I am a fan of resolutions. I make them every year. I don't always keep them for long, but every year I make time to think about the ways in which my behavior could be a little bit better. I don't think that can ever be a bad thing.
Before I can go forward with this blog post, I have to make a couple of confessions and apologies. I have been known to make fun of vegetarians in my life. I’m sorry.
