Promises You Should Make For 2017

I promise to make it the best one yet.

Promises You Should Make For 2017

I promise to smile more.

In a world where the news is often negative, I promise to smile more. I promise to smile at the small victories such as seeing a cute dog on a walk and in the great ones of finding love, good health, and achieving my dreams.

I promise to eat better.

They always say your body is a temple, treat it well. I promise to watch what I am feeding my body. My body is my machine and I need to feed it the best fuel possible to make sure it runs to help go far in life.

I promise to exercise.

I am not making this promise in hopes of losing weight (that would just be an added bonus). I am making this promise because one day, my body is not going to work the way it does now. I want to enjoy the fact that I can walk and run without my bones aching.

I promise to disconnect from social media more.

Social media is filled with fake news, people hiding behind profiles, and negativity. I promise to put my phone down and communicate in face to face interaction. I promise to make connections with people through actual laughs not emoji’s.

I promise to enjoy nature.

Our world is becoming more developed and before we know it, we won’t be able to walk outside at night, look up and see the stars. I promise to read a book while lying in the grass. I promise to lay out a blanket and look for shapes in the clouds like I did when I was 5.

I promise to make time for family.

The older I get, the more independent I become and I find myself forgetting about the people who helped me get to where I am today. I promise to visit home, call my relatives more, and write letters to my cousins. I promise to treasure the time we have together and make it a priority to attend as many family events as possible.

I promise to love.

I promise to love those who love me as well as though who don’t. I promise to be the one to show love in a world surrounded by hate. Everyone is different and our world is going through change of people finding it hard to accept those different than themselves. I promise to love all the differences because those differences make us the same. I want to be the light in the dark place.

I promise to be me.

Times are changing and people are changing with it. I promise to stay true to my beliefs. I promise to stand up and fight for what I believe in without stepping on other people. I promise that no matter what, I will keep my innocence and love for the world.

And last but not least, I promise to make this year the best one yet.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
