“Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.” —Benjamin Franklin
Today is Recommit to Your New Year’s Resolutions Day. I have to admit, I didn’t make any resolutions this year. There are constantly things I am working on and trying to make a conscious effort to improve. I definitely want to continue to make more things. I got to busy to be creative for a while, and that’s just silly. It’s not something I can do without. So if crocheting long chains of trim or appliquéing a t-shirt is all I can make the time for, I still feel much better than if I don’t pick up the needle and thread.
And then there is the guitar. A constant possible hobby that I never fully develop. (As you can see, my amp is serving as a shelf for sweaters.) So this is the year.
I really like that quote from Ben, especially “be always at war with your vices.” It reminds me that I need to work hard to be the person I want to be. Hopefully, that is inspiring to you as well. Check out here for some more advice and resources for improving yourself with the start of spring.
