What is a New Year’s Resolution?
For many people, the first day of the year is a time to “start fresh”. That is, a time to examine your life and decide what things you can do to make yourself a better person. When you make a promise to yourself to change your life for the better, it is called a New Year’s Resolution.
Last year, I resolved to myself that I would quit smoking in 2010. Smoking is a nasty and unhealthy habit, and I knew that it was very important that I quit. It took several months to honor my New Years Resolution, but I finally stopped! Even though it was VERY difficult, I’m glad that I made the resolution.
