As the New Year approaches a sense of renewal comes with it. New Year’s always feels as if life is just a clean slate that we can start on again. We can continue with how our lives are going, or we can wipe everything clear and do things the way we want. For many of us, the New Year makes us stop for a second and think about our actions and habits and the impact they have on ourselves and those around us. It is a great time to organize your thoughts and figure out what you want to improve in your life.
Whether you make resolutions or not, the New Year is a great time to look over what you’ve done and the decisions you’ve made. I don’t typically make resolutions as I can’t seem to keep to them, but this year I’ve decided to try again. I’ve chosen simple resolutions and goals for myself to encourage me to keep to them and I’m very hopeful that I will be able to accomplish them all. One of my resolutions is to fully accept who I am and to be happier as a person. I would also like to be kinder to myself and everyone around me. While thinking about my own resolutions, I was curious what other’s goals were for the New Year, so I went around the student community and asked many different people.
