January 2017 will be historic and significant, and hopefully a good start to an even better time ahead. While perhaps smaller in scale, our well-intentioned New Year resolutions are fun to utter yet harder to honor. Here are some from a few of our favorite folks:
I tend not to make them. I’ll turn 57 this year, and I’ve never married, so I guess you could say I’m not great at resolutions!
I give up sugar for the month of January. Then I eat it for the rest of the year.
To spend more time with friends and cooking intimate dinners for them at home.
Nicky Hilton Rothschild
To stay in New York more. I haven’t been on an airplane in six months, and I couldn’t be happier about it. I live in the best city in the world, after all.
Every year, my resolution is to stay above ground.
Dr. Samantha Boardman
To finish my book, hold off on the iPhone before 9 a.m. and after 9 p.m. and most important, to add value wherever and whenever I can.
To finish my decade-in-the making second volume on the Reagans, which will cover the White House years.
To carve more time out for me on a surfboard!
Here’s hoping your resolutions make you happier, not guiltier.
