resolution 2012


I have always thought that the making of resolutions with the turning of a new year was a bit overrated. I think that the understanding of being able to "turn over a new leaf" and having the opportunity to 'begin again" are hugely important. However, I also think that when you come to a point where you understand that you need to make a big (or little) change in your life, you should do it then, right that moment. Because we are not guaranteed tomorrow, the moment of realization that "something has got to give" should propel you into instant action to make your life what you want it to be. Acknowledging that the definition of making a "resolution" is a firmness of purpose, the quote below is what will guide me to what my purpose is for today. If I am as successful as I am capable of being, then this will also be my purpose all the years that follow...

I tend to agree that the idea of making resolutions only for the new year (and as a result rarely following through with them) is so overrated and ineffective. I think that to make changes, you just have to start immediately, you know?

I agree! There's opportunity for change everyday, but a new year is symbolic in a way that clears the slate and allows you to try again, especially if the last year wasn't so great. Great quote, by the way!
