New Year's Day, Resolutions, and Let's Try Again!

(Or, I Can't Believe It's Another Year Since I Haven't Become A Better Person!)

New Year's Day - the day for thinking anything is possible. How wonderful is that? No matter that we didn't quite meet up to last NYD's expectations; we have another chance.

I think this page made for the family and friends calendar is my resolution. It covers all the bases quite nicely - just be a better you, whatever that means - kinder, more patient, more giving, less critical , a more creative artist - oh, and (of course) thinner, and while we're at it, develop killer arms like Michelle Obama!

Here's a more lofty take on this idea from Martin Luther King:

" If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep the streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause and say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well".

Here's to a Happy New Year. May it bring out the best version of us all.
