Ah, January. That magical month where so many seem to convince themselves that all it takes is public declaration, and all things shall magically fall into place… thus resolving every foible, flaw, ill, and fault.
What. A. Crock.
New year? New you? I’ve got some news for you.
You’re doing just fine, really you are. Why do we insist on setting ourselves up this way every year? It’s January first, a fresh calendar is on the wall… so let’s start all over again? What about all the hard work you did in the twelve months that just passed? Are we just supposed to toss that in the trash because it’s a new year?
I say no.
We have earned our successes as much as any failures.
“A thinker sees his own actions as experiments and questions–as attempts to find out something. Success and failure are for him answers above all.” ~ Nietzche
The past year I did quiet a bit questioning, got a few answers and did a lot of earning.. hard earning.
I like to think that I am better for having banked those lessons, and I certainly don’t intend to toss them in the trash with the old calendar and replace them with some hollow resolutions.
This year I again say, “Resolve Nothing!”
Rather look back on what you have earned and look forward to what you plan to cash in from those earnings. How will you add to them this year?
I plan to grow richer in 2014, and that has nothing to do with resolving to get my shopping under control… as my husband can attest, that’s a lost cause.
What do you plan to not resolve this year?
