2019? That’s right, I forgot to make resolutions last year. Better late than never, right?
You know, there’s something special about being able to reflect on the past year and everything you did wrong, figure out how to do it better, promise to do it better and then fail miserably all over again. It’s kind of like an American tradition. And I haven’t been appreciative of those enough, so let’s do this.
- Write more blogs – Vigilance has not become me as of late. Call it holiday stress, becoming busy, going on vacation, not writing the blogs a few weeks in advance so none of those excuses matter, etc. it’s just hard sometimes. But I resolve to be more consistent at blogging! Thank you, my fellow reader, for sticking with me.
- Work out and eat healthy – By law I am required to include this resolution. Blah blah blah oh the pounds, I must lose them oh the agony blah blah blah. Alright, next.
- Pick up a new hobby – Which—let’s face it—is probably just going to be more Eldritch Horror. My wife and I like our life the way it is, so there’s not much reason to expand. Maybe a new board game? I dunno. Life is good.
- Look at things in a whole new way – I don’t know what this means, but it sounds fantastic. I can even be a better version of myself while I’m at it. And all while learning that I’m fine just the way I am.
- Do everything I’ve been doing anyway – See? It’s not that hard to make realistic resolutions. I can almost guarantee I’ll keep mine.
Why do we wait for January 1st to switch our lives around? Shouldn’t we try to be better people all the time? Shouldn’t we always try to eat healthy, spend time with our family and all that? It’s like we budget a miniature midlife crisis on the first day of every year!
…This is coming from the guy who listens to Christmas music in the middle of July. We shouldn’t have to limit that either.
Alright! There’s my lovely set of resolutions. I’m sure you have yours—so what are they?
