New Year Resolutions, Picard style

With the New Year starting, tons of people decided what their resolutions would be for this year. By now, chances are they have already forgotten what these were and have gone back to their bad habits. If not, they might do so in coming weeks. Then again, it’s possible some rare individuals will make lasting changes in their life this year. I suppose we should strive to be these individuals.

Then again, life changing resolutions are so much work to keep up with. Isn’t it possible that people see to big and sabotage their own chances of success by choosing objectives to far out of reach? Or it might simply be that despite their best intentions, they never put in the real amount of effort needed to succeed. We all wish for the best, but what we really need to do it make it so.

Celebrate celebration!

Celebrate celebration!

Chances are, according to where you are in the world or what you faith is, you don’t celebrate Christmas. Another holiday might take its place for you. Or, you might celebrate it differently: in Japan, it is celebrated as a couple’s holiday, much as Saint-Valentine’s day.  You could also celebrate it, but without paying any attention to  its religious origins.
