A New Year

Filed under: General — writely so 365 @ 10:19 AM

I’m sitting on my eighth floor balcony wrapped in a blanket, drinking a cup of hot chocolate and watching the fireworks as the New Year comes in.  Below the cheers from the crowd harmonizes with the honking of car horns and I sit here wondering, what will the new year bring?  Do people truly realize what they’re celebrating?  How many resolutions will be broken within the first few days of the new year? 

I stopped making resolutions a long time ago because I found that there was too high of an expectation associated with them.  Not mine but others.  Ever notice when you make new year’s resolutions others will ask you about them? And as soon as you break one of them they’re right there to call you on it.  Personally I don’t need that kind of pressure.  So instead I’ve taken to live my life by a few principles, respect, ambition, determination, and focus.  I find this a lot easier to do than to make new resolutions year after year.  By living my life by these principles I stay true myself.  How do you stay true to yourself?
