Growing up in the Caribbean, that famous expression “new year, new rule,” was a must at the start of a new year. I am certain it is still being said by people, though often for fun purposes.
Personally, I have no rule really for the new year, but I find it kind of funny, and figure, since this is my first post for 2012, I might as well use it. So, if you find no real rule in this post, forgive me.
Often another “R” word makes itself ubiquitous during a new year too – “Resolution.” Personally, if you ask me what is my resolution for 2012, I will tell you it is to not make a resolution. So in clearer terms, “My new year’s resolution is no resolution whatsoever.” Yeh, I know I am sometimes funny like that. 🙂
So, today, I woke up rather late, but made it to a place of worship, met a few familiar faces, and was happy to begin the new year on a peaceful note. The day was one of fun conversations, laughter, eating together, and the fun part – trying to complete a major puzzle with a friend. Now that was good enough for me.
As you can tell, my post is as simple as that: My new year began positively, easy-going, and relaxing. Hopefully, 2012 will unfold with me reminding myself to S.E.Y.!!! To say an eternal YES to myself mentally, thereby keeping a positive composure no matter what. No, this is not a resolution, it is a personal daily task with which I have employed myself in the latter part of 2011, and to which I seek to devote time and effort as long as I live.
Do you have a resolution, or maybe just a plan, or better yet, do you have a rule, if you feel like sharing them, that would be nice. Whatever the case, I wish you well in your life’s journey.
Be blessed today! (Disclaimer:) – it is still January 1st for me, but wordpress finds it’s Jan. 2nd. Oh well, whatever WordPress. 🙂
