Out with the old and in with the new. As 2014 draws to a close and the new year kicks off at midnight, now is a time for reflection.
While parties are set to be held and resolutions are to be made for 2015, individuals can find ways to better themselves.
This an opportunity for residents to reflect on 2014 and remember how the time was spent in the past year.
Today should be a time of reflection on places visited, people met and changes that were made.
Resolutions to create a better persona can be made in the new year.

Every student deserves the chance to further their education, and on Saturday the Boys and Girls Clubs of North Central Louisiana gave nine students the chance to do just that.
The scholarships given out by the Club totaled more than $5,000, which the students can use at any type of school, in any state.
Eldonta Osborne, executive director of the club, said the scholarships were aimed for at-risk students.
Lincoln Parish has seen several fires recently, some of them severe. One fire earlier this week even resulted in the death of a Ruston resident.
For more than a month this summer, the parish — and much of the state — was under a burn ban. That burn ban was lifted when much-needed rain soaked the parish and lessened the chance of hazard.
However, Lincoln Parish Police Jury President Skip Russell asked that residents remember that fire is still a dangerous tool, even with the ground saturated with water.
More than 100 children and their families gathered in front of the stage in the Lincoln Parish Library’s Events Center last Friday afternoon.
Each child waited for the same reason: to receive their reading medal for accomplishing their goals during the summer reading program.
As they filed on stage, one by one, Margie Mealer, director of child services at the library, placed a medal around their neck as the crowd cheered, acknowledging each child’s accomplishment.
The program, “On Your Mark, Get Set ... Read,” set different reading goals for different age groups.
