'Tis the season to make promises to yourself that you just won't keep.
I've always wondered, does anyone feel anything, but guilt in a few weeks after the bar that they set too high comes crashing down?
Or is this really a great time of year for everyone? You know, self reflection, a clean slate, a new beginning for everyone that unites us all into one big hopeful crowd?
Maybe I'm a bit cynical. I never have made major New Years Resolutions. I take this time of year to look back on how quickly the last year has sped by, shed a tear when they do the montage of all the celebrities that have passed away this year, and then try to look at the New Year as a fresh start. I have high hopes, but no real concrete resolutions.
For the most part, I live my life without regrets. I don't spend too much time on over analyzing any failures, rather seeing it's best that I not spend too much time wallowing in negativity. It's from my mistakes that I have learned the most, after all. I do look around and laugh at all the resolutioneers crowding the gym and filling their carts with produce that they won't eat. And I do scoff at the plethora of weight loss solution commercials that crowd the airwaves.
Are you making resolutions this year? Does it help? Maybe I should take this more seriously!?!
Taking a little time to play with words, to play with food, and just to play!
