Illustrations of New Year's Resolutions

"Many people look forward to the New Year for a new start on old habits."  –Anonymous

For more than three decades we have gathered together with good friends on Dec. 31 to ring in the new year. During a portion of those occasions some of the discussion has centred around our New Year's resolutions.   Of late, however,  this topic isn't even mentioned. Perhaps we've concluded there's enough disappointment in the world, we certainly don't need to set our selves up to fail.

But then I wonder. While we may have often fallen back into old habits within days of making our resolutions, we have obviously at some point realized success. We boast a 100% smoke-free room when we gather.  There is talk of going to gyms and of evening walks, of having lost weight, of eating better, of spending more quality time with people we love.

American author and journalist Hal Borland has said: "Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us."  Having gotten a little older and wiser, I no longer see the breaking of a New Year's resolution as a failure, but an acknowledgement that something must change. Seeing that, is perhaps the biggest step towards making it happen.  Maybe not this year, but some day.

So here's a clipart illustration to provide a little inspiration for changing your bad habits:
