A new year, a new beginning − with New Year’s Eve memories barely fresh on anyone’s mind anymore, it’s still nice to reminisce about memorable times from last year. And while maybe not considered “fun” in one sense of the word, this is the time of year when we are still talking about the courage we have mustered up to try and resolve to do something better.,
