How times have changed! When I was young, New Year’s resolutions were an important event, thought about with real earnest, and made with all good intentions!
Nowadays, people I know seem to pay scant attention to this once-vaulted aspect of New Year! Is everyone self-satisfied, or conversely, do they think it’s an exercise in futility?
This year, I’ve decided to break new ground by making a resolution that isn’t steeped in deprivation. No. This time, I’ve decided to take quite a different tack.
My resolution? To enjoy life more! To relish all the good things: inspiring music, literature, art and the like, as well as those soul-fulfilling happiness like sunshine, fresh air, natural beauty, and great company.
Out with the old ideas of giving up something, or stressing out by trying to break an ingrained habit! I’ll leave that for someone else, that is, if anyone still tries the traditional route.
Happy New Year!
