So I propose a revision to the New Years resolution fiasco that we all to some extent have fallen into. Really I’m surprised that Hallmark has not found a way to capitalize on this matter in the same way they have taken over Valentines Day. I digress, here is my proposal. Pick one of these:
1. THE THROW OUT NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS ALTOGETHER APPROACH. This is the realist approach for you theologians. Obviously last years methodology was worth something because you made it to 2007. So why change anything at all?
2. THE CHANGE THE NEW YEARS RESOLUTION to the ______(INSERT SOME OTHER DATE) RESOLUTION. This is the pacifist approach. Perhaps the hoopla of Thanksgiving and then the Joy of Christmas and assembling and disassembling trees and gifts is just to much for us to take a serious approach to new years resolutions. And then you have the countdown of New Years Eve its all to much. So maybe we should move them to May or June.
3. RESOLVE TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT EVERY DAY. Consider this:
Option 3 is the most responsible and truthful direction. I however am opting for option 2 because I just like the idea of throwing people off about new years resolutions in the middle of spring.
