It’s the beginning of a new year. I’ve moved back in with my parents (as of last night) yet again. Wait for a second because I need to count on my fingers. Yup, this makes the 4th time I’ve moved back in with my parents in my adult life, if you want to be technical about it. Just over a week ago, I moved out and into my RV. Why, then, you may ask, did you move back in with your parents? Yeah; it’s complicated. I’ll have to address that at a later time.
Anyway, it’s the beginning. A new beginning. A fresh start. I’m here, but I don’t have to stay here. The funny thing is that it’s just another day, and I find myself wondering why it matters that the calendar says it’s a new year. But it does matter. Even though I know it’s just another day and think that it is silly to feel different on this day, it does matter. There is just something about the freshness of a new year. We’ve never experienced 2013 before. Maybe that’s it. We’ve experienced Tuesdays. Lots of Tuesdays. And we’ve experienced Januarys. But we’ve never experienced 2013. It’s new in a way that other days aren’t.
And that is probably why people tend to make resolutions. I never have been big on New Year’s Resolutions, but, I don’t know, I guess I feel different this year. I think I want to do it. So I chose my first “resolution” earlier this morning. I want to post a vlog for every day this year. It’s going to be challenging, frustrating, fun, and rewarding, I think. I’d like to resolve to post a blog every day, but I don’t think I would be able to follow through on that. Too many times, I get writer’s block with blogging because I feel like it has to be to a certain standard to be publishable. Not so with video blogs.
I’m thinking about what other resolutions I might make for the new year. What about you? What resolutions are you making or would you like to make (if you actually thought you could follow through)?
