Resolutions: Why They Do and Don't Work

Happy New Year! Colorful Bubbly for You!

 "Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us." ~Hal Borland

Winter break is coming to a close for most high schools. Once back in school, everyone will probably talk about their New Year's resolution.

Resolutions are common, and even a tradition. Everyone makes at least one.

Resolutions can work for many reasons:
  • It can motivate you to become better.
  • Resolutions help clear out past mistakes, and will create a fresh start.
  • You can complete your resolutions with other people, and help keep each other on track.
That's a short list. I couldn't quite think of other reasons to make a resolution.

Even though I love having that spark of enthusiasm in the beginning of the year, I am not making a resolution. In the past, I have usually forgotten about it by April.
