New Year and resolutions. They go hand in hand. Think of all that hopeful well wishing going on globally. People pondering on what it is that's going to make them a better person - making resolutions that this year will be the one when things will change.
Statistically, by and large, many of those hopes do not come to fruition. Why do we do this to ourselves over and over again when Jan 1 ticks over?
I like to think that this pattern continues because we have an aulteristic vision that if we change ourselves we can be more for the ones around us.
This year rather than naming lots of resolutions I am going to think about being 'resolute'.
Resolute - adj. Firm in purpose or belief, steadfast, firm or determined; unwavering, steadfast.
This year I would like to be steadfast and determined. They are strengths I would like to develop. If I concentrate on them then maybe those 'wishful thinkings' may play out through the year
