Happy New Year!

Speaking of the new year…

I don’t have any New Year’s resolutions.

And I’m far too exhausted from all the, uh, fun and excitement of 2017 to make any.

But anyway, here are a dozen hilariously motivating and inspirational pieces of New Year’s resolution advice to help start the year off with a bang:

new-year18

(Having realistic goals and expectations helps start the new year off right and prevents instant failure two days in to the year.)

new-year13

(That’s the spirit! Way to embrace your amazing self, imperfections and all.)

new-year19

(If you make any resolutions at all this year, this ought to be it.)

new-year12

(This is a great way to take the pressure off. If you succeed in somehow bettering yourself, great. If you don’t, nothing lost. It’s a win-win!)

new-year1

(Go big or go home, right? So why not aim to fail in the grandest of manners?)

new-year17

(Ah, so that’s what all the fuss is about? A week-long To Do list? When you look at it that way, it really doesn’t sound so daunting.)

new-year6

(What a terrific idea! Everything about it has the makings of a successful business concept.)

new-year16

(For those of you with kids, it is imperative to set goals that are practical, attainable, and won’t drive you to drinking in the event of miserly defeat.)

new-year10

(Nothing beats the feeling of knowing that all your friends are rooting for your failure. Oh well. Who needs them, anyway? The resolutions, that is. Not the friends. Friends are good. Well, mostly.)

new-year11

(Some of us struggle with being able to identify realistic goals. It happens. Fortunately, there’s always someone who’s eager to help set the record straight.)

new-year2

(Hey! Being a smart-ass is a talent, not a bad vice that needs to be obliterated. Geez!)

new-year3

(Now this I can handle! Being awesome is…well, awesome! Always choose to be awesome.)

Whether or not you made any resolutions for 2018, just remember this:

Stay positive, keep smiling, and always try to find the humor in whatever life throws your way.

~Happy Friday, friends! Best wishes for a bright 2018!~

So Long, 2017!

And so another year comes to a close.

Whew!

Where has the time gone?

Oh, wait.

I know.

As my oldest child would say…

Down the toilet.

Yeah.

Sounds about right.

Like any other year, there have been ups and downs.

But with any luck, the highs have more than balanced out the lows.

That seems to be the key to maintaining one’s sanity.

More or less.

But sanity is overrated.

So if 2017 wasn’t your personal best, fret not.

2018 is waiting right around the corner with the promise of a brighter year.

Let’s usher in the upcoming year with a bit of humorous inspiration from Mark Twain, shall we?

“New Year’s Day: Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.”

Ah, yes.

Sounds like a mighty fine plan, indeed!

~Quirky Girl and The Bigly Bestest Doggie would like to take this opportunity to wish all our wonderful friends a bright, fantastic, and prosperous 2018! Let’s make it amazing!~

Oh, hi there! Hey, wait a second! It's not time for Tuesday Tails 'n' Tweets yet... is it?
