you say you want a resolution

Every single one of us can be a better person and when one year rolls to an end and a new year begins, it is very common for folks to make resolutions.  There was a time when it seemed like EVERYONE resolved to do something and then by the third or fourth of January, the resolutions had already fallen by the wayside.

It may surprise you to know that, according to data just released by the University of Scranton. Journal of Clinical Psychology, 45% of  Americans usually make New Year’s Resolutions and only 8% are successful in achieving their resolution.  Not very encouraging, huh?

So what were the most popular resolutions? Well according to that seem Journal data, the tope ten for this year were to Lose Weight, Get Organized, Spend Less, Save More, Enjoy Life to the Fullest, Stay Fit and Healthy, Learn Something Exciting, Quit Smoking, Help Others in Their Dreams, Fall in Love, and to Spend More Time with Family.
 
So even though 2014 has already begun, maybe we can still make a resolution and just maybe we can succeed because we know how hard it is and so we can try even harder!  It's never too late to resolve to do good.

I've decided to only write on weekdays, so this being a Friday, I have a couple of days off.  See you Monday!
