Why I’m not Making a New Year’s Resolution

It’s that time of year again! Time for all the resolution posts to come flooding in. I admire all you people that can make a resolution and stick to it! I, however, am just not one of those people. 

I have decided that 2018 is going to be an awesome year. I will try to make the best of every situation, and enjoy every second of life. But, no resolutions for me. Why? 
 The Pressure. 

Every year I make a resolution, then feel so obligated to keep it. Not to mention, people on social media saw that resolution, too. And, you know they’re watching. (Slightly joking, here) 

Sometimes, I make a resolution just because it’s what you’re “suppose” to do. Not this year! I’m livin’ the carefree life! 

I think I’ve just come to the conclusion, that life is too short to waste it on resolutions I may or may not keep. So, instead of making a resolution, I’m making a lifestyle change. I will be optimistic, excited, and patient with life. I will try to maintain a positive outlook, even when negative things are happening. 

I want to be the positive aspect in other people’s lives. I want to be a light for those in the dark. 

New Year, new me? No. Same me, but, with some slight improvements. 

So, here’s to a new year! Here’s to a fresh start for everyone. Here’s to making memories that last, and spending time wisely. And, here’s to all of you, who ARE making a resolution. I hope you see it through! But, if you don’t, that’s o.k., too. 

Don’t be so focused on the pressure of keeping your resolution, that you forget to live the best life you can!
