“Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.”

well the new year was rung in last night around midnight and i spent it by working at a youth event called 12 hours of madness where lots of teens come to celebrate the new year. it was a good time for sure but it was definetly really long.
thinking about the new year, it is a custom in north america to make a resolution of something which is going to change or be done differently in a person’s life. i am not personally a fan of this tradition because i think that if something in your life needs to change, why wait for new years?
anyway i think that new years resolutions are overrated. what we need is a resolution to change whatever we need to, when we need to. not being tied to specific dates or occasions, but when we observe a need in our lives, going ahead and taking the steps to change.
there is my thoughts on new years resolutions… what are yours?
Being in love is a good thing, but it is not the best thing. There are many things below it, but there are also things above it. You cannot make it the basis of a whole life. It is a noble feeling, but it is still a feeling… Knowledge can last, principles can last, habits can last; but feelings come and go… But, of course, ceasing to be “in love” need not mean ceasing to love. Love in this second sense — love as distinct from “being in love” — is not merely a feeling. It is a deep unity, maintained by the will and deliberately strengthened by habit; reinforced by (in Christian marriage) the grace which both partners ask, and receive, from God… “Being in love” first moved them to promise fidelity: this quieter love enables them to keep the promise. It is on this love that the engine of marriage is run: being in love was the explosion that started it.
