Will be about the things I
Start as much as stop

Notes to this poem…
Happy New Year! This time of year is about resolutions for a lot of people. Most of those resolutions are things they’ll start or do, rather than things they’ll stop or not do. That’s generally the case with me as well, though my resolutions tend to be more purpose guided than action. The action is just what needs to happen, in a lot of cases, for the purpose to get fulfilled, and can easily change during the year. My resolutions also tend to be things in life that will take more years to either complete, or are life changes that should be permanent so long as they apply.
This year, though, my resolutions will be just as much about the things I start as things I stop. What those will be are a bit long and complicated to explain it all, but it’ll be pretty balanced on both sides this year unlike other years for me.
