Out with the old and in with the new. Say goodbye to 2013 and to all the times you have been looked past, skipped over, and done wrong. It is a new year and with new years come new resolutions. If you are like most people, then you outline a few things you intend to improve about yourself for the upcoming year. If you are like most people, then you also forget about your list by the end of January.
Why do we even bother to think of things that we intend to improve on? It isn’t very likely that any of us took time to really critique ourselves. Even if we did take time to reflect upon the things we did poorly in 2013, I am unsure how that would help make our resolutions more accurate.
The truth is that resolutions are just plain silly. People that wait for the first of the year, week, or month to indulge in their new philosophies find themselves making excuses before they ever put a single foot forwards. Don’t be part of that 30% that is waiting on the government to distribute resolutions others made. Be part of the 70% that can make this country great again. If you want to improve yourself, then do it. Don’t make a list and wait on a date to start the pledge. Whenever you find the initiative, drop what you are doing, and make that Day 1 of the new you.
I’m sure a few of you may be curious what my own resolutions are for this year. I intend on being just as fucking awesome this year as I was last year. I hope you will, too.
