I love that “new year feeling.”  You know what I’m talking about.  It’s the feeling of promises not broken, dreams waiting to be fulfilled and a fresh, clean start.  Collectively we all seem to be tempted by the resolutions and a desire to finally make important changes in our lives. This year I am trying something a little different.  I am not sure where the idea originated but I’ve seen a lot of people choose a word, two words or three words around which they set their intentions for the year.  That is to say, instead of resolving to lose weight perhaps...
