January is here. How many of you are caught in the trap of thinking “what are my new year resolutions?” Only to find yourself disappointed or frustrated by the end of the month? I used to do that.

Recently my friend C and I were visiting on the phone and we were laughing. We were talking about how every, oh, let's say 28 days or so we tend to "disappear" and not talk to each other.
