If you’re overweight, ugly or an addict, shouldn’t you tackle those problems long before the beginning of a new year?
The calendar may be new but you’re the same person through and through, so what makes you think God is going to be inspired to instill additional willpower in you at the onset of another twelve-month period?
I mean, I’ve always assumed people who are compelled to make resolutions are assuming The Big Guy is going to take a direct hand in their affairs. Otherwise, they’d have to do it themselves and if they didn’t do it before, what would change in the new year?
Personally, I think prayer is great but I don’t expect a deity to endow me with additional abilities beyond what I’ve already in possession of. If the Hook is going to get an upgrade, it’s not going to come from Up High.
To wrap this up – finally – if you’re unhappy with your life… change it!
Don’t wait for Dick Clark or that Seacrest douche to give you a signal, sack up and do it yourself.
And that’s all I have to say about that – for this year, anyway.
