Though the first of January was a couple days ago, I’ve yet to make my resolution. I’ve even yet to decide if I’m going to make one at all. It’s something I toss around in my mind every year–whether to do or not to do–but in the end, it’s always the same. I don’t change.
At least, I don’t change in ways that allow me to see I’ve changed. It’s a slow process, slow and slight, sort of like time itself. Watch a clock, and the minutes never seem to pass. Don’t watch it, and you’re amazed how quickly a day can pass.
Whether I make a resolution or not this year, they have always fascinated me. We make them because we want to prove we can be better, and most times we break them and prove instead that we’ll never be quite perfect.
I’m writing about my own experience with resolutions over at katdish’s site today. Feel free to hop on over there and include your own.
And Happy New Year!
