It has become a bit cliché to write New Year resolutions because everybody keeps telling me nobody sticks to them. Well… I couldn’t disagree more. This year in particular, I want them to mean something.
One year ago, I started fresh. I decided to take control of my life again, and to be happy instead of miserable. It was tough. It was difficult to fight against the demons of my past but with discipline and friends’ advice, I made it through in one piece.
For 2012, I made a few resolutions I wish will help me stay strong and focused, not only as a writer, but also as an individual.
I choose to not waste time with unreliable and untrustworthy friends. I don’t even call them friends anymore.
I choose to not waste time hanging out with people who don’t bring me anything.
I choose to not let alcohol steer my nights out.
I choose to pray more and give thanks for all the good I received from God.
I choose to stay true to myself, no matter what.
I know 2012 will be a great year, and I know it won’t be the end of the world for anybody. 2012 will only be the beginning of something great, you’ll see.
