Work on your character not just on your exterior. No matter how a house is painted it cant make the inside finer. Likewise, painting your face cant improve your character. If your face is well painted and your hair is well groomed but within you are filled with resentments, 2016 is not going to be a better year for you. If you are carrying grudges in 2016, with which hand will you be able to carry joy? Is that not how you wasted previous years? Why not drop the grudge so you can carry joy this year instead?
