The calendar says it is, but can it really be? Can 2014 be here already? What happened to 2013? For that matter, what happened to this past decade?
I remember quite well when we were so very concerned about the coming of Y2K. Would we make it through without catastrophic consequences? That day seems like only yesterday, yet 14 years have come and gone seemingly in an instant.
With the new year comes the traditional resolutions, those promises we make to ourselves to somehow make things better. What will it be this year? Eating healthy? Getting more rest? Helping those less fortunate? Perhaps making a difference at work?
