A new year is a chance to start over.
We can start that diet again, begin watching our checkbooks a bit more closely, spend more time with family and friends and set ourselves on what we believe is our right path.
The first day of the year marks a moment where we can become the people we think we want to be.
I'm not really one to make resolutions as Jan. 1 rolls around. But this year, I'll make some personal ones and some for our community. And I'll also tell you what I hope happens this year.
I hope that all Campbellsville and Taylor County residents are prosperous this year, whether it’s in happiness, wealth or health - or all three. And to do that, we need to resolve to take care of each other in addition to ourselves.
I hope this year brings new industry, restaurants and shopping to Campbellsville. And I hope many new jobs come along, too.
I hope those who suffered damage during a recent tornado get on their feet again very soon. We as a community should resolve to always help those in need. I know, we already do a great job of this, but it never hurts to refocus our efforts.
I resolve to clean my house more often, read more books and devote more effort to the relationships in my life.
I also resolve to take better care of myself physically and emotionally. This past year has been hard, for many reasons. Here's hoping to a better 2014.
I resolve to give more to charity, in money and time. Though it's easy to complain about the problems in your life, there's likely always someone, somewhere, who has more. I resolve to not forget that this year.
And lastly, I resolve to - and I know this sounds cliché - no longer sweat the small stuff. I've been doing a lot of that lately and it's a habit I think we should all drop.
If you made some resolutions this year, I hope both you and I are still working on them as of Feb. 1.
I recently watched an episode of "The Middle," where the family made resolutions for each other. It's an interesting concept.
Am I brave enough to ask someone else to make a new year's resolution for me? Give me 2014 to think on it.
To you, I wish a happy new year. May life treat you well.
