It’s here

Another year has come and gone for all of us.

Last year passed by quickly, and we are on to a new year. This means a new start for many. At the start of the new year, many people create resolutions. I always have fun when trying to think of new resolutions.

When thinking about a new resolution, I try to think of what I want to change in my life or how I can improve it. I thought about the usual increase in exercise, but it always seems to fall through. I needed to make a resolution that is not like any other I had made. I like to try to mix up life; change is always a new adventure.

I love the idea of being able to make new commitments. I get 365 days to create memories and make the most out of life, so with some commitment changes it helps enhance my life all the more.

Taking on a resolution takes a lot of time and commitment. This year I decided to walk my dog every day for a minimum of 20 minutes. This benefits her and me by spending quality time together in the great outdoors. If I decide to skip a day, I have to make up the time. So rain or shine, I will walk my dog. She deserves more than just being confined to my yard.

I hope whatever resolution everyone takes on, they try harder than the past to keep their commitment. Whether it is to exercise every day or study harder, if you are making a commitment, stick with it. It may be easier to give up, but do yourself a favor and don’t. You will be happier with yourself when you actually complete your commitment.

Tell your family and friends about your resolution; you will be less likely to want to give up with others knowing who can encourage you. If your commitment is unrealistic, then you are more likely to quit, so don’t go too extreme. Try to make sure the resolutions are beneficial to you and others. Have fun with your commitments because if you don’t, what was the point in making a resolution?

Make this year the best year you can. There is always plenty to look forward to with a new year.
