My New Year’s Non-Resolution

I’ve never really been good with New Year’s resolutions.  I don’t keep them, and then I end up feeling guilty for not keeping them!  Who needs that sort of angst to start off a new year!

I’ve committed to a non-resolution in 2012.  Thought I’d make a Wordle to show you what my non-resolution looks like in that buzzing hub of activity called my brain.  P.S., I love Wordle!  

But for those who need something more structured, here goes: 

SOLIDARITY WITH NON-RESOLUTIONISTS WORLDWIDE
(Approved by Embrace the Struggle (ETS) on January 1, 2012)

I, Embrace the Struggle,

DEEPLY CONCERNED by the presumed importance given to New Year’s resolution research and development (R & D) in late December and early January of each year;

HAVING SEEN how much time is wasted committing to resolutions that no sane person can keep;

HAVING HEARD the cries of failure from the hapless ones who committed unwisely to such courses of action; and

HAVING NOTED the pros and cons of liberating oneself from such a burden,

RESOLVE:

1.     To refrain from creating New Year’s resolutions and to restrain myself from slipping into such timesucks due to peer pressure and warped self-talk.

2.    To repudiate any attempt to alter my non-resolution mindset and to cultivate, at my own pace, the concepts, ideals, and values presented artistically in the Wordle above.

3.    To firmly support all other non-resolutionists in their pursuit of a life free from New Year’s resolutions and filled with peace, patience, and positivity.
