Be it resolved for the New Year to worry less about arbitrary standards of time, and space, and propriety, to seek authenticity over acceptance or approval;
to value sincerity over snark, but to give snark its due for bringing the self-aggrandizing down a notch or two;
to enjoy my vices enough to justify having them,
and to question whether pleasureless virtues are worth having at all;
to break mostly only that in need of demolition,
to build what needs creation even when I don't quite know how
(and even if the work is shoddy);
to seek out failure of the best kind
and to not shy away too much from failure of the bad kind,
to reserve my hesitation for failure of the worst kind;
and certainly not to fear failing to keep resolutions of the kind posted on a blog,
but to still give it a decent try at the very least.
Happy New Year, everyone!
