Raw Meat for "Resolutions"

I may write more, even a lot more, about New Year's Resolutions. Or not. But when I sat down, quietly, to think about my stance toward 2006, a quote of Eleanor Roosevelt's drifted before my mind's eye: "Do one thing every day that scares you."

I don't know where I'll go with this, if anywhere—but it feels like a perfect, and in fact profound, stepping off point. (And I do believe that New Year's is indeed an opportunity-punctuation mark along life's path not to be missed or dismissed.)
