Jenn from, You Know â€¦ that blog?,
hosts Sensational Haiku Wednesday. This week’s theme is:
I have resolved NOT
to resolve just to resolve.
Change is not a fad.
In 1996 I resolved not to make New Year’s resolutions. That is the only New Year’s resolution I have ever successfully kept. As a rule, I am much better off instigating changes as they become necessary in my life rather than at a “fashionable” set time.

I love it Quilly. I don’t make new resolutions I just make the little changes too as they become necessary.
Stacie — I am more apt to successfully follow thorugh if I change through conviction or necessity.
Stoically stated, sister! 😉
I don’t make them either, only because I know full well I’ll never keep them. I do have a lot of things I sure would like to accomplish this year though…
Happy New Year! (and being late is totally ok!! Just happy to have you on board)
Jenn — I fail enough without setting myself up.
Gigi — I guess that makes us wise. 😉
It’s a small thing, but I want to learn to knit… so I figured it would be a nice New Year Resolution. Usually, I’m totally with you on the resolving to not resolve bandwagon.
Karen — ah, that’s a different kind of resolution. I was referring to the kind of resolutions that require one to change his/her nature.
True change is not a fad it is improvement on ones self you do it only for you.
Amanda — I won’t argue that. What I am saying is making a resolution because it is the “day to do so” rather than a conviction is a worthless exercise.
That’s a deep one.
Church Lady — apparently too deep. a couple commenters want to drown me for it!
I resolve to love and cherish Thom forevermore!
Thanks to him, I finally received Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor — A Novel by Lisa Kleypas, a souvenir Seattle solid milk chocolate bar and a ‘Washington Ferries’ postcard !!
Thanks to Thom you received it? I mailed that! Pft!
Too funny. You’re probably smarter than the rest of us!
Becca — or more jaded.
Change is not a fad, it’s a parasite.
Doug — please tell me you aren’t referring to socks and underwear.
I don’t do resolutions, either. Sometimes it’s good to sit down and assess goals and course correct, but so right that change isn’t a fad we should only think about in January.
Thank you, Barbara, that was my point exactly.
I like the way you think! Happy New Year!
