New Year, New You!

As we enter the new year, there is always a feeling of excitement. Though it is common for most people to make a list of resolutions they’ll never keep, the chance of renewal is something many enjoy. Aside from giant life changes, 2019 has the possibility of bringing brand-new experiences, emotions, and memories. This year will bring a lot of new moments for me, as I will be going to college and moving away from my family. My New Year’s resolutions are to live this year to its fullest, to say yes to new experiences, and to keep a positive mindset throughout.


It’s important for parents to note that just because we are entering a new year, their children will still be the same for the most part. We as kids sometimes feel as though there is pressure on us to somehow fix all of our issues and be better with every new year. However, the most important thing a parent can do is to let their kids know that all they should strive to do is to make each day better than the last and to make sure they are happy. Parents should tell their kids to use the next twelve months to truly get to know themselves and the things they want to accomplish. Parents should also let their kids know that they are there for whatever their kids need, because it’s a nice thing to hear from our parents.
