New Year Resolutions, Fah! I never make them. After All, who really keeps them for more than a month or two and what is a resolution, when it comes right down to it, other than a promise you make to yourself to stop doing something you, in all honesty, like or love to do, or to start doing something you’d rather not.

I Resolve not to make Resolutions.

Rather, I will set forth from this fresh place in the year with Hope to Light my way, with Joy in my Heart and Jubilee in my Step to make the Journey a Happy one, with an Open Hand and Willing Desire to Offer any Kindness I May during the expedition, and with Peace in my Spirit, knowing that every mile I walk, hop, swim or ride in kangaroo style, Shall be Guided and Protected by the Source from Whom all Life and Blessings Flow.

This may sound like a load of poppycock, to some; yet, with this Source of Inspiration, Blessed Harmony and Integrity, I can walk Straight and True to Accomplish whatever I set out to do. No mountain will be too high and no forest too dark; no seething ocean will be too angry and no valley too shadowy to keep the Light that Shines before me and over me from Glimmering out across the Path. And should I stray into the undergrowth, seeking heaven only knows what, I can never go so far as to be lost from Sight.

This, then, is my Resolve. This is the Foundation upon which I shall Stand. And this is the Promise I Gladly, Willingly, make to myself this year, every year.

What New Year’s Resolution will you make?

  1. AMEN! I don’t make resolutions either. I just reflect upon the previous year, see my growth, see my “need to make improvements” and set my Mind to do just that. And to do so with Light in my Heart, Love in my Soul, and Gentleness in my eyes. πŸ™‚


  2. Grand like a ballroom that was! I resolve to do some stuff and then claim that was what I was going to do all along. I resolve to be lazy as well.


  3. “poppycock”? hell no. sounds like a good and true mantra for all of life. this is what we should all be aiming for. i resolve to do the same. bob
