I’ve decided what I’m going to do for my Not New Year Resolution.

give up “perfect starts”

If you have my problem with these, you’ll know exactly what I mean and you need no further explanation.

If you have never experienced the need to start new on Monday; if your notebook has never been thrown out because you started it for one topic then let it linger with just three pages used for years; if you have never decided that one piece of cake has ruined everything so you might as well eat the chips, drink the soda, and forget all about the walk you meant to go on later in exchange for a night in front of the television; then you are amazing, I appreciate you, and I’m not going to explain it.

Wish me luck!
