2007 is gone, 2008 is here. Each year slips by faster than the last it seems. Maybe to harness the reigns of time, I should write down the things I want to do to better myself as a person. A man’s character is his fate (Heraclitus). This year I want to strengthen my character and in doing so hopefully enrich my destiny. Inspired by Chai.
I resolve to do something for the betterment of the world every day be it giving of my time, my money, or simply an apple to someone hungry, or a prayer to God from the depths of my heart.
I resolve to nurture my mind every day. Nutrients give to us, junk food takes away. Junk TV does the same. I resolve to watch less television and read more and use other more productive ways to spend my time.
I resolve to exercise regularly. Not for vanity but for the depletion of adrenaline and the way it strengthens my heart and regulates my pulse.
I resolve to eat healthy. My body harbors my soul and is one of the various manifestations of me. I resolve to put in my body that which betters me. I want to eat significantly less meat and significantly more organic locally grown food.
I resolve to read daily. Not just legal memos and briefs but books, magazine, stories. Its the art that I aspire to and through reading I grow intellectually and artistically.
I resolve to write daily. It may be blogging, or working on my novel or simply a note to myself in my journal before I sleep.
What do you resolve?
