You didn’t make it in 2013. You didn’t in 2014, either. Why would you in 2015?
Each year we sit down and talk about our resolutions for the year. What you would like to accomplish in 2015. Get fit. Read a book. Play a song on the guitar. Travel. Get a boyfriend. The lists are long, but what we all have in common is that we all believe, for a couple of seconds, that we will make it this year. Because this year will be different. I will be different this year.
When really, all we do is push what we have to do under a carpet. Sometimes life is shitty. Sometimes you have to cry a little and both act and feel crappy for some time. Other times, you have to suck it up and live with the crap you’re in the middle of. Sometimes, dealing with it is the only way out. Resolutions written down on a piece of ancient paper, laying in a glass box, won’t change that. New year or not – we still have to deal with shit. A lot of it, too.
Every year, I end up having accomplished a lot in my life. I’ve learned, laughed, and even cried a little. I’ve been selfish, kind and caring. But I also have things I wished I’d done, but are still left undone – and you know what? That’s fine. There will come a time for everything. I don’t dwell on it – what’s not done will be, sometime. If you want something hard enough, you’ll do it. No matter if it’s a freaking resolution or not. That’s what they all say, huh? Well, we all write new years resolutions, too.
Screw the resolutions. New year or not – you can do it.
