Here it is almost 1/1/11 (wow, great date) and time to think about New Year’s resolutions. Or is it?
If you feel guilty about making one, continue reading. If not, stop and just enjoy life.
I resolve to be…
I resolve to do…
I resolve to …
Eat less & lose weight?
Help others more & be kinder, especially to the elderly?
Work harder or find work?
Be more loving?
Be more patient with your children?
Walk the dog every day?
Are we human beings or human “doings”? We are always doing something: singing, eating, performing, hiking, walking, bicycling, eating, sleeping, shopping, blogging, etc. etc.
Think about what is feasible, realistic, or pragmatic for a resolution, if you choose to have one for 2011.
Maybe it would be just better to say: forget it and don’t bother at all! “Eat, drink and be merry”… or see what Hugh Holub over at “Baja Arizona” has to say about resolutions (click here).
I remember a sign I saw back home in Hawaii that says “Smile, enjoy life.”
This sign is usually tacked onto trees or poles along the highways, by unknown, mysterious people (maybe menehune?). For a great photo of this sign see:
Well, maybe it is as simple as that…just resolve to smile more. Or enjoy life more.
Think about a resolution (even it is to strive for world peace and harmony), and resolve to do it even in small steps. Good luck in trying.
Smile & enjoy life!
And Happy New Year to all.
