Resolution (noun): a decision or determination; a resolve; a promise to do something.
Resolve (verb): to make a definite decision to do something
I don't make resolutions most years, but I have one this year: to face the world one day at a time.
This year I will focus on becoming healthy. I've spent the last year living in a dark place where "hope" is just the part of the word that comes before "-less". By the end of the year, writing this blog required more energy than I had; most things required more energy than I had.
I've got a new doctor and a new therapist and some new medication. I'm starting to see sunshine again, and I'm ready to take on the world.
Knowing me, I'll take on the world to the point of overwhelming myself and shutting down again when I can't handle everything. Thus my resolution. One thing at a time, one day at a time.

And Happy New Year to all of us!
