“I don’t do New Year’s resolutions,” she said. “You always end up breaking them and then you feel like a loser and…just…just…nothing…NOTHING good comes of it.”
My friend got me thinking (always dangerous), and I wonder if the problem isn’t with the one resolving, but with the resolutions themselves. They always seem to center around controlling the physical, when ‘physical’ is the most transitory aspect of existence. Maybe the focus could be widened. Or blurred. Or spangled… 2016 will never come again. This is your one chance.
- Get carried away.
- Get swept off your feet.
- Notice others’ joy.
- Strike the G-word from Guilty Pleasures.
- If you haven’t found your tribe, be one.
- Watch the sky or the sea; they have the power to amaze.
…and wear sequins inappropriately and unapologetically, because life can always use more sparkle and glitter.
