Resolutions

Yesterday my son made a light-hearted remark about how he ‘couldn’t wait for January 1st’, a feeling that many people are sharing right now, so, completely understood.

No! I told him.

On January 1st, everything does not change because it is January 1st.

Viruses do not disappear, and things (any things) do not change for the better just because the clock strikes midnight on a certain day of the calendar.

Resolutions do not work either, just because it’s a certain date on the calendar.

Resolutions work when you resolve to make something happen, to begin changing something, today.

Right now.

That’s the only date and time that matters.
