Savanna, for one, doesn't seem to like New Year's Resolutions. I'm not exactly sure why, and I won't claim to speak for her, but there it is. And it's got me thinking.
You know, New Year's Resolutions are great. It's the whole starting over fresh thing, and many many
people do it on New Year's, so there's almost this sense of community. The "I'm not alone" thing. And that's great!
But something important to realize is that you don't have to wait for a certain time to be a better person. The resolution to be better is not reserved for the New Year, or the start of school, or that new job, or any other momentous occasion. It can be tomorrow. It can be now. It can be on a random rainy Wednesday in the middle of June, where you decide, "Yes. I'm going to do it. I'm going to be better."
So, with the fact in mind that any day is in fact a perfect day to make resolutions, here are some of mine:
- post at least once a week on this blog
- go to Mass at least twice a week
- get better at finishing tasks
And with that in mind, I've got some history waiting for me.
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
