Four days past the new year, many people probably have a string of new year's resolutions that they have made.
Hopefully, they haven't started breaking any of their resolutions yet.
Breaking new year's resolutions may seem like a small thing, but there is always room for improvement for everyone. Everyone should make resolutions, and do their best to keep them. It may be something about you that irritates yourself; something that you know irritates others; or just something that you would like to be better about.
Everyone should make the resolutions and everyone should keep them. Outside of the idea of becoming a better person, it is also a matter of keeping your promises. Even if they are promises to yourself; you should always keep your word, hold to your promises.
And it's not just individual people that should try to improve and try to keep their promises. Businesses and organizations always have room for improvement as well. Perhaps they shouldn't make new year's resolutions, but they should always try to improve and always keep their promises to improve.
This new year comes at the end of a tumultuous election year. A lot of promises have been made during the campaign, and some of those promises seem to be vanishing into the smoke of a legislative session, diminishing in importance the farther election day goes into the past.
Perhaps the newly elected politicians should make their own new year's resolutions this year. They should promise, and hold to their word, that they will do the things they promised the voters that elected them.
