Resolution / Revolution

T’is that time of year where we offer up resolutions to the spirit[s] of New Year.  Some we may keep, others we’ll discard and forget . . . until New Year arrives again.

In essence, we rather resolve to revolt—to embrace something we wholeheartedly believe is in our best interest, only to reject it when we grow weary of persistently [trying to] hold onto it.

You know, the definitions of resolution and revolution hold some similarities:

resolution = perseverance  /  purpose  /  resolve /  determination  / tenacity

revolution = transformation  /  alteration  /  reform  /  change  /  conversion

In fact, a revolution can be described as “a sudden or momentous change in a situation”.

But I digress.  <he-he-he>  It seemed fitting, at year’s end, to list resolutions with the [great] hope of sticking to them.  So-o, let’s see if these are doable (they seem simple enough):

♦  lessen depression/stress/resentment (and accept the current situation as it is)    ♦  clasp patience (and hold on tightly)    ♦  write another book (time is not my friend at present, but I’ll extend a hand in greeting)    ♦  get out more—literally    ♦  lose five pounds (guess I’ll have to knock off those gosh-darn-nummy UK snowballs)    ♦  take an on-line course or two (got to / want to keep learning)    ♦  clean clutter (and move out those damnable dust bunnies)    ♦  start my life finally (God/karma/deity willing, of course).

They sound easy-peasy enough.  Let’s check a couple of months from now.  <he-he-he>  As Rey might say, “Never take something too seriously; life’s way too short.”  How true, how true.

Author: tylerus

I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction. So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects). It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
