New Year's Non-Resolutions

Year after year, the 31st of December rolls in and I don't make any New Year resolutions. I'm happy with that. I know that it's not going to happen anyway. I won't get more sleep, no matter how much I want to. I won't work less or go to gym more. I will yell at the kids when I'm grumpy and I won't spend less time writing. This is who I am and I'm comfortable with that.

Happy 2014! May you all find contentment with who you are.
