Top 5 New Year's Resolution Fails

"New Year, New Me." The classic line that has become a joke over the years. Every year we all come up with these unrealistic New Year's resolutions that we know we can never successfully fulfill. But it's okay, I think you're perfect just the way you are. Here's the top New Year's resolution fails. I'm sure you've fallen victim to some of these, but if you haven't then I don't suggest trying.

"This year I'm going to lose weight."

Sure, it's a good thought. But you know this one only lasts for about a week and then you fall back into the trap of leftover cookies and unhealthy treats.

"This year I'm going to start saving money."

You've made your budget and have planned out exactly how much money you are allowing yourself to spend each month. But then your best friends calls and says, "Hey wanna go shopping?" How can you turn down an offer like that?

"This year I'm going to be less stressed."

This one is unavoidable. As nice as it sounds to live a life free of stress, it's just not the world we live in. Try to take some time for yourself and relax every once in a while, though. Treat yourself sometimes.

"This year I'm going to spend more time with family and friends."

The hustle and bustle of everyday life always makes this one a tough one. But if you can work in the time to spend a little of it with those you love, your days will be much brighter.

"This year I'm going to live life to the fullest."

What does this one even mean? Whether things are going your way or not, every day you wake up should be a day to be thankful for. Each day you are given another breath of life and that's something to enjoy. Don't make this a resolution, because more than likely you won't follow through with it. Instead, make this a priority to focus on every single day this year.

I wish you all the best in your New Year's resolutions, but if you fail a week into the new year, don't feel bad. Step back and remember what all you have and just be thankful.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation. It was the yearly benchmark announcing the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. It meant I was one step closer to regattas, swim meets and tennis matches.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.
