How are those resolutions working out for you?

My history with resolutions I am a devout New Year’s resolution maker. I really am. I’m pretty good at keeping them too. This drives my friends and family crazy.

So, I began thinking about changing careers. After some self-reflection, talking to a counsellor, and observing the teachers at our daughter’s daycare, I…
