I don’t know a single person who makes a resolution and then keeps it. I’m not saying my friends and family are all flakes – I just think it’s a cute thing to do on January 1st and then by the end of the month, it’s forgotten.
My stepfather has bet me each year since I was 16 that he would quit smoking come the new year. At $100 a pop, the man owes me some serious change!
Britney Spears is the latest person to swear off a habit come 2009. What does she hope to rid herself of? Biting her nails.
"Next year, I have to learn to stop biting my nails! I would like to stop worrying so much, because I worry all the time. And to learn how to be happier, just in general. I have to learn to take things not so seriously."
But Spears is a realist. She too admits that resolutions are really hard to keep.
"I end up breaking them. It’s hard."
Are you trying to change something in your life? Do you tend to keep your resolutions? Or do you make them and break them?
