It occurred to me that for an author with a fictional island called Resolution, perhaps I needed to devise some for 2012.
But then I decided to approach the New Year period the same way I approached this Christmas. When asked (many times) what our plans were, my answer was simply – ‘The plan is to have no plans.’ I have to say; it worked superbly. I didn’t cook, clean, entertain, or over eat. It was peace – pure peace, and quality time with those I loved.
So, riding high on this triumphant experience, my New Year’s Resolution is to make no resolutions. I will simply let my yes be yes, and my no be no. In fact, I consider that this is the very best way to be.
One thought on “Time for Resolutions.”
I always appreciate your wise approach to life.
I’ve got to say, I’ve tried making plans with the opposite approach in mind. People were nagging me to map out 5-yearly goals, write full homeschooling plans at the beginning of each year, etc. Didn’t work for me at all. There must be room for the impromptu and unexpected surprise developments. I like your resolution.
Hope 2012 will be great for you 😀
