2014 New Year’s Resolutions

A new year, a new list of resolutions and time to reflect on 2013.  I use to dislike resolutions because I would create vague big picture resolutions that were hard to attain.  Last year I tried out a longer list of detailed  goals and I really enjoyed the entire process, reminders, and reflections in 2013.  So again i have created a list, for 2014.  These resolutions help me to step back and stay on track to be the person I strive to be.
