For the past two years, instead of making a New Year's resolution, I've picked a theme with a corresponding quote.
In 2015, the theme was peace. I felt the quote became something of a mantra and helped to center me. Success!
In 2016, the theme was do, as in the opposite of procrastinate. It was a big one to tackle. Not sure how well I did there, I'd say mixed reviews. However, I give myself credit for trying. Small progress.
In 2017, my theme is health.
