I typically don’t make any. Don’t get me wrong, they’re cool and everything when you think you can only change your life, develop a good habit, or discover something new one time a year. I love the idea of newness. This is why I’m always finding something new for me to do. If I were to make resolutions, they would be to eat more doughnuts and sleep late whenever it’s possible. But at my age, I know better. At any rate, here’s my advice to you:
Invest in lots of great music that makes you feel something deeper than a repetitive chorus of mindless lyrics. The kind of music that would kill you with humiliation to have someone search through your playlist. I’ve had music like this for years, but it’s only now that I don’t care what people think of the music. I didn’t buy it for them, or buy what they think is cool.
Read. Read. Read. And when you’re done, read some more. (This one always surfaces so if it ain’t broke…)
Take a trip. I always do anyway, but make it someplace you’ve never been. Just to mix things up.
Eat whatever the hell you want. Life is too short to deny yourself anything. Unless it’s detrimental. No one said one cheeseburger was going to kill you. Learn self control. Then eat anything. I do. Of course I eat what I should most of the time anyway…so…I eat what I want too.
Always opt for kindness. In every situation, in every place, at every time. Kindness, kindness, kindness. Even if you’re not the one in the wrong.
