A Patchwork Lifestyle

Making resolutions is a cleansing ritual of self assessment and repentance that demands personal honesty and, ultimately, reinforces humility. Breaking them is part of the cycle.-Eric Zorn

If you fall off and are finding that what you have created as your resolution(s) are difficult to attain do you believe that you need to start over or reevaluate what you have on your list? The quote by Eric Zorn seemed very optimistic, “Making resolutions is a cleansing ritual of self assessment and repentance that demands personal honesty and, ultimately, reinforces humility.” There is much truth within this. However, the last sentence can ultimately encourage someone who is really finding their journey difficult.

Do you believe that, “Breaking them [resolutions] is part of the cycle.”?

When you created your list, did you ever think that this is just a cycle? Something that comes year to year and that there are holes that can’t be fixed or holes that have patches. If it is considered a cycle, what will you do to make this become something positive for your healthy lifestyle?

Assignment: The yearly resolutions are to help you focus on your dreams, goals and aspirations. You are to grow and become a greater person. You are to help others in their walk and help their with their causes as well. However, according to Zorn, that the cycle is to be broken. Do you sincerely believe this quote and how he has looked at resolutions?

  1. Actually yes, I do believe that – I don’t fret about my resolutions but I do make them…

  2. What a terrific quote. New Year’s Resolutions are definitely self-assessments, often about repentance, definitely require honesty and humility (at least with oneself). If, by “Breaking them is part of the cycle,” he means that no one is perfect, then I agree. And, that’s the way I choose to interpret his statement. If you break a resolution, don’t beat yourself up over it; just reassess and start again. I’m a great believer that resolutions are not just for New Year’s.

  3. I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions because I don’t keep them. So for me the quote is accurate. What I did this year was choose a word for the word. My word is joyful, hope your year is joyful, too!

  4. Wow. I’ve never thought about New Year’s Resolutions in that way before. Very interesting!
