We’ve all done it; made resolutions bonded by the power of a clock that strikes twelve times at midnight of a New Year. It’s all well-meaning to attempt to change, but to launch that change at a time when perfect strangers, in drunken revelry try to maul you, is just bad timing. Your going to fail and hopefully you’ve kept these resolutions to yourself.
Besides the word resolution as defined in Merriam Webster means: the act of finding an answer or solution to a conflict, problem, etc.. The word that you mean to use is solve, which means: to find a way to deal with and end (a problem).
I vote to amend the date for transformation to the second day of the New Year and not the first. By then your head is clearing up, the pressure is off, and no one cares what you want to change in your life since
they have been silenced by their own shame in not keeping their own hopelessly flawed resolutions.
So, worry not about starting anything on the first of any month, much less the first of any new year. You have a few more days to shamelessly act out and lie to yourself that the first day of the New Year you will be reborn like the Phoenix through the fires of a night of professionally making an ass of yourself.
Cut yourself a break as well as, the rest of us who are tired of hearing what you need to change in yourself to get the life that you deserve. The last part of that sentence is a lie in itself. What you deserve is a healthy dose of common sense to go after what ever you think will make you happy and rely less on the statement itself, which sounds like the drunken ravings of a Narcissist!
“Happy New Year”
