my annual anti-new year’s resolutions post

The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance. The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you chose.

– Arnold Bennett

This quote pretty much sums up why I don’t do the New Year’s Resolutions thing. I’ve been on that bandwagon before and its always a sure fire way to set myself up for failure, so my current attitude is above. If you wanna make changes or do something new, you’ll do it when you’re damn good and ready and not because the calendar says January 1.

That said, I thought it would be interesting to look back in my blog archives and post the links to prior musings about the new year. So I did. And my past cynical sarcastic self still cracks up my current cynical sarcastic self. Sue me.

2013 wasn’t so great in many ways and yet it was good in others. Yin and yang and all that jazz. Overall though, 2013 can take a hike through a poison ivy invested forest and be eaten by rabid grizzly bears.

Happy New Year y’all. May it be as great as you make it.
