new years resolutions.

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.
