on resolutions

I will kiss my dad on the cheek more, like I did as I entered and exited his hospital room today. I will do this for the next few days and then keep doing it. Hospital beds and IVs and iodine should not be the only things to open up hearts like they do.

I will exercise more and eat better, not just to maintain weight and to tone, but to feel healthier.

I will write more notes and read more diligently. I will keep to deadlines and to tasks and not use the internet as a sorry distraction. I will be a better student. I will pursue better the things that interest me---and sometimes those that don't.

And perhaps, just perhaps, I will stop saying "I will" and will actually, you know, do.

  1. I love your resolutions, the one about your dad is lovely. I really hope he's ok.
    I like what you said about replacing 'will' with 'do', it's something I struggle so much with as well.
