A word on Resolutions

We are still wiggling around in the New Year trying to get used to the fit of 2015. Just a month ago where were wearing 2014 like a pair of old shoes that some were ready to toss in the trash and others wanted to hang on to. Is it going to be a good year or a bad one? Maybe in between?

It is the great unknown that stretches before us. To put structure and order to this scary bit of new time many make resolutions. I will lose weight, I will write that book, I will stress less… the hopes and plans for the coming days stretch on and on.

That is not to say having a resolution is a bad thing. It is always good to have a plan. But a plan with no planning is just a wish. There is a difference between I will and I wish.  Now is the time to take steps to make sure those resolutions happen, rather than just kind of hope things will come to pass.

Make sure you have asked yourself how you plan to accomplish your resolution and not just what you wish to do.

Once upon a time there was a woman who was a writer. She was either cursed or blessed from birth to be so and there was much debate on which it was. One day a very discouraging (and not very original) person told her not to give up her day job. The woman smiled and said that was a wonderful idea. Following the unwittingly clever advice of her critic, the woman found a job working nights, which left her days free to write. Even better, the night job had an unusual schedule which packed two weeks worth of work into one, so the writer was able to have every other week off to sit on her front porch, daydream, and of course write. However, working at night and writing during the day left little time for sleep, so the poor writer occasionally went a little mad, but she decided it was an acceptable price to pay to be able to continue following her curse-blessing. Also she likes tea. :)
