Resolutions? Maybe Not
The new year has started.
Yet, at a time when many around the globe have came up with their new year resolutions, I find myself with a blank piece of paper.
My new year resolutions have yet to be thought through. In fact, I have a feeling that 2018 will be the first year that I do not limit and structure my life to a piece of paper pinned up on a board.
The more that I ponder on what exactly I should write down, the more I find myself inclined not to write anything.
For years, I have raised my hopes every start of the year with the prospect that ‘hey, this year will be the year I get X done’. And for years, I have disappointed myself time after time.
What will make this year any different? I can already see it: I will jot down some genuine goals and I will let myself down half-way through the month.
So maybe this year I will make no resolutions.
Maybe this year, I will focus on being.
Maybe this year I will just allow myself to enjoy life and be present in the moment without worrying about anything else.
Maybe this year, I will finally live.
