For all the flack that resolutions get every year, I for one am a fan. I relish the opportunity to restart every year, for a moment to feel hopeful about myself, as if I too can accomplish great things. I think we should focus less on how often we break our resolutions, and more on just how optimistic a people we can be. Let's embrace the hope that we have in ourselves, and commit to dusting ourselves off every New Years and trying to be better. Even if it lasts a day.
