So, we all [probably] made New Year’s Resolutions. How are they going for you? Anyone forget about them yet? I usually get to about February or March and just give up. Not always on purpose. Sometimes I just forget or get busy and haven’t been doing it long enough for it to become a habit yet.
Once, though, I tried something that only lasted a few weeks. I don’t even think I made it out of January. I wanted to wish Happy Birthday to everyone one of my Facebook friends. Let me tell you, there are a lot of birthdays during the year [or just January]. It wasn’t exhausting, I just felt bad if I got busy and missed a day or a person and nervous if I hadn’t spoken to the person since grade school.
Now, though, I can’t imagine trying it with the political sphere someone might think I’m trying to spread some diabolical message.
This year, I resolved not to have any resolutions. Instead just try to take each day as it comes. Maybe work on a few self-improvement projects, but if they weren’t resolutions, I didn’t feel the guilt when I lapsed. At least, that was the theory.
So far, I haven’t really done much different. 2019 has been a cold one and I’ve spent my free time under a blanket reading and writing. Not a bad way to start the year. Though, I did shoot a pretty decent score [for me] in archery this year. So far so good, I guess.
Plus, I don’t feel bad for forgetting someone’s birthday because let’s be honest, I’m going to forget a lot of birthdays, even when Facebook reminds me. Because I’ll see the notification and think, “I should write something” then a notification under it for a funny meme and then I’m lost in the void of the interwebs.
