A new year and as the saying goes, a new you, right? Some people want to lose weight, others want to grow professionally. Whatever the goal, we begin the new year with high hopes for change in our lives.

What about our relationships with others? Have you had an argument with someone in 2014 or prior that has not been resolved? What if that person passed away and you did not have the opportunity to apologize for your part in the conflict? Would you regret it?

While we focus on the things we want to change about ourselves in 2015 it is also important to focus outward. How are our relationships with others? Is there a family member you miss, is it a long lost friend? Whatever the issue, today is a new day. 2015 is a new year. There is no time like the present to confront our old conflicts with others. Even if you cannot see eye to eye a simple apology for your part can help close old doors and open new ones. Create closure and the ability to move on to all that 2015 has to offer with a clean slate.

Happy 2015!
