“What the New Year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the New Year” – Vern McLellan.
It is said that you may be whatever you resolve to be. Nothing relieves and ventilates the mind like a resolution.
As we say adios to another year and get ready to welcome another, let us take a look at some potential resolutions that we will bravely (or tamely) bring to fore.
“I want to laugh more, the laughter that makes you cry and makes your sides ache.” Now that is worth a standing ovation.
“My intention for 2023 is to replace mean thoughts with kind and patient ones.” Keep the applause going.
I stay resolved to take “everything (especially politics) and everyone less seriously and try to be the best person I can.”
How about some idiosyncratic resolutions? Like “I intend to eliminate very and really from my vocabulary”. That is really a very good idea. Oops. Sorry.
I heard about a resolution from a friend which was to have “someone repair the wristwatch his dad bought him for his high-school graduation in 1985, so he can wear it again.” This is truly timeless.
Some of us are charging right at 2023 with angry-rhino determination. Keep the fire in the belly burning.
