Well, it’s that time again – time to raise a glass and welcome a brand new year or maybe kiss goodbye to one that wasn't particularly good to you. Time to make some new resolutions. Or just recycle the old ones that you never kept or never got around to. Get more exercise, call friends more often, clean out that spare room – okay, well, maybe more there’s more than one room. Maybe there’s the garage and the basement too.
Basically, resolutions are just things we want to do.  Travel more, yep. Eat more without gaining weight. For sure. Become wealthy enough to never have to worry about how to pay another bill.  Oh yeah!
New Year's Day is kind of like having a lottery ticket right before the drawing. There are soooo many possibilities!  New Year's Eve on the other hand can be kind of like April Fool's Day. Mother Nature, Father Time and the demongods are all texting each other with the best of their spoiled plans.
‘Instead of losing those 50 lbs he gained them!’
‘The boat sank before it even left the dock!’
‘Retired and going round the world? Not! All 5 kids moved back in!’
Mere mortals that we are, we just make more resolutions. So go hurdle those barriers, thwart those demons, and sell all that junk at a garage sale.

Raise that glass and let’s have a toast to 2014! A toast to possibilities!
May the New Year be good to you, healthy and prosperous.
