I'm not real big on making New Year's resolutions but the promise of a new year and new possibilities remind me of this quote:
"This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to do as you will. You can waste it or you can use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it and when tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever. In its place will be something you left behind. Let it be something good."
Maybe we should make everyday New Years Day.
