New Year’s Resolutions for 2013

-- — Making New Year’s Resolutions is easy, but keeping them is not. The best of intentions can easily go awry.

So in keeping with the spirit of the New Year,

following are some resolutions to strive for in 2013.

I resolve to be happy.

I resolve to help others whenever the opportunity arises.

I resolve to say something kind every day to my loved ones.

I resolve to appreciate what I have.

I resolve to be less judgmental.

I resolve to be healthy — in mind, body and spirit.

I resolve to be kind.

I resolve to remember the less fortunate.

I resolve to be a volunteer.

I resolve to be a role model.

I resolve to pay it forward.

I resolve to be thankful.

I resolve to be honest.

I resolve to be the best person I can be.

 Even if everyone is not fully successful at keeping these resolutions, even small successes will make the community a better place in 2013.

Happy New Year!
