I read somewhere that 44% of Americans make New Year's resolutions. What I couldn't find was statistics on how many actually work on them. I suspect it's a pretty small number. I am someone who actually likes making resolutions and working on them. I did fairly well last year. I admit that I am better some years than others. For me, resolution are a matter of being more aware.
I think I will keep what I wrote last year out as a reminder since it states so well my ultimate life goals. I also read a great book, The Happiness Project, which influenced me too. I don't think I learned anything new in the book. It did give me food for thought and Gretchen Rubin, the author, writes well. Our lives are just in very different places. She has small children and I do not. I've worked through many of the issues she now deals with. I am so impressed how she has used her project to change people's lives.
