I don't really have a resolution as I think they are kind of a waste of time. I don't like writing lists of things to follow. I don't like lists and agendas. I don't understand how people can operate with lists and objectives on a consistent basis and be happy. I guess it's all about being trained. Having said I do have some things I'd like to keep in mind in this upcoming year. I won't hold myself to these strictly. I won't lose sleep over them. But adhering to these concepts would probably lead to a happier and more productive 2012.
The first thing to do is to make sure that I surround myself around positive people. I've been blessed by accident I think, to already be doing so in this town I live in, and outside of town. I guess it'd be more accurate to say avoid dark people who drain energy. In the past I've been drawn to the negative as it appears more interesting than the good. It's always a no-win situation though. You always leave worse than you began. Positive people, like the people in the band, and around town, always build you up make you stronger. This is all common sense, but sometimes it needs to be reiterated.
Secondly, I need to recommit to a healthful lifestyle, without compromising my need for a good times and individual liberty. I'm getting older. I bought vitamins (SAM-E, D (5000 IU's), and IRON) today. I need to get back to the Cod Liver (Carlson's) routine, as well as juicing. I've noticed mood changes before when I did that stuff not to mention my "performances" were longer (fyi). Taking up swimming would be great too. I'm not fit to do much physically right now. It's really quite sad.
Another thing I should do is get a somewhat steady side-job. Another source of income. Money is a good thing and I really need more of it if I'm to eventually build a cargo container home somewhere. I waste a lot of hours in the day. This needs to stop.
Finally, I must remain self-interested. With an understanding that I'm the only one that can provide true happiness and fulfillment for myself. I need to quiet any harmful desire of companionship and family. Physical exchanges need to remain unattached and cold. Vulnerability leads to weakness. Weakness will drain energy. Keep it light. Try different things. Playing music, writing songs, drawing, following politics, learning about Austrian Economics (for now) keep me content.
I can't believe I just made a list. It must be the 10,000 IU's of Vitamin D I took and the Iron...someone hold me accountable to this shit...and don't mock me if you see me in an alley, off the wagon, violating everyone of these approaches. I fail a lot.
