I teach an English class at night. For our first class of 2012, I had the students write out their resolutions or goals for the year and address an envelope to themselves.
I told them that in a month I’d mail them their envelopes with their resolutions. Now that it’s officially February, I’m putting the letters in the mail today.
I figure it would be a good time to see how the resolutions are going after a month. And it’s probably a good time for all of us to dust off those month-old resolutions, or congratulate ourselves on a job well done.
