Make a Resolution For Happiness

Have you noticed what the big retail store displays are, now that the holidays are over? It’s all about fitness and organizing because this is the time of year for Resolutions. With most people resolving to lose weight and be more organized, stores are banking on you putting a little money into those goals. But will making those same tired old resolutions help you to have a better life? Will sticking to that diet or getting more organized make you happy? Or will you just end up miserable and starving but with all new containers and a yoga mat?


I say ditch the norm, and stop setting yourself up for failure. Look for goals that will add true happiness to your life. Here’s a few that have worked for me, with a couple new ones thrown in.

  • Talk less so you can hear more.


  • Value other’s opinions but make sure to also have your own.

  • Lay down in the grass, just because.

  • Read more and be okay with nothing else getting done while you do it.

  • Visit a toy store, even if you don’t have children.

  • Watch a reality show. Yes, it’s a dumb show, but dumb can be funny.

  • Hang pictures in your office, not just of where you’ve been, but also of where you want to go. One day it may just keep you from quitting.

  • Don’t get so caught up in saving money that you forget to splurge a little. Money is only paper until you buy something with it.

  • Wear glitter make-up, because, despite what some may say, you’re never too old to sparkle.

  • Just because you can’t wear heals anymore doesn’t mean your shoes can’t be cute.

  • If you hear music you like, dance! If someone laughs at you, then you know you’re not the only one smiling.
