A new year is upon us. 2012. What will we each do to make this year different than the one before it? People make promises like exercising more, eating less, quitting bad habits whatever those may be along with many other aspirations.
I prefer to not to make resolutions at the beginning of a year. I realized a long time ago that these get broken and leave people feeling frustrated and like failures. I prefer to wake up every day, and think about something that I can do better. Maybe it is small, or maybe it is large but it is a constant awareness and improvement that I think leads to more steady and realistic results.
I guess I just don’t think because the clock struck 12 on December 31st, that it is a fresh start. I think every day should be a fresh start and we should always reinvent ourselves and our future. Not just on one day of the year.
