I stand here in 2017 better than I started in 2016. For that I am thankful. But what is it about a new year that compels us to want to be better? For some this betterment lasts a mere two weeks and others a mere 2 minutes, and still some make it the entire 365 and come out unscathed by failed resolutions.

What compels me in 2017? Well, a lot of things really. I want to be a better writer. I want to be a better friend and aunt and family person. I want to love people in general more. I want to read more. I want to travel more. I want to understand more. I want to be more. I want to pursue more. In short…I want more. Not more stuff but more experiences. It is my new life’s mantra – Experiences NOT Things.

So in the end, I believe our resolutions to be wants we turn into realities if we stay the course and are resolute to do so.

What are your resolutions?
