It’s always strange waking up on the first of a new year. You think things will have changed but nothing has. I can imagine the number of people who woke up this morning and got on with their New Year resolutions.
Diets, give up smoking, stop drinking, save money, start a family, get a new job, whatever people choice to do. I didn’t pick anything. There was nothing I can think of that I want to achieve this year. I guess that makes me boring but no one has actually asked me so I haven’t had to make anything up.
I guess I would have said that I wanted to go on a diet and that one with the shakes I had seen on the TV the other day was what I was going to do.
Or maybe, I might have said that I wanted to take up a real difficult hobby like leather or metal working.
How long can you wait to decided what your resolution is going to be? How did it all come about anyway and why is there pressure to have one?
I don’t know. I guess I should just pick in case I’m asked. Someone at work is bound to want to know.
So, my 2020 resolution will be to give up buying books for the year.
That’s harsh and different but useful to me. I have a library of books to read and not buying any new ones will save some money that could be nice to use to go on holiday with.
