Even though it’s almost February, 2017, I’m still struggling to polish off my New Year’s resolutions for last year. I only had three: attention to health, organization and comfort. I did manage to hit the gym more often than not, and I bought a bunch of new shoes that make my feet deliriously happy. So, two out of three ain’t bad. But organization … well, I’m still working on that one. I successfully cleaned out my closets and reorganized my kitchen cabinets and pantry early in the year, but my home office is still not the tidy, efficient workspace I know it can be. And every weekend, it seems, something more fun exciting urgent keeps popping up instead.
New Year’s resolutions are fun to make if only for the illusion they give of trying to better ourselves and our lives. Usually our good intentions are history before Valentine’s Day, but we do try. And that’s got to count for something, right?
