As much as I’m inclined to make resolutions and goals for the new year, I also recognize that the date is an arbitrary one and that it’s important to keep up the momentum of the new year throughout the year, or none of my goals will actually be met. I ran across this quote from Antonio Gramsci today and want to keep it in mind through the year.
I want every morning to be a new year’s for me. Every day I want to reckon with myself, and every day I want to renew myself. No day set aside for rest. I choose my pauses myself, when I feel drunk with the intensity of life and I want to plunge into animality to draw from it new vigor.
