Interesting article. I have stopped making new year resolutions for some time now. Instead, I make daily resolutions. Even moment by moment resolutions. We do not need a new year to do things differently. The same way we do not need Valentines Day to feel romantic or Christmas to exchange gifts or feel loved. We need a new will and a desire to value each moment alive with the resolute believe that we are free to change anything we want about ourselves when we want to. It is not a change of year but the resolution to change one's outlook of life that matters.
