January 18

Comments Off on January 18


It’s still January and you may have already forgotten your new year’s resolution. Don’t despair! Resolve to always be resolving. That sounds terrible, but it’s actually sort of liberating. You don’t need a specific day of the year to start to change your life. You can resolve to do something differently anytime. And you can decide to do these things for an hour, a day, a week. Then see if you want to continue. Vowing to overhaul your life on January 1 and trying to stick with the changes forever is a tall order. A resolution need not be punishing. It doesn’t have to involve curbing appetites or behaviors unless you want it to. And the resolution doesn’t need to be big. It can be small and boring and meaningful only to you. There’s always a clean slate. There’s a blank canvas ahead. How will you fill it?

What does it mean to you to resolve to always be resolving? How can you apply your thoughts about this?
