New year, new slate. Don’t just resolve to be different, better, more; make it happen. Take what you need from the past and leave the rest; for if you’ve really decided to own your resolutions there is no room for the baggage you carry. Life is a never-ending game of strategy; you can choose to hold on to everything and try to add more and hope it all works out or you can dump the unnecessary and move on lighter and ready to make any move you need to. It’s time to take life head-on and say: “Life, game ON.”.
