2014I don’t make new year’s resolutions because I am always working toward one goal or another, with varying degrees of success.

So, for me, the new year’s resolution opportunity is no different than any other time of the year.

So, I like to poke fun at resolutions – not to discourage anyone who is feeling particularly resolute – but to have fun and realize that every day is a day to resolve anew, then screw up, then resolve again and keep moving two steps forward, one step back, two steps forward…

Here are 12 funny quotes about new year’s resolutions!
