Should A Younger Man Date (And Marry) An Older Woman?

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 01/08/15

– I will do ten minutes of contemplative prayer each day. 
– I will work on listening before speaking in conversations with friends and family.

You can also choose a lifestyle area to focus on this year. Take "health," for example. Come up with concrete, measurable things you will do to enhance your health in 2015. Adjust them as you go. Resolutions are there to serve you, not the other way around. Also, don’t make resolutions all about drudgery; make them as enjoyable as you can.

To give yourself the best chance for success, be sure to also do two things: Write things down and tell someone else your plans. This helps with accountability.  

Anytime is a good time to start anew, but January is a natural time in the year to make a fresh start. Here’s to a great 2015!

Sincerely, 
Zoe
