Resolution for Revolution of the Soul

I'll be making my normal resolutions this year, the same ones I make every year. Some will remain upheld throughout the year, and others will eventually be shelved.
I will grow closer to the Lord, and strive to live closer to His word. I will follow Hitonoko's (Christ's) teachings wherever they will lead. If I sin, I will ask forgiveness, and not repeat my errors again. I will hold myself up to the standards in the Bible, and not hold the Bible up to my standards.
I will hold my tongue because anger accomplishes nothing. And if I do lose my temper, I will apologize.
My happiness will remain my own this year. I will rely on nothing and no one else on earth to hand it to me.
I will try to be healthier and eat three meals a day, none of which whill consist of pure sugar.
I will not blame my personal problems on my parents or my enviroment. I can blame my psychology on no one but myself.
I won't let magazines or the media tell me what is good and what I should be.
I will keep my love for someone who deserves it.
Since I believe in Karma I will only give what I want to be returned.
The grass is the same on both sides, so I will not wish for what I can not have.
I will appreciate what I have since I don't know when it will be gone.
I will not do stupid things to satisfy earthly desires.
I will learn to trust.
I will look past the outer surface to the inner heart and soul.
I will spend more time with my family. I will appreciate the family I do not like, or that I think is useless.
Money is not a permanant thing, and I will not worry about what I don't have. I have what I need, and that is enough.
I will forgive in my heart, not just in my mind.
I will not forsake Hitonoko for anything.
My love will conquer my hate, as my strength of will will conquer my fears.
I will be strong. I will be true to myself. I will strive to seek my inner self.
My mind will be unleashed to its full potential.
The voices in my head will be silent from midnight until noon.
I will learn to play the guitar and/or the piano.
I will learn to speak Japanese, and I will pick up enough Tagalog and Vietnamese to hold conversations with my friends' parents.
I will get my license.
I will be understanding.
I will not insult the less fortunate, or stomp further upon the downtrodden.
I will be humble.
I will finish my projects.
I will be me. And that will be enough.
So that was mostly a repost of resolutions last year. Notice how much prettier my writing used to be? What happened? I think the loss of the privacy of my diary led me to pander to the sad.
