Every year I contemplate the new year and resolutions. Honestly though, I don't usually make them at the beginning of the year; I make them all year long. I do like thinking about the new year as a clean slate though. It's a chance to do things better and to learn from my mistakes. My mom gave me this quote today that explains how I feel.
"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day."
----Edith Lovejoy Pierce
May each of us open our books this year and fill our pages with experiences which make us better, happier people.
