A resolution, according to Mr. Webster, can have six different meanings that include anything from chemical compounds to significant events in literature. Around New Years, however, there is one definition best fitting the popular mood that is found in sub-section C of definition one: the act of determining.
In our culture, the New Year’s Resolution is a time honored tradition, a pledge made with a clean slate with the hope for a fresh start. Millions become determined to change something about themselves or their lives—quitting smoking, losing weight, organizing their home, getting finances in order, or volunteering more. Though some are more serious than others, the start of a new year makes us ponder our lives, all past, present, and future moments of them; the good, the bad, and the ugly.
It is no different for us at Homer Smith Insurance. From our first client in 1950 to the beginning of 2010, we are still dedicated to the continuation of providing our customers with the best service possible. We’re doing something right with nearly 60 years in the insurance business, but we know the only way our success can continue is through you. Indeed, it is the only way our success is possible.
As the New Year approaches, like you, we at Homer Smith reflect on the year that has passed, and the one that is to come. As Robert Burns admonished, we remember our old acquaintances, resolving to continue our tradition of faithful service to the community and its residents. And we promise that to our resolution we will hold fast and true.
So as we gather at parties and celebrations to ring in the New Year and raise a glass to auld lang syne, let us toast also to our resolutions and their fulfillment. They’re different for all of us, but they all share a common goal—to make our lives, and the lives of those we love, better.
Happy New Year!
