Happy New Year!
And with the new year comes resolutions, right? Right?
I think lots of people make "New Year's Resolutions" halfheartedly. All you have to do is scan down your facebook page right now to read more than your fair share of resolution jokes. Things like...
... This is the year I will finish the resolutions that I made last year and planned the year before that.
But, resolutions are supposed to be resolute. According to Merriam-webster, resolute means "marked by firm determination."
And Resolution is supposed to be the completion of something, or the solving of a problem.
However, in the real world, New Year's resolutions get pushed to the way side all the time. Things happen. Life happens. Plans change and suddenly last year's resolutions are this years again.
And then we all feel bummed out. Because here we had this awesome goal and we failed. Whether for good reason or not, it stinks.
So, think. Are you resolute in your resolution?
Your resolute resolution should be made resolutely in your resoluteness.
But be grateful that if at first you don't succeed you can try, try again.
Take the challenge in stride! Seize the day! Huzzah!!!!!!!!
