Here's wishing all of you have a safe, healthy and prosperous New Year. Make resolutions you can keep. And not the same old one you make every year, that eventually goes by the way side. I'm guilty of that. I can recall the only New Year's resolution I've managed to reach. Back when I was fifty, I decided I needed to slow down. Stop and smell the roses so to speak. And I haven't looked back. Have I had relapses? A few here and there. But then my inner voice reminds me to slow down.

For those of us who need to lose weight, try something different. Don't say, this year I want to lose weight. Say instead, I'm going to eat healthier this year. This New Year I've decided to set goals for myself. Take baby steps so my body doesn't go into shock. I'm going to do my best to give up a few things that aren't good for me. No, I don't have any bad habits like doing drugs and drinking. I'm talking about certain foods, and life choices. Find less stress in my life. I'm always telling my staff, don't fret over things outside your circle of influence. If you can change it, do, if you can't, let it go and move on.

I think I'll take a page out of my own book.

So...what are some of your New Year's Resolutions?

Happy New Year.
I haven't gotten into setting resolutions for the new year, but wish everyone well on what they decide to do.

Hi Tori,
I hope you and your family had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year's Eve.
this year i am going to quit smoking. i have already gone from 1 1/2 packs a day to under 1/2 pack a day. this last year my mom got really sick and the Dr. said she needed to quit as she had lung problems. we made a deal to do it together. it has been slow but we are getting there, now we are working on getting rid of the last of them and hope by our birthdays(2/22-her & 3/12-me) we will be smoke free. :)
i have been smoking for 30+ years and it has been hard to try quitting but i already feel better than i did and i hope to feel a lot better when i have quit for good.

i hope that all of your dreams and wishes come true in the new year.

Thanks Leni!

I wish you and your mom all the best Tammy. That's one habit I've never had but I have friends and family members who smoke and have tried to quit. Sounds like you and your mom are well on your way to succeeding!
