New Year’s Resolutions

“Fuck a resolution.  Never wait till tomorrow to make yourself a better person.” –  Me

The above quote was my Facebook status on 123110.   I kept asking people what their resolutions were, and I got the usual answers — stop smoking, eat better, spend more time with family.  

 Someone then told me his goal for the new year was to be a better person.  I asked him why he needed to wait till tomorrow. 

January 1st is a special day.  It’s the first day of the first month of a new year, and a perfect time to start doing something that will enhance your life, enrich your health and contribute to the watering of your soul.  But I’m gonna tell you a secret.   While January 1st may look pretty, it’s really not any different than July 15th or September 21st or December 17th.  

Hell, you can choose any day of the year to be the first day of your new life.  December 6th?  November 9th?  March 28th!   It doesn’t fucking matter, because it’s up to YOU, not the calendar. 

If you don’t like it, change it…. TODAY.   Regardless of what date it is. 

Just some food for thought.  Hope everyone had as wonderful a new year as I did.  Cheers to more sunshine in 2011!
