Happy New Year! There’s a rather long story that goes with the subject, but suffice it to say it means to “kill the moment”.
Anywho, with that–It is great to see everyone so ambitious about their resolutions, but what is another day, of another month, of another year? Why couldn’t you start eating healthy yesterday? Why couldn’t you start reading more last month? Why couldn’t you save the world last year? Why now?
The new year marks such a shallow reason to be ambitious. Be ambitious on your own terms, they are called goals! Stop calling them resolutions as if you will remember them past February. For some, I may be completely wrong and out of my place as another jaded blogger, but whatever the case, do it because you want to! Because you can.. Right now! Because it is 12:29 a.m. and I am exhausted! And please, I welcome contention because sometimes, you need someone to contest your opinion before you understand it yourself. Fortunately, I have N there to contest everything I say.
I just looked back on last new year’s entry: Why is New Year’s such a big deal? As are birthdays! I don’t mean to be the cynic, but really, like in Alice in Wonderland– Wouldn’t you want a Happy Un-Birthday everyday? Or wouldn’t you want to start everyday with a resolution? Maybe we’d be more inclined to actually resolve them.
I am writing the same stuff every year! Hopefully aside from this constancy, I am still progressing as a person. You can never stop progressing, it just gets better.
