The Daily Resolution: 2011

Today is no longer the worst day of my life but the best, Lumbergh.

It’s 2011, and the cliche uttered the most, or at least what I always hear as the clock ticks to 12:00, “We made it! High five, bro!” I oblige and engage in a few fist pumps as well, but when you think about it, you should be saying, “We made it,” every morning. Every single day is a gift. Every single day is a way to make your life and the lives of those around you better. Every day is an opportunity.

Comment below with how you will make today all you can make it. From something as easy as calling a friend to say hi or curing cancer… A resolution doesn’t have to be some big thing. Keep it simple… Or, aim high.
