New Years Eve 12/31/2015


Here we are at the end of 2015.  It is New Years Eve and time for resolutions.  Last year I decided to not make any.  Guess I didn’t want the pressure of expectations.  This year is different.  I have a much better idea of what I want to accomplish, and already have the steps to a plan pretty much outlined in my head.  There are only three resolutions and they each have something to do with this blog, each in a different way.  The difference this time is I’m not going to list them.  I have put them in a document and filed it away.  At the end of 2016 I am going to look at them again and honestly assess how well I kept them and whether keeping them (if I did) helped me make the progress I wanted.

Aside from my personal resolutions, I am hoping that 2016 will see a lessening of the craziness that has plagued the world recently.  Of course, 2016 is a presidential election year, so it will probably be crazy anyway, even if it is a different kind of crazy.  I have no idea who I want for president.  I only know I DO NOT want Trump.  As for the others, we’ll just have to see what shakes out.

I want all my friends and family to have a wonderful 2016.  I want those who espouse violence and terrorism to realize they may cause casualties and damage, but those tactics will never convince most reasoning people that their cause is righteous.  I want those who support political extremes in this country; whether they are far left, tea party right, or self-radicalized; to realize that most of the time extreme ideas do not work for society as a whole.  We all need to take the words “moderation in all things” to heart.

Happy New Year to all!  May 2016 be the year you achieve all you desire!
