That said, I believe I reached a successful resolution in my life and it had to do with sewing. About 10 years ago, I was completely overwhelmed with work in progress, unfinished, abandoned projects, and fabric scraps. I had over 20 projects waiting to be completed and just thinking about them was overwhelming. So I resolved to finish or abandon the WIPs and now only have one sewing project at a time. Remarkably, it worked quite well.
I believe I was able to keep this resolution because I felt and remembered the consequences of not keeping it. So my only advice if you want to make a serious resolution is to choose one that is achievable and will make you feel better. Not having projects pending and focusing on one at a time works for me and makes me feel good.
Now, 10 years later, it's time for another reset and lots of WIP. But I'm confident I can get back on track. (I moved mid-2023 and haven't been able to unpack yet. But, once I unpack, I'd really like to finish these pending projects.)
Besides battling my WIPs, I would also like to explore my creativity more this year. I don't know how it will take shape, but I generally plan to have more fun and try different things.
