I'm not really one for New Year's resolutions, since I think it implies that I have to wait for a special occasion to make a positive change. But I like how the new year gets people talking about what changes they're making in their lives. One continuing change that I've been making and enjoying is revisiting old friendships and making peace with old enemies. The times in my life when I've been able to take a truly hostile relationship and turn it back into a friendly one have been some of my happiest, though I did once get me publicly lambasted as a "turncoat" for befriending a political rival. Another time, it almost got me shot. Still, it's a policy that's averaged out to being a good idea.
Is it weird that I don't make New Year resolutions? I haven't for a really long time. I figure if I'm going to do something, then I'm going to do it. I don't need a new year to do that. My mom doesn't make them either. That's actually where I got the idea from. It just seems like anytime I tell someone that i don't make NYRs they freak out. I don't know, I find it rather funny. Is there anyone else out there that doesn't make NYRs or is it just my mom and I?
