What’s a resolution? : a firm decision to do or not to do something, the action of solving a problem. Every new year most people contemplate or actually make a resolution to do something different in their lives for the new year. An egocentric resolution can have a positive personal effect on our own life, but what if we focused on sociocentric resolutions! Resolutions that impact our community. Maybe we could bring about change in our own community and country. Below are some resolutions we might consider…
1. Resolve to get involved with a charity on a monthly basis. I bet we would see dramatic changes in our communities.
2. Resolve to help others… Can you regularly give to your place of worship for the care of those less fortunate? (we might put a dent in the homeless problem.)
3. Resolve to be civil and courteous to those around you…we don’t have to be first all the time….consider those around you! Wait…practice being patient…relax! This means no road rage.
4. Resolve to bring about change…Wouldn’t it be great to see congress resolve to work with one another in a bipartisan fashion? If this change isn’t seen on both sides of the
aisle, we could resolve to elect those who will work together for our country’s best interest.
What will you resolve to do that will impact those around you?
