I've often wondered who it was that resolved in making New Years Resolutions a new year's tradition. I've often wondered how many individuals resolve to keep the resolutions they make each year. Do I? Do You? Hmm.
So that I would more fully understand the meaning and commitment of a resolution, I looked it up in the dictionary.
1. Something decided on.
2. Act of resolving or determining.
3. Power of holding firmly to a purpose.
5. A formal expression of opinion
Okay, does that mean that we resolve to make up our minds to be better in the future? To be firm in carrying out a purpose? To do what we meant to do, last year, but didn't get it done? To stand by an opinion and follow through, no matter what?
I pondered and I considered and finally, when all was resolved, I decided a tea party would be much more fun. There is no rhyme or reason to consider here. I just simply resolved to begin each day with a smile and a tea party with a special friend - my imagination.
Have a Happy New Year, everyone.
