Making New Year Resolutions Are Too Good To Be True

People do not stick with them throughout the year.

Making New Year Resolutions Are Too Good To Be True

When it is towards the end of the year people get excited, because it is almost over, and they would like to start fresh in the new year. This is where making resolutions for the new year comes in. The most common resolutions that are made are to lose weight, get a better job, get out of toxic relationships, and to find new love. They are realistic resolutions, but the problem is that people do not stick with them throughout the year.

Here is a saying that I agree with, “Actions speak louder than words.” I am sure we have said this to people, or people have constantly reminded us of this when trying to prove a point. This especially applies to making resolutions for the new year.

People are excited to stick with their resolutions at the beginning of the month. But by the end of the month, they are tired of trying to achieve them. I am not afraid to admit, that I am guilty of making resolutions, and not hanging in there by acting to achieve them. It felt like a daily chore to remember the resolutions I made to want to change for the better.

Instead of making resolutions, you could make a bucket list of your goals, and write them down on paper. You are more likely to accomplish them by seeing them written down. Most people write down important tasks they need to complete every day.

Completing your goals will take a lot of hard work. Why should there be more stress added on to that? By using a bucket list, when you complete your goals you will feel proud of yourself because you did not give up.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
