Do you resolve? I am hit and miss. Mostly I like to avoid creating goals to break and then cudgel myself with. But I do find the new year a good time to reflect and this year I’m giving a shot at two things:

First, no soda in 2023. This is going to be tough for me. And I’m an abstainer not a moderator so I have to go all or nothing. Maybe I’ll give myself free day Saturdays but have to go pretty extreme to make it work.

Second, I want to do better at really seeing and appreciating people. I lost a cousin recently and, while reflecting on my own experiences with them and reading other people’s tributes, I realized that there was a lot more to this person than I ever recognized and I deeply regret that I didn’t see it sooner. I need to do better.

So, how about you? Any resolutions?
