Yes, yes, New Year Resolutions hardly ever last the year.
And, yes, we all know that putting a wish for self-improvement formally into words is no guarantee of anything.
And, yes, all right, I know we're all surrounded by people telling us that the Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions: but, as a matter of fact, the Road to Hell is actually rather seldom paved with good intentions.
Yes, that's right, folks: it's generally paved with the bad ones.
So good luck with the New Year Resolutions - and remember that putting things into words actually is magic, just a little bit.
Word To Use Today: intention. This word comes from the Late Latin intentus, a stretching out.
