Meaningful resolutions

For the first time this Christmas I played hostess … at the first house I can proudly call my own. I have a lot of reasons to be grateful.

Christmas Eve present opening created the usual amount of paper-strewn chaos in the living room but in the joy, I paused to think about some presents that will never be opened. 2012 brought heartache to many families. The day the tragedy in Connecticut occurred I talked with a coworker and he said he just wanted to go get his kids and hug them.

Hug your kids more: That’s a meaningful resolution.

I hope we all create meaningful resolutions this year — tell your family and friends how much they mean to you, go out of your way to make someone’s life better, hug the ones you love every day, be honest.

They’re a bit heavier than the usual resolutions of losing 5 pounds or waking up early to watch the sun rise but these resolutions could lead to more joy than fitting into skinny jeans. These resolutions could make 2013 the best year yet and that’s what I wish for everyone.
