New Year, new you!!
But first, let me ask you…. if you’ve consistently made
New Year’s Resolutions in the past, how successful were you at keeping them?
If you’re like most people, you stay on top of your goals
for the first couple weeks, maybe even the first month, and then regular life
settles back in and you let things slip a little – until they’ve slipped
