Well, since it’s 2012 everyone is talking about the new year and things to change etc.etc. My New Year’s Resolution this year was to not have a New Year’s Resolution. As my brother’s girlfriend kindly pointed out I’ve already failed, so I guess I didn’t think that through very well.
Anyway, I know that a lot of things in my life are going to be changing whether or not I want them to, but I would really like to remain more or less the same. I always keep trying to do things or learn more things,but in all honesty the last thing I need is to be so busy I need to schedule bathroom breaks. No thanks! While everyone else is busy scrambling around and hating themselves for their failures I’m going to sit back with a cup of coffee and a good book and actually enjoy myself.
The other beef I have with New Year’s Resolutions is that people wait until the new year to start something that they should have started long ago. If you want to get in shape, or eat well, or learn a new language, WHY wait until the planet flops around the sun again? The way I see it is that if you REALLY want to make a change in your life you need to do it immediately. Don’t wait for some other event because the more you allow yourself time to wait the more likely you are to wait a little longer, then a little longer, and then you’re a grandparent with one foot in the grave and no life to show for it.
That’s my two cents, anyway.
