2005: A New Beginning
Cheryl's Weekly Feature


A new year is a fresh start in many ways. During the Christmas season many people look forward to the New Year because it makes us take an inventory of our lives and decide what things we would like to change. New Year’s resolutions are on our minds because we always want to improve our lives.

Many resolutions begin with cleaning up after the holidays. When I began putting away the decorations and finding spots for all the new gifts, I realized we needed more storage containers and shelves.

This need sent my husband to Home Depot, and he returned with plastic storage tubs, shelves, and bathtub sealant, paint and ideas for another home improvement project.

Getting organized can only improve your life! What New Year’s resolutions have you been thinking about?

This published top 10 list includes many of the usual choices:

1) Spend more time with family and friends
2) Improve fitness
3) Lose weight
4) Quit smoking
5) Enjoy life more
6) Quit drinking
7) Get out of debt
8) Learn something new
9) Help others
10) Get organized

Hopefully 2005 will bring you and the world peace, love and happiness. The Pearson Adult Learning Centre hopes to be part of your 2005 as we work towards number eight on the list, learning something new.
