Full of glowing intentions, while reflecting moments of deep introspection, you sat down sometime around December 31 and wrote out a list of New Year’s Resolutions. Probably something to do with health, fitness, relationships and, in general, bettering yourself. It was a document of grand and lofty ideals. It would improve your life so much if you just put it into practice.
But, now it’s January 17, and the world has returned to normal. You still have to be at work on time, the kids still need to get to school in a timely fashion (tardy policies are ridiculous these days) and that carton of ice cream in the freezer is calling your name. Loudly.
Reality has set in. What were you thinking?
Did you know that according to some studies, almost 80% of all people who make New Year’s Resolutions abandon them sometime during the year? Why wait? Get that burden off your back. Move forward with your life, unencumbered with unfulfilled good intentions.
No worries! Today is the day created just for you. This is your golden ticket out of the self-created New Year’s Resolution Maze of Guilt.
Today is the official Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day.
In other news, it’s also the official Cable Car Day. Ha! Like that does us any good in Prescott.
Additionally, it’s Kid Inventors’ Day. Now that’s something we can all get behind. Let’s celebrate our kids and their incredible ideas. After all, they’re probably smarter than we are. (They ditched their New Year’s Resolutions a long time ago. Like, January 2.)
And if you need a little something to help calm the waters after such a turbulent period of time in your life, maybe you’ll want to participate in Hot-Buttered Rum Day.
