Resolutions = Promises You’ll Never Keep
Every Year hundreds of thousands of people make promises they will never keep, and though this happens all year round, it is most prevalent on New Year’s eve. There are countries that have already welcomed in the new year, not China, and, no doubt, people who have already broken their resolutions. Asking around it’s hard to find a single person who has managed to keep to such a promise, so I think I’ll stick to searching for needles in hay stacks instead.
It’s been a few years since I’ve openly admitted to a real resolution. Mostly I make them quietly, fully expecting to keep these empty promises, though ultimately forgetting them mere days into the New Year. Perhaps the problem lies in who we are making the promise for. It’s much harder to disregard a promise made to a friend than it one made to yourself, isn’t it? So this year my resolution is to you, anyone that reads this blog. I aim to make a post every day for the next year. Now remember, I may choose to give up at any time, but I have, in the past, made it to around seven months.
If I fail then I will know once and for all that keeping resolutions is not down to personal responsibility. However, if I succeed I will have proved it is and should, if my opinion and wild speculation are taken into account, be nominated for a Nobel prize, in literature or whatever I’m not picky. I’m excited about this new challenge, I had fun last time, mostly, and it’ll feel good to get back in that swing.
