When the New Year
rolls around, our focus and thoughts turn to resolutions and goals for the
next year. We look at aspects of our life that we can improve or work
on as we go forward. One of the ways we do this is to look back

Do this before you
start your resolutions for this year. Be proud of and acknowledge your
accomplishments. Celebrate yourself before you jump into what you want to do
in the future. Chances are there is a lot to celebrate!
