January of the New Year is nearly history.  For many of us, making and keeping a New Year’s resolution can be one of the hardest things to do. Most people resolve to lose weight, eat more healthy foods, work harder or spend more time with family and friends. Others vow to be more charitable while some resolve to live life to the fullest. While these resolutions are well-meaning as we remind ourselves each day of our plans, by the time February comes along, most of our resolutions are all but forgotten. There are those exceptional few who have the necessary will power to stick with their resolutions for the duration. While it may be hard for the rest of us, sometimes all we need is a little inspiration to keep us motivated. Here are some inspirational quotes to help you with your New Year’s resolutions in 2015:

“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.” - Abraham Lincoln.

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson.

 “One resolution I have made and try always to keep is this: To rise above the little things.” - John Burroughs.

 “Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.” - Brad Paisley.

As always, our members are those who strive each and every day to make our profession what it is- an honorable, just and trustworthy one with professionals coming to the aide of each and every family’s needs in their darkest hour.  I hope that you will find the inspiration you need to keep doing what you do- and remember that our membership is here to support that effort each step of the way.  Cheers to an industrious and fulfilling New Year!
