Whether you have loved 2016 or couldn’t wait for it to end, it can be enjoyable to think of the future and what you would LIKE to happen in 2017 (let’s be realistic!). Keeping in mind that you cannot control other people’s words and behaviors, a resolution such as “I would like my mother to stop being so negative,” is not your best wish given that you have NO control over what your mother says or does. HOWEVER, what is your role in the situation? Maybe instead you could resolve to not take her comments personally or respond differently to her.
Be brave- set a goal! Work towards positive change! Be realistic and maybe choose one or two, not 10. Here are some ideas of how to make and keep your new year’s resolutions.
