More often than not, New Year's resolutions are about trying to change. 

We age. We lose hair. We gain weight. Things go wrong. In response, we resolve to somehow look and act like our younger selves. 

Well life is short; shorter than I ever thought.  So how about a New Year's resolution to accept change as a fact of life? For example, I am getting older, but because I am still alive, I get to enjoy my children as adults and share in their life experiences.  Sure, things have gone wrong, but on balance, more things have gone right and I have been pretty fortunate.  You get the idea. 

So I think, for a change, I will try to smile more this year. Happy New Year.
