A Resolution is Simply A Resolution…

There is absolutely nothing wrong with resolutions. In fact, resolution is just a word, and it’s the thought you put behind that word that makes you like it or not. It’s the thought you attach to the word that makes is meaningful or meaningless.

January 1st traditionally marks the beginning of a New Year, and attached to that day you’ll find a lot of meaning. But, for many it marks a time of renewal. To start anew.

For many, the beginning of the year is a convenient time to re-assess one’s goals, to re-evaluate, to re-examine, and to re-flect.

For many it’s a time to renew, reboot, rejuvenate, refresh and to re-try (in case you need to set a goal that wasn’t met in the previous year).

Maybe a good metaphor is a computer. And, the beginning of a New Year is a good time to reboot, to restart, to reload.

Then, a New Year’s re-solution is simply that. A solution with an “re” prefix in front of it. A solution is the answer to a problem.

Re: Let us all re-act. And go forward in the New Year.

Have we not found the ultimate Peace, Love and Happiness?

Then let us make a re-solution. 🙂
