Resolved, to live with all my might, while I do live. I really like that resolution from Jonathan Edwards. And with the beginning of the year almost upon us, I am sure that many people are resolving to do something with their lives in 2015. If you read his resolutions, they make most of our resolutions seem inconsequential. I have never been big on resolutions for the new year because waiting on a specific instance of time to change your life for the better seems like a waste. Shouldn’t we resolve at any point in time to be a better us? What steps am I going to take today, next month and the month after that? Nothing changes if nothing changes.
Of course I have trouble understanding many of the simple things that others enjoy. Holidays have been a mystery to me for as long as I can remember. January 1st is just another day. Does this day really signify anything of importance? Yes, I know feeling this way about holidays makes me a horrible monster so I won’t talk about Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, July 4th or any other day. And I will accept the label you want to put on me.
