Happy New You


NOTE: THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE MY ENTRY FOR CHALLENGE #10 BEFORE I GOT BOOTED. ENJOY! –B

I’m not really big into these New Year Resolution things. It’s bollocks, I tell you. Bollocks! New Year’s Resolutions, at least to me, are nothing but short-term plans and they, like most short-term promises, are meant to be broken.



Yeah right.

Click click click!

 

I’ll be honest. Year after year after year, I always make these silly
grandiose (and often unrealistic) plans for myself. Sure it doesn’t
hurt to dream however, I’m one of those people who always plan for
things yet nothing ever happens due to so many reasons under the sun.
Lack of motivation is one thing, and my dirty, dirty habit of
procrastination is another.

I’ve had a whirlwind of a life alright with countless highs and lows
but for the most part, none of my experiences were the result of a
"master plan". You see, the more I spend time planning for something,
the more it doesn’t happen. Plans remain just as that — plans.

I’m prefer being spontaneous. I like to do things on my own accord,
when I want it etc. I take a lot of risks and I’m extremely fascinated
with the unexpected and the unknown. Our lives are so fluid and all of
our decisions and actions are influenced by so many things that we
encounter on a daily basis.

I don’t want to live my life with regrets. Regret that I didn’t do this
or I didn’t do that because I got bogged down by a little "plan" I made
earlier in the year. It’s a very bold decision and there are
consequences of course, but one thing I’ve learned over the years is to
try to take responsibility for ALL of my actions.

I’m honestly happier living the way that it is now, take things as they
come on a daily basis. If I make a mistake, I try to learn from them.
If I make the same mistake over and over and over and over, well,
clearly it’s not a mistake, no? Just kidding. ;-)

Enough blather.

Instead of making a new year resolution, I have a single resolution
that I try my darn hardest to abide to all-year round. It’s simple,
really.



It’s simple and it’s not easy but hey, a girl’s gotta do what she’s got
to do. Being a better person involves a lot of things but for the most
part, instead of dwelling on the past, I live for the present,
I embrace change and I look forward to the new and the future. Every
day is a new day and there’s always something new to learn, someone new
to meet, something new to do, etc. I want to enrich my life with new
experiences. Sure it won’t happen simply by staying at home or what
have you in front of the computer the entire day (hah!) but who said
you won’t learn anything online?

But yes, I definitely need to get out there more to improve my quality of life.

In any case, the statement says it all and I’ll leave it up to you to define what a "better person" means.

That’s my year-round resolution. What’s yours?

PS. No, I’m not ready to put down those Marlboro cancer sticks just yet.

I have two things to say: Nan Kempner. Portable oxygen tank.

I love you all!
