I only ever did one resolution: it was a new millennium, the world astonishingly hadn’t ended at midnight from everyone’s VCR thinking it was now 1900, and looking around at the condition of my life at the moment, I could see some things in need of resolving (never mind.)
So, me being me, I decided to do it my own way, with a noun, instead of any verbs. The first thing that came into my head when I was thinking about it that New Millennium Day, was “clarity.”
Seventeen years on, the resolution has served me well. I may or may not be doing better things in my life, but I damn sure ain’t bullshittin’ myself about it the way I had been.
