Bruce’s Business: resolutions

 Well wasn’t Christmas just blooming bang tidy! No sooner had the tree and all the tinsel gone up, the turkey was bought, the cranberry sauce was smothered on, boom bash wallop, I’ve put on two stone and it’s the start of a new year.

How many of you are still sticking to your resolutions? Bet those sporty gym trainers are still gleaming as you never wore them other than trying them on. You have convinced yourself that you will, without doubt give up smoking. In 2012 like.
All of us are slaves to our own decisions. If you chose to make a New Year’s resolution and you have already let it slip, look at the reason why it failed. No, look at the real reason.

Most resolutions fail because we accept that they will. We then go looking for an excuse that makes the failure acceptable. I haven’t got time to go to the gym. Of course you haven’t, you watch four hours of Corrie a night, where can you possibly fit the gym in! I’m allergic to vegetables. Fine, but that doesn’t mean you have to be non-allergicy (I just made a brand new word up there!) to eating eight Mars bars a night does it now lardy! I can’t give up smoking, I get too stressed. Cracking, as possibly getting lung cancer will be the most stress free therapeutic experience you can ever have.

What it boils down to is simply how much you want it. You want to lose weight? Allocate some time to go the gym as your resolution is to lose weight not watch every episode of Corrie.
You want to save? Well stop spending as much. You want get fit and to learn Zumba? Well you aint going to learn it sitting on the settee and patting your protruding stomach are you!
One thing you have to do to achieve this though is make time for yourself. Without you saying, for one hour a day, I am going to achieve something that I, ME, wants to achieve, you won’t do it. Working, cleaning, making dinner, watching Corrie etc.

Allocate some time, get off ya bum and go and do something that you want to do, that will make you feel good about YOU! Because if you feel good about you, all the other stuff that you have to do for other people becomes more bearable.

Now, you will have to excuse me as it’s time for my daily hour of massage from Megan Fox. It was pure luck that her New Year resolution was to give me daily massages, so quite naturally, I allocated some time for myself!.

And with it being the Valentine’s issue, here is one for the blokes-at least allocate one evening to show the woman in your life that you love her on the 14th Feb. Without this correct time allocation, your life is not worth living!
 Go and achieve, or sit on the settee. We are the results of our decisions.
PEACE AND LOVE!!
