It seems to me that looking back on the year past and taking stock of the good things that came our way, appreciating the little things, is a better way of improving one's outlook on life. In a wonderful book called Time Stops for No Mouse by Michael Hoeye, Hermux, the main mouse, took time every night to keep a little journal (it would be little wouldn't it? He's a mouse.) In his journal he wrote a note of thanks for the things that happened during that day. Some were very small, inconsequential things. But the point is, Hermux noticed them and remembered them and was grateful. I think it made Hermux a better mouse.
So, not to belittle anyone who thinks that with a New Year's resolution they can become a better person and strives for it and works on it, I say God love ya. Keep me in your prayers! But I think you're ok just the way you are.
