New Years...

I know this blog is about 10 days late, you don't have to explain that to me.

I celebrated New Years Eve with a wonderful group of people. There was laughter, fireworks, movies, and I believe a neighbor that was upset with our festivities and tried to quiet us with a couple of shots from his pistol. That however, is not what this post is about. This message is for those that have the varying New Year's resolutions. Quitting smoking, losing weight, saving money, etc. These are all very solid and completely overused promises to yourself that get broken within the first week, sometimes within the first day. Here is my New Year's resolution: I promise to be a better me. Does that mean I will drop everything and go work at an animal shelter for the rest of my life? No. What it means is that I will open myself up to the world. I will be nicer to the ones that I know and the ones I don't know. I will be more forgiving to myself. I will not hold grudges against anyone else. I will give more and love more. By the end of the year, I will know more about myself, my limits, what I like and don't like than I ever have before. This is my New Year's resolution, this is my promise to myself and the world. So, if you need a kind word, or if you just want to say something in response, get my attention somehow.

The opinion is mine, but I am happy to share. Laterz.
