I’ve been in Syracuse this past week with no particular urgency to head back to Brooklyn. Syracuse (downtown) reminds me of downtown Milwaukee as far as architecture and layout goes. Lots of interesting stuff is happening with local food and entrepreneurship making it feel like a good place for anyone who wants to make a name for themselves.
Housing stock is crazy affordable, but I haven’t really looked at where the jobs are and whether or not you could actually live comfortably out here. Nothing compares to Brooklyn and its scene(s) though. But, I’m not there and oh well.
For those of you who actually read this blog, you’ll notice that I haven’t really posted about New Year’s and Resolutions and whatnot, save for this snark.
Everywhere else though, it’s Happy New Year this and What are Your Resolutions? that and to all that I say, fuck outta here with that peer pressure to shame me into thinking I’m too fat, too poor, too boring, and otherwise not amazing enough to be myself just as I am.
How about: January may not be the best time of year for me to make significant changes? How about: I just might not be feeling resolute right now and quit asking me if I’ve resolved to be anything other than myself this year as though that is just the worst thing in the world for me to be.
I always have something I want to be doing and I’m always becoming something. More me, actually. So I don’t need no stinkin’ Jan 1st and this mad dash to get it right this time.
Cuz ain’t nothing wrong with me.
And nothing’s wrong with you, either.
So here’s an idea:
Resolve to just be still and let your higher self speak to what you need and where you want to be this year.
And that’s ten times better than that resolution you made that won’t be worth shit come Valentine’s Day.
And when you feel like getting down to business, you can learn a better way to set goals that are specific to who you are and how you work by creating a personal calendar or meditation or scheduling a breakthrough session with me.
I’ll be here.
