The New Year has arrived. The ball has dropped. The year 2010 is here. So now what? What about those New Year's resolutions you made? Were they just empty words or are you ready to follow through on your promises?
At the time we made resolutions, we were filled with holiday cheer, good food and good spirits that often makes everything seem rosier, made us feel like we could do anything. Now that all of the excitement is over and we are all going back to our normal routines, making changes in our lives may be more difficult than we thought.
Don't let the after-holidays blues get you down. There is a lot to look forward to this year like making new memories with family and friends. Be positive. Push yourself to make changes. Set goals and follow through with your plans. You can do it. Just take it one day at a time, one step at a time and you will get there.
