New Year Resolutions

Last night at a New Year’s Eve party my friends were asking each other what their New Year’s resolutions were. For some reason I didn’t feel like I could boil it down to a one-liner so I just said “to each more green vegetables”. But later as I thought it over I realized that if there could be only one goal for 2007 that would be it.

I’m not one to actually make resolutions. If I need to change something I change it now, I don’t need a special date to do it. And I also don’t have a lot of interest in promising myself that I will change things that I think I might not actually change. What was it that Yoda said? “Try not. Do…or do not, there is no try.” And that’s it for me. I don’t want to “try” to change things, I just want to change them or skip the stress. Trying sucks.

But truly there are things I do want to change this coming year. And I wish they were all simple. But there are many, and they have layers of complexity and they are not all going to be easy to change. So I will pick a few of them as goals for the first few months of the year, and I will go from there. But the first thing I’m going to do is make sure that I go buy some broccoli, that’s green, right?
