This year, I'm keeping my New Year's resolutions simple. The ever popular "weight loss" resolution is not on my list. This year I want to actually be able to attain some of my goals. So, here it goes. I will drink more water every day. I will exercise more. I will spend more time in faith . Notice, I didn't include any deadlines or specific numbers. Yes, 8 glasses of water per day & 30 minutes of exercise 3 times a week are recommended. And every religion has a set of rules and/or commandments. However, I have tried to follow recommendations & rules in the past. When I have failed, I've felt disheartened and very much a failure.
