There’s a reason I don’t do resolutions any more. see, I have a pet peeve. Well, I have a lot of them but there’s one in particular that just makes me snarly. And since I don’t like being snarly, I avoid people who break their promises.
The Two of Cups is a card that makes me think of kept promises but also the fragile future of a promise. So many things can come up. So many bumps that make us have to change our minds, break our promises.
A resolution, to me, is a promise I make to myself. When I inevitably break that promise, I get snarly with myself. Since I don’t like being snarly with myself, I don’t make resolutions.

What I have learned is that if I create goals, I can see them in different ways. I set up specific steps to achieve them.
Are my goals resolutions?
Yes and no. Yes in that I am resolved to go them but no in that I don’t see them as promises to myself. I see them as things on my yearly to-do list.
So in a way I’m playing word games with my own head.
It works. I wasn’t doing resolutions for a long time nor was I doing goals. Then the workbook happened and I got busy. Really really busy.
Was it easy? Nah…I had to make time for the work. I had to do the work. Then I had to get out of my own way.
So yes, I’m very fond of the workbook. I’m as fond of it as some of you may be sick of hearing about it from me. LOL
