The time of resolution
It may be trite, but it's true: at the start of each New Year, people make resolutions to change the aspects of their lives that dissatisfy them.
Many want to eliminate unhealthy behavior patterns: smoking (see guest column); overeating; lack of exercise; excessive stress.
Others look to the attainment of more concrete goals, such as a new home, increased productivity or a career promotion, economic prosperity, or the achievement of a major project.
And nearly everyone will admit to a yearning, however undefinable, for some kind of change, whether from new experiences, unexpected fortune, personal accomplishment, or community service.
Whatever our readers look for in the New Year, our wish is that they find it, and with it, an expanded awareness of life's potential. May next year see different resolutions!
