It’s 2010 and whether you have decided to say, “Twenty-Ten” or “Two-thousand and ten” (My choice) or whether you are a computer-type and you are “geeking” on the fact that today is a binary day with 1’s and 0’s– it all really comes down to if you believe that today and the new year that comes with it is a day of celebration and resolve to make changes in your life or just another day in the march of time.
I’m thinking that New Year’s Day is a good day to make resolutions or new intentions to make changes where changes need to be made. You don’t have to make all your resolutions today, you don’t have to begin every new habit today and you don’t have to give up every vice today; but it’s a good day to resolve to make further resolves about your life and situation.
I’m not declaring any new resolutions or intentions for the new year here on this blog today; but I’m resolving that I will make–if not new resolutions; at least continuing with some ongoing resolutions.
Time marches on without any real limitation set by a calendar, so don’t be discouraged if you miss making a resolve today, you have all the rest of the days of the year to make another day YOUR new year day. But today, is as a good a day as any.
“Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols.”
“One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things.”
“Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.”
