New year, new resolutions. New things to think about? Write more, run more, work more, eat better, think better, BE better.
This got me wondering. What makes us do these things? Why does this transition really matter? I suppose, like many things, it’s just a marker. A time to band together and say, “We can do better, this time it’ll stick!”
So we drink a lot, and then kiss someone when the ball drops. Just because that’s the way it’s been for a good while. But what if it really meant something? What if people were to sit down and think to themselves, “Yes. Things are going to change this year. For the better!”
This happens often in blogs and status updates and people twit their resolutions as 140 characters for less. Some work, some don’t? Can I keep the resolutions that I made? Does it really work to say something just to say it? How does this whole motivation thing work?
I find myself asking why I don’t keep a lot of the promises I make myself. I’m a good liar when I talk to myself, and I’m as gullible as they come, so it’s a problem I often face considering changes in personality.
Regardless, regretless, and a day late, here are my resolutions. A toast to the hope of achieving number one.
1. Become self-motivated and able to rely on what I tell myself.
2. Be more aware of myself, emotionally and physically.
3. Talk to someone about something that’s needed to be talked about since September.4. Know when to hold them and know when to walk away.
I’ve started, a new beginning.Suspiciously like the old one.Only this time I’m ready.
Cheers and all that,
