I Resolve…


In the past there have been numerous years where I made resolutions and years where I have resolved not to make any.  This year I am not wavering one iota on which direction to take.

Most of us make them year after year, I think with good intent, but the “I resolve to” doesn’t stick for long.  It probably takes more time to make the resolution then we actually resolve to do it.  Therefore, I ain’t about to make any promises to do anything.  This way, I am off the proverbial hook and won’t suffer the immense guilt of having lied to myself yet again.

So this year I will not resolve to lose weight, get in shape, read more or get off my ass to attack my Project List that has been is sitting undisturbed on the desktop of this contraption I am typing on for many months.  I won’t be a better husband; dad, brother or friend, and I won’t make any plans for the future or add any items to my Bucket List (which at present doesn’t have anything on it anyway). I won’t clean out the garage or the basement and make trips to the dump with any of the tons of useless crap The Nancy and I have accumulated and held on to for the past dozen years. The paint I purchased two years ago for the basement floor will remain sealed and I won’t tackle any of the rooms I have thought about repainting for at least that long. I will continue to procrastinate at every opportunity, and any thought I have given to be more detail oriented will be totally and absolutely ignored.

Well, I don’t know about you, but this definitely makes me feel better than I ever had about the prospects for success in this New Year.  With no goals and no expectations, I think 2013 may well end up being The Best Year Ever.

And that is all I have to say about that…
