Looking Forward

This is the time of year to both look back to see what's been accomplished in the current year and to look forward to the coming year with new goals.

I have come to dislike the word "resolutions" mainly because very few can be resolute enough to keep them. Goals, on the other hand, are something you strive toward - sometimes they're attainable and sometimes they aren't. However, not achieving your goals doesn't seem to make you feel as bad as breaking a resolution. Is that just semantics? Is it just an excuse to not make resolutions? I don't know & it really doesn't matter in the end. It just seems that if you set a goal and don't accomplish it, you can analyse the reason and adjust your path for another try. If you make a resolution and don't accomplish it, it just feels like a failure!

May all of you have a bright and happy 2008. May you forget making resolutions and charge full-steam ahead toward your goals!
