Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?

I am not sold on the whole New Year’s resolution thing. It seems a little irrelevant to me. Technically, are not our birthdays our New Year? Unless you were born on January 1, it is not really your New Year. Therefore, I have four extra months to think of ways to resolve to be a better person on my birthday. Birthday resolutions. I did make a decision regarding the New Year. What happened in 2008 will stay in 2008. I am letting go. Letting bygones be bygones. I will move forward, work harder, and keep trying to do the best I can. I cannot change the past. In a book by Paulo Coelho he writes, “Remembrance is for the old.” Although I am not old, there are many days when I feel like I am a hundred. It is time for all of that to stop. So, here is to moving and grooving forward. Even through the rough times. No matter how your 2008 went, cheers to a better 2009!

  1. I make birthday and new-school-year resolutions. It makes much more sense to me to get it together after Labor Day than any other time of the year. And my birthday is in mid-August, so I start planning them.
    I do try to make a few resolutions for new year, but it is really just something to do to keep my busy thru winter. I HATE winter.


Hey you! Got somethin' to say?
