It is the New Year and most of us are probably anxious about the resolutions we chose to keep for this year. Gracious Living Guide shares a humorous visual column from the New York Times Magazine of Christop Niemann’s look at the fate of unfulfilled resolutions. Not being able to fulfill one’s resolutions may be frustrating, but it does not hurt to take a gentler and kinder attitude with our failures in keeping our resolutions, after all life is not just a sheet of paper with check boxes and ticks…enjoy the cartoon!
