New Year's Solutions

I've never been a fan of resolutions at this time of year.  Usually, a resolution is what a person makes to "solve" an old recurring problem (this year, I really am going to quit smoking, eat better, or stop reading Nicholas Sparks novels, etc.).

And usually, a resolution is vague.  As in, I'm going to get healthy!  But, I have no real plan of action of how to do it!!

Despite my cynicism about making NY Resolutions, I do feel the need every end-of-year to come to make some kind of decisions about the year ahead - plans, goals, visions, etc.  2013 has been the year of indecision and immobility.  For me, anyway.  2014 will very likely be the year of's been looming on the horizon now for some time.

I'm not much of a planner...I never really have been.  I've just sort of let things fall into my lap...and well, things have worked out okay for me, most of the time.  Professionally speaking, that is.  But now, I've been having to do some soul-searching and purpose-of-life-looking, and man, that is tough stuff.

What do I want to be when I grow up?

That is probably what I'll spend most of 2014 trying to figure out.  And just trying to keep moving forward.  Anybody else got anything really rad planned for the new year?

  1. I have nothing rad planned for this year, but I loooooove the term "new year's solutions" in lieu of that icky "resolutions" crap. Good for you.

    I hear you on the whole "what do I want to be when I grow up" stuff. If you figure it out, lemme know. :)
