No, not "Just Like" but there are similarities.
Only this time it is three years of sobriety!
My intentions from last year:
For this revolution around the sun I intend to be credit debt free.
Failed! I was credit debit free for a couple of months, but I have taken on a new car payment. I am still able to pay off the cards month to month, so that is doing better, but it is tenuous at best.
This year? It is not realistic to think I will pay off the minivan this year, or for the next few years, but I intend to not to let the cards gain interest.
I've also begun an additional rainy day account for retirement with the intention of having funds set aside enough to cover two mortgage payments after retirement, not enough to survive off of right now, but I am diverting the balance of the annual Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) cost of living adjustment(about 3% of the BAH) to go to this account, and intend to do that for the rest of this career. It still wont be "Enough", but is it ever?
Return to regular shakuhachi practice.
Fail! I did well for a while then dropped off in the fall about the same time as last year.
This year? I will make this resolution again.
Get in a few more Shakuhachi lessons.
This did not happen.
This year? It is a luxury that is out of reach right now.
Cling less and let go more.
I am clinging less to clinging less and have let go of letting go more.
For this year I will seek to inhibit the negative chatter that can foul my brain housing unit from time to time by way of analysis and contemplation.
May this next revolution find you all well and happy
