What You Should Resolve To Actually Do In The New Year

Humor, Life

Every year you probably make at least one resolution that you don’t actually keep.. Admit it. We all do. I found this list of things you should resolve to actually do this coming year. Some I agreed with and some I didn’t so I edited it a little.

Stop posting negative shit on social media. Nobody wants to be pulled down.

Get outta town. Leave the country. Travel. If you don’t have money, look into doing charity work abroad. Some programs will sponsor you.

If you hate your job, quit your job. Don’t settle for anything less than something you love. Make sure you have another job lined up first though.

Stop skipping the gym on days you had plenty of time to go. But also, stop beating yourself up for skipping the gym on days you truly didn’t have time.

Make up with people. An ex. An old friend. Everyone has someone they could mend things with.

Rid yourself of enemies. Apologize for what you did wrong and forgive those who have wronged you.

Rid yourself of “frenemies.” Don’t spend 2014 surrounded by people you secretly despise.

Man up. If you find somebody attractive, say “hi” and introduce yourself. Every relationship you have ever had started with a greeting.

Take a risk. Leave your phone number for someone. Worst-case scenario: you won’t get a call and maybe you’ll feel a tiny bit embarrassed. Regardless of the outcome, you put yourself out there and probably made the other person’s day.

Cross something off your bucket list. Don’t make excuses as to why you can’t accomplish something.

Stop hating yourself for eating dessert. A piece of birthday cake is a right, not a privilege.

Keep a journal. It doesn’t have to be something you use daily, but documenting your experiences is incredibly important. You’ll appreciate it later.

Blood is thicker than water. Strengthen relationships with family members.

“Pay it forward.” Help strangers.  Do good things for the world — and don’t post a Facebook status about it.

Conquer a fear.

Unplug. Turn off your smartphone at dinner.

Try a fashion trend you never thought you could pull off. And, do it with confidence.

Cry. When you’re happy and when you’re sad; embrace your emotions as they come.

Stop being so shallow. Next time you find yourself judging someone based on his or her appearance, put yourself in their position.

If you want someone to commit to you, vocalize it. Don’t settle for being something to someone if that isn’t what you want.

Original list.

My additions:

Do something that you don’t have the courage to do. Stand up to someone, voice something you’d normally keep to yourself..

Save money. Budget your earnings and start thinking about the future.

Learn something new. Something small, something easy, something difficult, anything just learn something.

Don’t wait. Do things sooner rather then later. Anything as small as cleaning the dishes now instead of during a commercial break or as big as taking that trip to Greece this year instead of just saying your going to do it sometime…

Stand up for someone. Show some hope for humanity.

Step away from the screen. Use your lunch break to take a walk or read a book. Get up from your desk and get away from the computer screen.

Stop hitting snooze. Wake up earlier and get your day moving before everyone else.

I think I’m going to definitely add some of these to my resolution list. What are you going to resolve to do in 2014?
