Here's to all of you out in blog-land. Another new year. Do you make new year's resolutions? I used to, but I don't anymore, for several reasons. First, people don't usually keep them, myself included. Second, we tend to make the same ones each year. If we make a resolution over and over and never keep it, what's the point?
The most important reason why is that I don't believe we should try to make positive, healthy changes in our lives just on January first. If something needs to change, why wait till the new year? Why not start when you realize the change needs to be made? I understand a lot of people like the symbolism of starting their new diet, or what-not, on new year's day, but for me, it isn't really important. I know I need to shed some pounds, so I will cut back on my desserts. I don't have any habits currently (like drinking or smoking), and I try very hard every day to be nice to others. So, I guess what I'm saying is that we should make positive changes in our lives on a regular basis, not just because it's new year's day. If I absolutely HAD to make one, it would be to do more random acts of kindness - anonymously - to give that glory to God, not myself. I wish everyone a happy, safe, and productive 2006!
