What are resolutions? Are they promises to ourselves for changes in our life which we believe make us better people or just different people? Why are we caught up in the Annual tradition instead of making such changes throughout the year, not on New Years Eve? This suggests that a new year deserves a new beginning. It may suggest that there are things we do not like about ourselves.
I say over and over again~~each day we wake up in the morning we can experience a new beginning. We can do daily affirmations geared to be a better person.

There is an old tradition of writing your "goals" or wishes,~~ if you will, on a piece of paper. Each wish on a separate piece of paper.
