Why New Year's Resolutions are Underrated and a Few of Ours

I don't know what it is with New Year's Resolutions getting a bad rap these past few years! Yes, it is true that you can and should create new goals, habits, etc. at any point during the year, but there is only one time of year that you have all of society to back you up. January is the one and only month known for new beginnings and thinking into the future. If there is any time to reevaluate yourself and strive to improve, it is right now! Trust me, if you can't set some new priorities at the beginning of the year, you will be far less successful at doing it any other time. Haley, Emily and I have jumped on the resolutions bandwagon this January and would urge all of our followers to do the same! I suggest setting goals that are measurable and specific if you really want to take this seriously. Also, write them down or tell a friend to hold yourself accountable! Here's ours :
