To wrap this up, what I’m going to try to do with my resolutions for this year is to look at my own behavior and attitudes to see if there is something I can change to become a better me. One thing that is on my mind is developing, as a habit, “saying what I mean, and doing what I say.”
I don’t feel I am particularly weak in this area, but I know I can become stronger. It’s simply the way I want people to know me, and the way I want to know myself. You see, I’m not just growing old. I’m growing up.
Have a nice holiday!
