I have a problem with New Year's resolutions not because they often fail or because they're too difficult and not because I'm bad at them, either. I mean, I've only been alive for four New Year's! No, I have a problem with resolutions because people think that that's it—it's the one time to change. Now, don't get me wrong; we definitely all need change.
I have no idea how to ride a bicycle, and my little brother has no idea what a toilet is for. And some of you, yeah, you probably should get out of the house more. But one big decision probably isn't going to do it. Sorry.
So, now what? Flush your resolutions down the toilet? The one my little brother can't use? Of course not! Keep your resolutions, but go easy on yourself. Will you change? Maybe. But probably won't happen in one big moment—it'll happen in the thousands of little moments.
Every time you choose to forgive or slow down or be grateful or stay calm, each little moment that you choose what's right instead of what's easy, faith instead of doubt, love instead of hate—that's where the change happens! Even if you fail one or two or 30 times, it's okay! You've got thousands of more little moments ahead of you. You'll get better.
So, happy New Year! God bless. And I'm off to ask my dad to get a bike, either that or a pony. Bye!
