New Year's Day
"We will open the book.
Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity
and its first chapter is New Year's Day."
~ Edith Pierce

If you feel inspired to make a new year's resolution, studies suggest that for those who do make them at this time of year, they are more likely to succeed than those individuals who make similar resolutions during other times during the year.
However, statistics show that about 35 percent of us who make New Year's resolutions break them by the end of January. And only 23 percent of people who make a resolution will see it through to completion. Oh well ...
