With a new year comes many of the
same resolutions: lose weight, save
money or try to be an overall better human
being. Many of these resolutions
happen to be some of the hardest things
to commit to. By February, resolutions

Maybe we're aiming too high? Regardless,
the desire is still there to make
2016 better than 2015, right?
