Nope, not doing it and you can’t make me. I’m not going to make empty promises to myself, call them “resolutions” and continue to do exactly what I have been all the years before me.
I broke the resolution chain last year and it’s staying broken. Instead of promising to do something, I choose to go a different route.
I have a friend, Dana, who inspired me to do this. Her way to start the new year is to pick a word to represent you for the entire year. Last year, my word was “perseverance”, as I was going through a lot.
In 2015, there are some new adventures that I am undertaking, including the Pink Herald, so I have chosen the word, “genesis” to see me through this upcoming year. Since genesis means “beginning”, I cannot think of a more suited word.
Next December, I will reflect on how well “genesis” fit this year. For the moment, I am excited to see what 2015 has to offer and how different things could be.
I ask you. Are you still going to pick yet another “resolution” or will you choose a word to represent you instead?
