#ygkChallenge: Keep Those Resolutions

Food BankWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Tell us what you’re resolving to do. Happy New Year! I hope you had a terrific holiday season and are ready to jump into 2013 with a splash. Harvey and I have made some resolutions, many of which involve making up for some, ahem, over-indulgences that went down over the past two weeks…but we’ve also created some longer-term goals for ourselves. They say there are two very important parts of creating a resolution and keeping it: 1. Be realistic – pick things that are attainable. Even the smallest change can lead to something bigger. 2. Be accountable – let others know what your goals are so they can support you. This is where this week’s challenge comes in. In the comments below, share with us one (or more if you’d like) resolution that you’ve made for yourself this year. It doesn’t have to be huge, it doesn’t have to be super personal, it just has to be real. Let’s all help each other be and do better in 2013.

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by sharing the link and encouraging the participation of your friends and family. By joining together in our weekly challenge, we hope to accomplish big and positive things for our community.
