The Best Laid Plans: Resolutions Abound
A key element to a New Year’s Resolution that sets it apart from other resolutions is that it is made in anticipation of the New Year and the hope for new beginnings and a fresh start. For most people resolutions come and go but for others it is about setting personal goals for the immediate future.
What is your New Year’s Resolution this year? For some it will be to lose weight, for others it will be to put some life issues into perspective.
With that in mind, we polled our staff and other notable Philipstown residents on what New Year Resolutions they will make for the year 2013.
Betty Budney: “To have peace, happiness and good health.”
Former Legislator Vinny Tamagna: “To be kinder and gentler and to connect to people more, not to take life so seriously.”
Cold Spring Mayor Seth Gallagher: “To appreciate more of the present moment and to remember how lucky I am.”
Former Trustee Airinhos Serradas: “To learn another language, I have long wanted to expand my language skills. I have decided to learn sign language.”
Village of Cold Spring Clerk, Mary Saari: “Focus on the important things.”
At the PCN&R, Editor Doug Cunningham: “Be organized. Be thoughtful but quick. And get in better shape.”
Graphics Assistant Chris Layton: “Stop drinking soda.”
Ad Manager Lynn Duffy: “Make myself a priority and not sweating the small stuff.”
Reporter Catherine Garnsey: “To love more, laugh more and pray more...”
Sportswriter Stephen Schweikhart: “To get out from behind the computer a bit more and get back to being more active.”
The staff at the PCN&R wishes all of our readers a Happy and Healthy New Year.
