Resolutions are tough to stick by after the wide-eyed optimism of the New Year wears off and the daily struggle of cleaning, commuting, working, and all that crap gets in the way. But keep them in your mind, be forgiving of yourself, and know that the same bunch of problems and aspirations have beset us humans for time immemorial. You are not alone.  2016 will be sweet - all the best from Paleogreetings!
