I don't make New Year's resolutions.
To me, such decisions and goals should be ongoing. The fact that they are left to one time of the year suggest procrastination and lack of determination in the first place.
That said, the idea of a clean slate I can understand, as well as re-focusing after a few weeks of irregular routine and in my case, extra hours of work. Our lives do seem to follow patterns and as the sun begins its ascent in the sky once again, a new optimism arises within us.
Myself, I am happy to let things settle down and get back to fulfilling the resolutions I make each and every day.
