I've come to find it kind of interesting, the idea of New Year's Resolutions. We decide that starting one day, normally January 1st, that something is going to change. This "something" could be (most commonly) habits regarding health, financial situations, the notion that you'll update your blog more often... (That's not a promise), however, we begin these ideas in a time when yesterday is just as real as today. Now, a resolution, by its simplest definition, is a decision to do something or not do something. But you're deciding to do (or not do) something on Sunday, that you just spent all day Saturday doing awaiting its resolution. Some people see the new year as a chance to start over... but is it? After all, on Monday or Tuesday when you go back to work you will still walk into the same building, you'll see the same people, give the same greetings, and probably do just about the same task as you did during your last day of work in the last year. It's a new year, not a new life.
I understand that this may be coming about as a bit of a rant about how New Years Resolutions aren't necessary... it may even seem like I'm bashing them a tad... But I assure you that isn't my point at all. My point is; Whether you decide to start eating healthier on January 1st, or on June 12th, it'll probably be followed by the same results. And, when you slip up on January 12th, or June 26th, you can just start over on January 13th, or June 27th, because today comes after yesterday and before tomorrow no matter what the date is on the calendar.
So choose to be more studious on a Wednesday afternoon; decide to stick a charity in your budget next month; start eating healthier because you truly want to. Instead of New Year's Resolutions, lets make Resolutions every day.
