Hello, all. (Bonjour, tous.)
In case you're living in the past: It's 2011 now.
I'm not one to live YOUR life, but I'm opinionated and I think that every person should resolve. You are not perfect, but you try to be (I hope you try to be; but I love your imperfections, don't I?). Yes, you try to be.
So you lie to yourself: Fix all your flaws. Astound yourself.
You can do this.
Resolve to change things you'll never change. Make promises you'll break. Write them down on paper like it's easy to fix yourself so fast and painless.
And then mix them, the lie with the truth (the positive with the negative). Do one thing at a time. Try hard. Take little steps. Have faith. Eat.
This is how you will (how you might) succeed. It's all I've got.
Watch this video of one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite bands that I've been itching to post.
"The New Year" by Death Cab for Cutie
I especially especially especially love this one line, it's the type of lyric that makes me wish to have thought of it before I ever heard it, to have so much depth: "I wish the world was flat like the old days; then I could travel just by folding a map." Oh, oh, oh.
Well, what I'm saying is, be better this year.
Resolve, stretch, dig deep, be drastic, speak, want things, let it go, glitter, be safe, read, see, pray, be a lover and a fighter.
So this is the new year.
