It’s the beginning of a new year and along with that comes the regular New Year’s resolution activities that we all have engaged in at one time or another in our lives. I’m as guilty as the next guy. I’m good at making them and I’m good at breaking them. I’ve sworn them off and then taken them back. I’ve renamed them things like “to do lists” or “goals.” I’ve had big ones, little ones, long-term and short-term resolutions. However, my opinion is this: if it’s something you’re planning at the end of the year with the intention of accomplishing throughout the next year, then face it–you have a resolution on your hands!
With that said, I want to share my New Year’s resolution for this year. Even if you’ve sworn off resolutions FOREVER and you don’t do anything else this year, consider joining me with mine. I think you may find my resolution surprising and very easy to implement. It is one that will give you not only a sense of accomplishment, but a sense of security. My resolution is home security–no, not Home Land Security, just plain old home security.
With all of the craziness in the outside world that is going on today, I really want the peace and security of knowing my home is a safe haven for me and my family. So while these tips may seem like common sense and a little too easy, they were all actually given to me by law enforcement officials over the years. I am challenging everyone to join me with this little New Year’s resolution of mine–call it a “goal” if you must–but resolve to implement a couple of these tips into your homes, too.
And remember: keep an inventory of your possessions for insurance purposes, just in case.
