What is your New Year's Resolution?

The beginning of a New Year always brings reflection on many aspects of our lives. We can't change who we are, but we can change how we choose to live our lives, and what we do will define who we are and who we become. This year, skip the elaborate resolutions to choose something simple and achievable. Resolve to do one good deed a day, even if it's as simple as allowing the person behind you in line to skip ahead, or paying it forward in the drive-thru, or simply holding a door for someone in need. Whatever it is, I wish you all the best for 2013 and am looking forward to another AMAZING year!
