It is a trap to dedicate something rashly and only later to consider one’s vows. Proverbs 20:25
I usually make New Year’s resolutions in a rush of excitement and enthusiasm. Because I don’t write them down, by April of most years I have trouble remembering exactly what I resolved in January. Did I intend, I wonder, to lose five pounds this year or to learn Spanish?
In recent years I have pared my pledges down to one per year. I am trying to narrow my focus, to concentrate on one self-improvement project at a time, to be less rash. It is my objective to consider my vows before I make them.
What did you resolve for 2019?
