HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Where do "Resolutions" come from?

Why do we make "resolutions" and where do they come from? Ancient wisdom suggests the obvious that each year gives us an opportunity for renewal or self actualization. I agree the new year gives us the opportunity to do something new, create something new and look forward to something new.

Perhaps, we could move beyond the "usual" resolutions that include improving our physical appearance in some way. I do think living a healthy life is important but let's look beyond that one for a moment.

What about the "daydreams" that float along with us every day that we often push aside for another time? Perhaps, this new year we could make a few resolutions together? 

In the year 2012, we could spend more time with loved ones and make many new friends.ducks
