My New Year's Resolutions

By Encarnación Real Linares

INTRODUCTION

Do you make New Year's resolutions? What is a resolution? A resolution is a promise. It is a promise that you make to yourself! It is a tradition for people to make resolutions at the beginning of a new year. There are different kinds of resolutions.

One type of resolution has to do only with oneself. You might decide to lose weight, to stop eating candy, to exercise more, or to watch less TV. Other resolutions might involve family or friends. You could decide to be more patient with your little brother, to be more helpful to your mom, or not to get into fights with your friends. Some resolutions are about school and the outside world, such as getting to class on time, trying for better grades, or not teasing the neighbor's dog.

If you manage to keep these promises, it will make you feel better about yourself. So, it's important not to make wild resolutio
ns that are too difficult to follow. Your promises to yourself should not be too hard to keep.
