A resolution not to make a resolution
It’s a new year and that is traditionally the time to make resolutions, those pledges you make to yourself that will make you a better person, a cleverer and wittier one, a fitter and healthier body.
Me? I can’t be doing with any of that anymore. I know whatever I promise to do will either never be pursued or will be abandoned after a few weeks.
The resolutions I’ve made, which have never come to fruition, include:
· Enrolling into a French class
· Joining a gym
· Going on a computer course
· Losing weight
· Learning Spanish/Italian/German
· Reading more/watching less TV
· Trying to have more patience
· Walking more
· Cycling more
So, the best option, so as not to disappoint myself again, is to forget about resolutions. That way I can’t let myself down again.
Hold on, though. Isn’t that a New Year’s resolution? And one I can keep?
So, have I made a resolution, or not?
Now I am confused.
