Resolutions, Resolutions…

It’s only too tempting to go without a post about the New Year, but for lack of any worthwhile topic to write about, I will succumb to pressure and write something about the New Year, just like everyone else already has.

Resolutions, shmesolutions.   I was never one to make them, sorry.  I’ve always thought that resolutions are like your ex-husband: useless and unreliable.
For a time, I tried making a few resolutions to ring in the new year, but I think I broke them as soon as I made them.  It is true, old habits die hard, and it’s much more comfortable to keep doing what you always have.  Change is stressful, and fear of the unknown is the most dreadful.
Don’t get me wrong, though.  I have nothing against those who make new year’s resolutions.  I think it’s admirable for them to come up with a list of goals and stick to them.  I guess that’s what’s wrong with me: I don’t have the guts to stick to them, let alone make them. 
Anyway, I don’t want to start the new year on a negative note, so I’ll just stop right now.  Ok, maybe I’ll resolve to be a little more optimistic this year.   Cheers, everyone!  Have a happy 2012.
