It's a New Year!

...And, a new you, right? After all, New Years is a time for resolutions. My definition of a New Year's Resolution is that its just a well intentioned idea that last any where from a week to a month. Do we really need to make resolutions? What's wrong with the way we are? Sure, we could all stand to change every now and then to become a better us. But why make resolutions at the New Year? Do we have to wait a year to try and change ourselves? If we really want to make a change, can't we start changing at any time? I think we all hope that a New Year will bring a little better life than we had in the previous year.

Maybe though, we should look at each day the way we look at a new year. What if we hoped that each day would be better than the last? Better yet, what if we actually tried to make each day better? We can't control everything that happens to us in a day, certainly not in a year. But we can control how we react to what happens to us. And in many instances we can choose and make decisions that will give us a great shot at making a great day. If we tackled each day one at a time and tried to become a better us each day, in 365 days we would've had and made a great year. Just a thought. By an inch its a cinch, by a yard its hard. Right?

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. Christmas brings the hope of a better today, a better tomorrow and a better forever. So having said all of that, Happy New Year! Or, New Day...
