The New Year’s Resolutions (SGBHC #15)

It is that time of the year the gym becomes overcrowded with the Resolution folks but I am OK with this.  I know come February they will abandon their resolutions and peace will once again descend on the gym and it will not be a fight to find a treadmill or a parking space.  It is almost like resolutions come with an expiration date.  The problem with New Year’s resolutions is that once made, the very first slip up tends to negate the resolution for a full year.  I ascribe more to the sentiment of  ”I think in terms of the day’s resolutions, not the year’s.” of Henry Moore.  I awake each day resolving to accomplish certain tasks and look neither forward nor back but treat each day unto itself.  Of course, I slip up with my resolve but I have only to wait until tomorrow to get that burst of energy that I can do it.

Fitness is one of the top 10 New Year’s resolutions made which accounts for the crowding at my gym.  When I joined my gym 4 years ago, I did make a resolution to not make excuses and if I did slip up, not to let the excuses of yesterday impact today.  Just go!  Just do it!   There have been times where I have not exercised as much as I typically do because of lack of time but I have always managed to go at least once a week and once that calendar lightens up, I go back to my normal routine.  I will go today and want to tell the unfamiliar faces, “No excuses!” but I won’t since I want their treadmill :) .

However much I dislike resolutions for the New Year, I can’t help but reflect upon the year, where I have been and where I am going.  It is the reflection that typically occurs on birthdays in particular the decade milestones.  The more I understand what constitutes my personality, what I value, and what brings me joy, the more I realize I am but one person with various appearances and disguises of self that I display to the world.  If I had a totem animal perhaps it would be a chameleon blending in with my surroundings and quickly adapting to change.  I expect this year will be much as the past year but maybe my garage and basement will get organized and cleaned out.  Sounds like a resolution to me!

But this is a blog about my submission and therefore, what of my relationship with Sir?  In the past, Sir did give me 2 resolutions which although I wrote them down, I don’t remember where.  Sir will not give me resolutions for 2013 but I know he wants me to learn to identify what I cannot change and accept it and although I fervently wish I could do this, I know part of my personality is to never give up and fight to my last breath for what I want and think is right.  Yes this is a good time to prove my stuff and submit so I will do my best.  Perhaps a Post-it on my forehead might help me:  Sir is in control.  Just as I have learned many things from my dog, I think the quote below sums up my thoughts for the coming year:

A dog’s New Year’s Resolution: I will not chase that stick unless I actually see it leave his hand!

Update (SGBHC #15):  I have accomplished 2 tasks in my garage and hope to do 1 a week until I can fit another car in it.

    If you figure out how to accept the things you can’t change please tell me how. I also struggle with that. Sweet post :)
