Traditionally, the new year is a time when many people resolve to make changes in their life. Making New Year’s resolutions, however, is a practice that I tend to avoid. It seems arbitrary and contrived to target January first.
After all, if a change is warranted or desired, why wait? Set about it immediately, be it January first, May tenth, or October seventeenth. Any day is a great day to commence making life changes.
Therefore, if you made a new year’s resolution, I wish you much perseverance and great success.
And if you forgot to make a resolution, don’t wait until next year rolls around, begin right away, just as soon as you realize that an adjustment is needed in your life or circumstances.
Regardless of how your year is starting off and the plans you have made, I hope that you will make it a great one!
