New Year’s resolutions, they say, are destined to be broken.
But here’s one we hope will stick: Let 2017 be the year of the family.
Your family. Our families.
That means putting down the cell phone to listen to your children, spouse, or anyone else who especially matters in your life.
Take time to breathe, enjoy the small things, relish human relationships and work to live more so than live to work.
Life is fragile, and short. Don’t forget to live yours in the time you’ve been given.
If you haven’t made a resolution, here’s a list you might consider as we prepare to launch into 2017:
Resolve to be a good listener.
Resolve to exercise more, and laugh more.
Resolve to have at least one good idea each day.
Resolve to learn more about everything.
Resolve to be better, in all ways.
Resolve to not break any of the above.
There. That should keep you busy in 2017.
