While I find the idea of New Year’s Resolutions inspiring and a good idea initially, the tradition has seemed to lose its meaning as many holidays do. So while you’re posting your “new year, new me” tweets, keep this in mind.
The New Year rolls around once a year (obviously) and people take this a clean slate and new beginning. They begin making resolutions to better themselves such as going to the gym, budgeting more, spending more time with their families, etc. These resolutions stay in one’s mind for a week or two and then it’s back to the way things were before the clock struck midnight and you kissed a stranger in the corner of the bar.
These wonderful resolutions that are made should not be limited to one time a year. We should always be trying to better ourselves. The moment you realize something needs to change, you need to start changing it. Don’t wait until the New Year to start fixing the fact that you talk too much shit behind your friends backs and you haven’t called your grandma enough.
You’ll find that eventually time won’t be on your side anymore. That new beginning will come just a bit too late and you won’t have a fresh start after all. Stop making lists and start doing something. This January, don’t make “New Year’s Resolutions.” This year, aim to better yourself, always.
Happy New Year from Hookup Culture!
