Column: 2014: Sorry, but there won’t be any more excuses from me

(Continued)

Reaching for wine — when water is better for me and is probably what I really need!

Excuses — for why I’m not doing things I want to do and know are good for me, like making time for friends, getting a decent night’s sleep and pursuing dreams.

Here’s wishing you and yours a happy, healthy New Year and hoping your resolutions for 2014 will be achieved. (If they aren’t, don’t apologize. Just accept it “is what it is” and move on already!)
