New Year, New Me

“Sometimes you just have to take chances,” a dear friend just wrote on my Facebook wall. She’s right. And this from a phenomenal human being in her own right, with far more talent than I could ever aspire to. It’s an easy thing to compile a list of would-be New Year’s resolutions. After all, it’s the one time of the year where self-renewal seems self-evident, when “newness” can happen just by virtue of the changing of the year.

To make it work, however, is another story. The words are spoken or written easily and just as easily dismissed. 2012 was not a good year for me, in this my 27th year of life. 2013 will be better. I have every intention of blooming with fury, and bloom I will. Dear friends, I will become the Ben you’ve all expected me to be, and no longer the Ben who’s let you down so often. This I promise. I owe this to you firstly and also to me. Bloom and bloom with fury — that’s my 2013 mantra, and it will happen.
