Where Tatler shares its humor
Your local St. Mary’s minimalist is back, and I have more bad advice.
It’s January again, and you know what that means: New Year’s resolutions. The concept of using the new year for a fresh start is a very wholesome concept in theory; however, a little over half of those who make resolutions go one month into the year without giving up and only twenty-two percent last the entire year. I am happy for the eight percent and their self-improvement, but I have never fulfilled a New Year’s resolution. Not once.
This could be because I refuse to put any effort towards exercising or studying more, but admitting my laziness and lack of motivation will not help anyone else. Another reason for my failure, however, is that I aim too high. Having the same unrealistic goals is not going to help me or others who can’t seem to succeed resolution-wise, and trying to improve ourselves with baby steps might be better for everyone. Therefore, I’ve created my own list of bare minimum resolutions:
Any advice I give you is most likely questionable, but please take something from this: some people actually complete their New Year’s resolutions. They probably feel good about it too. You can be in that successful twenty-two percent, and maybe 2020 will be the year that we all grow, even just a little bit.
