New Year, New Approach

New Year's Resolution

It’s that time of year when most people reflect upon the past twelve months and think about the resolutions they want to make for the upcoming year. I don’t know about the rest of you, but for me, it’s usually the same three things:

Eat less. Exercise More. Get Organized.

How long do these new year’s resolutions last? Ummm, until approximately the second week in January. And how do I feel when I break my resolutions?

Awful.

So just this year, I am going to try something new. I am not making any resolutions. Yes, you heard me – not one single resolution. Instead, I am just going to be thankful for what I do have – a loving family, good friends, a successful business and good health.

And so, I’ll close with a bit of humor from an unknown original source – a simple prayer that goes something like this, “Dear God, my prayer for 2013 is a fat bank account and a thin body. Please don’t mix them up like you did last year.” Amen.
