My 2013 Resolutions

I wrote my last post about New year’s resolutions.  I mentioned that I made several resolutions this year.  I  categorized my resolutions into these categories: writing, wellness, and reading.

Writing

  • I will write everyday.
  • I will start a regular blogging schedule by posting at least once a week.
  • I will write a short story.
  • I will write a review.

Reading

  • I will read 25 books by the end of the year.  
  • I will read books on Social Justice.
  • I will read more books about pacifism.
  • I will read more books on non-violent resistance.

Wellness

  •  I will drink 3-5 cups of tea a week.
  • I will exercise 3-5 times a week.
  • I will go on 3 “prayer walks” a week.
  • I will eat 3 vegetarian meals a week.

What are your resolutions? What are you doing to keep them?

Seven Days Later

We are seven days into the new year.  The loyal eight percent of Americans are on track to keep their resolutions while the rest of us tripped over the starting line.  We all think upon the past year, seeing our successes and failures.  Most of our successes are attributed to who we are or the skills we already have.  This leads us to our failures, So we make resolutions to change:  To be more generous, accomplish professional(or personal) goals, or live a healthier life style.  So we start out the month by establishing a swear jar, a budget, and an exercise regiment. Two months later, the swear jar looks like a miniature bank vault, the budget bleeds red ink, and your bones feel like they’re made of Styrofoam because of many visits to the gym.

Why keep this ritual going every year if so many fail?  Maybe the point of a resolution isn’t to make us better, happier, or more fulfilled people. Resolutions force us to look outside ourselves. They are annual reminders of a greater truth.  We all want  to become greater than who we are.  We all yearn to grow into who we need to become.  Growth must start on the inside and work until it is seen on the outside.

I actually like resolutions and I make several each year.  I keep  resolutions and I break resolutions every year.  However, learning and growing every year is more important than keeping a list.  My next post will include some of my 2013 resolutions.  What are your resolutions? Have you kept them?
