Why No Arbor Day Resolutions?

I’ve never been into making New Year’s resolutions.  I guess I’ve never seen the point.  I’ve always thought that if I’ve wanted to make a change in my life, why wait until January?  I get the whole “new year-new start” thing, but I know people who will defer a “life changing” resolution until the new year…even if it’s July.

Resolutions made in June or October aren’t any weaker than those made in January, and they may actually be better, because it seems like many New Year’s resolutions are made out of tradition, rather than honest conviction—if you’re willing to wait until the New Year’s, then you’re probably not ready to make a change.  So go ahead and make your New Year’s resolution if you’re truly ready, but don’t be afraid to make Arbor Day resolutions, Summer Solstice resolutions, or Halloween resolutions.  Change is something that shouldn’t be done only once a year; it should be done as needed.

  1. I agree with you about resolutions. Making positive change should not have to wait only for New Years. If the person is ready any day of the year is a good day.
