when resolutions feel unneccesary

Tomorrow will be New Years Eve. I was going to write something that speculated on the year that was, and what I hoped the new year would bring [peace, love, + other cliches], but in light of... some things... it didn't seem neccessary. Resolutions seem fruitless when every day is hoping for a change, and making promises to oneself.

I used to wonder whether I'd changed at all in this last year. Now it just doesn't seem important. I am who I am, and whether it's the same person I was 8 months, 5 weeks, or 3 days ago even, doesn't make a difference. Tomorrow night will be fun, and I'm looking forward to it, but for once, I'm not expecting any great changes to come with the new year. Because I have to make the changes myself; time itself will not create a new life.
