Well here we are a whole new year to grow to change to stay the same.  It is whatever you choose to do.  It is your life and that is the greatness of the new year.  You decide.  I have heard the jokes about starting with your New Year's resolutions and then quitting after a week, hey again, your choice. 

res·o·lu·tion

/rezəˈlo͞oSHən/
noun

1. a firm decision to do or not to do something.

Personally, I didn't really make any kind of resolutions.  I did decided to try to be more patient with people and stay out of the drama as much as possible.  I try to stay away from drama, but it follows me and the next thing I know I'm sucked in.  Although, I wouldn't call these resolutions I would call them my try tos.

try

/trī/
verb
1. make an attempt or effort to do something.

I have realized over the last year that we are the only person that can change ourselves.  So why bathe in the negativity when you can bathe in positivity.  So again another one of my try tos this year.

Why make a firm decision when you don't know the outcome?  I would rather make an attempt and be pleased when something happens or is accomplished rather than be disappointed when it is not.

I know for some this may be a cop-out but in my head it fits perfectly.

So whatever you decided to do stick with it or don't, make a firm resolution or try to.

I just hope you had your black-eyed peas yesterday (I ate a whole can, it was my  dinner, who couldn't use some prosperity).
