You Say You Want A Resolution


I am not great with resolutions, they never seem to stick and it seems better for me to just start to make whatever change I want to do when I want instead of waiting until for the calendar year to change. I have read through previous posts and see what I have kept and what has fallen by the side.

This year, I have decided to leave my resolutions to the randomness of the internet.  I have searched for resolution generators and have the results here:


Zimbio’s The Random New Year’s Resolution Generator lets you put in your name and choose what area you want to improve next year. I chose “random” because I like to double-down on the random whenever possible. YOLO is Carpe Diem for millennials, really.


The New Year’s Resolution Generator over on Pimsleur Approach lets also option to stop doing something.  I chose “random” and was advised against joining a juggling troupe.  Done and done.


Tales of Hoffman’s The Network Geeks Amazing New Year’s Generator! also lets you choose if you want to add or omit something from your life, but the only option is random. I am totally going to probably not keep this one.


The Notiionist has not updated their Resolution Generator since 2012, but I find the advice to still ring true.


Then there is They also think it is 2012 and they are retro in a way your forgot computers ever were.  They want me to keep it real even more, so I can agree to that.


This Year I Want To is a genius site that lets you anonymously submit what you want to do this year and read submissions by others.  I submitted mine and then let them inspire me with one.

This year, I will do whatever the fuck I want, I will exercise as much as I can and I will do my best to be the best version of myself, the newest version of myself.  I will leave this place better than how I found it.

  1. Here is an idea from my friend Judy: remember-lutions instead of resolutions. I like it!

    Starting on January first and continuing throughout the year, you write all the special things (small or large) that happen in your life, such as events, a warm moment, trips, whatever. It could be that you gave someone who was hurting a smile or a helping hand. You get the idea.

    You write each of these on a slip of paper and put them in a jar (or in special place).
    Then, on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day, you open it up and read all the wonderful things that happened during the year! It’s a reminder of all the things to be grateful for.
