was over, and you rang in the new year with a smile on your face.  When you woke up the next morning you were determined; confident that THIS was the year that you were going to get in shape.  Positive that THIS was the year that you were going to get yourself out of debt, or quit smoking.  It was 2013 that was going to be YOUR year.  You were going to take the bull by the horns and show the world that when you make a resolution, you stick to it.

How did that work out for you?  Are you still standing strong? Or, have you given in to laziness and/or temptation?  Have you forgotten the resolution you made just a few short months ago?  Maybe you thought it just wasn’t worth it, or maybe you thought your resolution was unrealistic.  In any event, for many, early Spring can be a great time to dust off those discarded resolutions, giving them a second chance for success.

Earlier on this year, I wrote a piece about making resolutions that you could keep.   Here is the link to that article – New Year’s Resolutions You Can Actually Keep.  The three main points from that article are as follows: 1) Do something better than you did the year before.  2) Split up your goals into smaller, more manageable pieces, and 3) Do something for someone else.  If you have some time, I highly recommend re-reading that post, as it has a number of great ideas on how to make quality New Year’s Resolutions, and how to avoid giving up on them too early.

Now, it’s early Spring.  The sun is shining, the flower buds are beginning to peek out their heads, and the weather is warming up.  The faint scent of love is in the air.  If you are anything like me, it is around this time that you wish you had stuck with your New Year’s Resolution. 

-          “I wish I had stuck with the gym.  It’s going to be bikini season soon, and I’m nowhere near ready.”

 -          “It’s getting much warmer and I know my friends are going to want to hang out a lot more now.  I wish I had stuck with my resolution to save money…now I’m broke.”

Regardless of what your resolution was, the point is: we all get lazy.  We all give in to temptation.  However, that doesn’t mean we have to forget about our resolutions altogether.  Why not change the path you’re currently on, and get back on the right track.

Think of March as a new, albeit shorter, year.  A year is only 12 months long, and 2 have already blown by.  You still have over 80 percent of the year left to go though, and that is more than enough time to accomplish your goals.  So, here’s what you do:

1)      Write down your goal.  Saying it is good, but writing it down is better.  This way you won’t forget it and you’ll see it every day.  Post it on your refrigerator or in your car.  Someplace where you can’t escape it.

2)      Understand that “Rome wasn’t built in a day.”  Everything takes time.  However, don’t use this as an excuse.  Work hard, but understand that you won’t get dramatic results overnight.

3)      Lastly, tell others about your resolution.  A little help from your friends or family can go a loooong way.  Tell them what you’re trying to do, and they can give you the moral support you need.  Who knows, maybe seeing you work so hard to maintain your New Year’s Resolution will encourage them to do the same. 

Now, here is the best part.  Tell us about your success stories.  We want to know what New Year’s Resolutions you made, what ones you forgot about, and what Resolutions you’re planning on working on again.  We’re a community of people looking for help from one another.  Don’t be shy; share your thoughts with everyone.

Good luck and Happy Dating!
