What is your New Year’s resolution this year, if you are making one?
I looked up RESOLUTION in my dictionary, and the definition that we associate with this time of year is “firm determination” or “a resolving to do something” . There are 4 other definitions included for this word that I found interesting:
3. A formal statement of a decision, or an expression of opinion adopted by an assembly, legislature, or other organization.
4. A solution or explanation; an answer
5. The musical progression of a dissonant tone or chord to consonant tone or chored, or the tone or chord at which such a progression ends
6. The act or process of separating or reducing something into its smaller parts
RESOLUTION is a packed word! When you think of it all together, you would get a definition that is something like this: Declaration that is firmly determined to answer a problem or tension, even in its smaller parts.
So from me to you, I hope your life in the New Year will be one that is of beautiful music- with determined decision to progress and grow and to find the answers to the tensions of your life, and that you will have peace in the smallest parts.
Happy New Year!
