Heard it in the Hallways: Resolutions

resolutionsThanks to the new year, talk of resolutions fills the halls. “New year, new me,” seems to be the theme of the month.

I am all down for change, and if someone wants to be a better person or accomplish a goal or two, they should go for it. However, why do we wait until the new year to decide it is time for change?

It is not that making resolutions is pointless, but waiting until the start of the new year might be. People make resolutions and goals to make a change in their lives. Some people decide that they need to get fit or eat healthier. Others want to pursue new careers or travel, and that is just great.

The thing that bothers me is that people wait around for the start of a new year to take action.

Resolutions should be made year round, not just on the first of the year. Do not hold back and wait for a new year to step up and make a difference when tomorrow is a new day that is just as suitable for change.

Need a new job? Find one. Want a new look? Cut your hair and go shopping.

As Harold Hill, from Meredith Willson’s “The Music Man,” would say, “You pile up enough tomorrows, and you’ll find you are left with nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays.”
