new year's resolutions

I’m not one to make new year’s resolutions. They always seem destined to disappoint and cause guilt. Who needs that kind of baggage on top of the everyday problems we face. So I choose to refrain from causing any extra mental hardship.

I’ve always thought that if we are living our lives with good intentions and are striving to make the most of each day, then resolutions to improve our lives are unnecessary. Just keep doing what you are doing and you should improve your life without really trying or needing the extra boost that a promise to yourself would provide.

So if you insist on making a new year’s resolution, how about making one that promises that you won’t have to make a new year’s resolution next year because this year you were as perfect as you could be. Works for me.
