2013 New Year - Antonio Gerenini

This is the time of year when everyone is making resolutions. We feel as though the new year has given us a new lease on life, a blank page on which we can write whatever we'd like. It's a chance to transform yourself and your relationship. I opted to share a photo of my son sporting 2013 glasses because my relationship resolutions are tied up in him. I've decided that I want to be the happiest I can be for my son. If I'm happy, I'll be a better mom and wife. To be happy, I think I must first decide that I want to be happy. Then, I have to make the best of whatever rolls my way. In the coming year, I will be spending more time with my in-laws, trying to find time for my spouse and myself, and navigating parenthood in a way that supports my marriage and family. It won't always be easy. My husband and I will have countless opportunities to work against each other; instead, we must unite and help each other. After all, isn't that what love is all about? How about you? What resolutions are you making?

Happy New Year Francesca. Good luck with your NY resolutions. Making family/relationships a priority is a good choice.

I call mine goals rather than resolutions. I have two of the common variety: lose weight and exercise more. I also want to tame my tendency toward procrastination and to be a better friend. (We just lost a dear friend in November, and I’m reminded how important it is not to put off seeing and talking with our friends.)

Happy New Year and good luck with your resolutions. I didn’t make any new ones. There is my ever-present challenge of avoiding chaos.
