It’s a week late but that’s because I just decided on it now and then it took me ages to find an accompanying image. The reason for the image? My resolution is a little simple. Simple, in my opinion, is the best way for a resolution and for a lot of things in life but in case people are disappointed I thought a good image would soothe that feeling.
I only have one resolution this year and it is more a way of thinking. I am a realist and when it comes to discussing myself, probably a little of a pessimist. I am happy but not necessarily optimistic. This is probably due to my need to be prepared for everything: hope for the best, prepare for the worst kind of thing.
But I think it will be good to have a more (and I hope to cause no offence here) but to have a more child-like outlook on things happening to me. One of my traits is that I can usually see the best in things that have happened to me, good or bad. However, when it comes to things not yet known or completely planned and set in stone, I’m doubtful. Realism sets in and I have to try and work out what could happen and what I should do for each eventuality. This is realism bordering on obsession I know, but I can’t help it.
This is where my resolution comes in, to be more optimistic; to not try and think of every bad thing that could happen because it is ‘realistic’ because frankly it detracts a little from my present, which is pretty darn good right now. After all, I am doing what I love and loving what I do so I shouldn’t be so worried. What happens, happens.
So that’s my resolution for 2013: be more optimistic.
As for things I want to do this year? Well I’m adding those to a ‘to do’ list rather than a resolution list. It seems more active and more likely to actually get done by me than a resolution.
