Bitch on the Blog

I haven’t yet done all the quizzes newspapers bombard us with at the end of year; neither have I looked at compilations of “Best of 2017”, yet. I’ll keep that till a time when I should be doing something else. Which brings us, neatly, tidily, annoyingly, to New Year’s resolutions and how to divest ourselves from old, and form new habits.

Needless to say that I don’t make NY resolutions because I tend to avoid setting myself up for failure. I’d rather decide on February, 30th, what needs to be tweaked. Why make resolutions for the “better”? We’d all be far more successful at keeping resolutions if they appealed to the worse in us.

In which spirit I wish you a 2018 to top all 2018s – may you come out the other end as you entered it … with hope in your heart.





  1. Happy New Year!

    Was thinking about resolving to make no resolutions … but haven’t committed to this yet.

  2. This is perhaps the best New Years post I have ever read: pragmatic but still hopeful and wishing well. The happiest of 2018s to you, too, Ursula

  3. Thank you. I send you best wishes for a great 2018.

    Many new years ago, I made a resolution not to make new year resolutions and have resolutely kept to that. I am no less for wear!

  4. February 30th?

    No resolutions for me, either. I know what I need to do and what I want to do. I just need to stop procrastinating. Resolutions won’t help me with that. Resolutions are just crutches that inevitably fail.

    I hope you (and your readers) have a great and relatively stress free 2018.

  5. Happy New Year from me, far away in summertime New Zealand – where I too make no resolutions – rather this year I have chosen 3 words, although some of my readers suggested more words. Anyway my chosen words are: adventurous, magical, quirky

  6. My new year resolution is always to worry less. Usually I break it, but I think last year I did actually worry less than before and was better at taking life as it comes. Hopefully that tendency will continue.

    I hope you have a wonderful 2018!
