2015 is fast approaching and it’s unbelievable how quickly time flies! It’s that time of year again when everyone is eating large Christmas meals, preparing for their new year’s resolutions to be ‘to lose weight’ or ‘do more exercise’. In addition to those resolutions, it’s important that we also focus on making resolutions to become better people, build better relationships and think about how to help others.
So, in thinking about how to create meaningful resolutions, here are my A-Z resolutions for this year. Maybe you could join me!

G – give to others without expecting anything in return
H – hug people – 7 people a day!
I – impart positive values to others
J – juggle time effectively
