“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language And next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.” – T. S. Eliot.

How good are you at keeping your New Year’s resolutions?
Do you merely posture at your annual celebrations and promise to do better for the new year or do you know that the promises are mere powerful words for change lacking any real substance?
At a recent Christmas party my neighbor and I were discussing our resolutions for 2019. He told me that he was going to “resolve” to not be such a bossy person. He said this was alienating him from his friends and family.
I commended him on his new course of action. However ten minutes later I heard him shouting commands at his spouse to do things in the house during the party. I asked him about his recent pledge to improve and he told me ” Oh, I thought you would have forgotten that promise.”
In this New Year installment Susan and I would like to have your feedback on how well or perhaps not so well you keep your own resolutions. Be as candid as you like and remember that as far as this type of behavior modification is concerned we all slack off from time to time.
Susan and myself wish you the happiest and the safest of New Years. See you back here in 2019.
