Although I don’t believe that there is anything magical about New Year’s resolutions and that people should constantly strive to improve their lives without limiting it to a once-a-year thing that falls on December 31st, I find great joy in making New Year’s resolutions. It’s a good idea to stop and take stock of things and adjust our trajectories now and again, and New Year’s is just as good as any other arbitrary date.
Plus it seems to be trendy this year not to make New Year’s resolutions. Being the stubborn contrarian that I am, I’m going to do it anyway.
What has 2009 brought for me?
Overall, pretty good. I must say, this isn’t the way I planned on everything playing out. I wish I made more money, and I wish my girlfriend and I could travel more, and I wish she didn’t have to go to work at a job she doesn’t like. But I suspect that will be a story for 2010.
For 2010, I’m making a few resolutions:
Well, I guess that’s pretty much it. When you’re setting goals, it’s important to go into insane detail about them. I’ll spare you all my rambling daydreams and write them down privately. But, well, I’d like to come back to this post next year and see how I did.
So hold my feet to the fire, and make sure I make an effort to make these goals a reality.
I hope you all have a great New Year’s. And I hope we all have a great 2010!
