Resolution

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.

Everyone else do that too. Fully embrace the idea that grudges are dumb and friendships are awesome.

In contrast to my post below, I think I'm going to make a NYR. It's not going to be anything too serious; a just for fun kind of thing. Anyway...

I'm going to try and be more adventurous, and have more fun.

What are yours?

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?

I don't either, actually.

But my coworker was the one that brought up the one idea I showed you.

I don't either lol... I completely agree with you. If I want to do something then I will do it. If I need an excuse like New Years to make myself do it then obviously it isn't that important to me......
