‘‘New Year, new me.’’

It’s that time of year again where peo­ple seek to be a bet­ter ver­sion of them­selves with New Year res­o­lu­tions - but how long will they last? If you are ask­ing me, the an­swer is not long.

Peo­ple vow to drop the ex­tra weight put on dur­ing Christ­mas, put down the cig­a­rettes, drink less or stop nail bit­ing.

For me, I have told my­self I need to eat bet­ter for the past year now. How­ever, my last few meals have been McDon­alds for din­ner, no break­fast fol­lowed by a nicely cheesed pasta dish.

You could say it’s not re­ally go­ing that well for me so far.

But I think we should all bet­ter our­selves all the time, not just one time of the year. (Yes, that line is cheesier than my pasta).

While I do see that set­ting a cer­tain date for a goal and hav­ing a point to mea­sure from may be use­ful, I think all year round we should make an ef­fort.

I hope ev­ery one had a fan­tas­tic break and I look for­ward to get­ting back into the com­mu­nity and hear­ing your sto­ries this year.
