So what's my New Year's Resolution? For years I had the same one: honesty - to stop lying. Not that I was ever some compulsive liar, weaving tall tales or telling massive whoppers, but I wanted to erase even the "white lies" from my life. You know, when you just can't motivate to meet a friend for plans so you say that something came up instead? Well, now I just tell the truth. Mostly. It took a few years, that one. Then two years ago I resolved to eat more risotto. It was far and away the best New Year's resolution EVER. And it worked! I DID eat more risotto! I don't even remember what last year's was, which is probably just as well. But for 2012, I have the perfect resolution:
Don't worry, I'm not going all minimalist on you. I like stuff, and I like having a lot of it. I'm just tired of having too much of everything, if that makes any sense. I want to be more thoughtful about what I buy, more ruthless about what I get rid of, and more organized with day-to-day shit, both on the job(s) and in my home.
Wish me luck! I wish all of you lots of luck and love and laughter in 2012, and hope you have a great time tonight ringing it in. Happy New Year!
