2013 has finally arrived, and that means plenty of New Years Resolutions. Now, I have a strange view upon New Years Resolutions. I think it's important for everyone to make at least one, but it can't be something simple like "Be nicer." it has to require more thinking and effort. How are you going to be nicer? By giving back to the community? By making an effective plan, it's more likely you'll be effective rather then slacking one month in.
I'm determined to make 2013 the best year, especially because 13 is my lucky number. Because of this, I've decided to share a few of my New Years Resolutions with the world and giving examples of an effective plan.

♥ Keeping It Cool ♥First, I'll start with controlling my anger. I'm known for being awfully temperamental if someone does something that just presses my buttons that day. Yeah, I'd like to be nicer to people I don't know as well (I can provide good advice, that is, if I like you), but this isn't just for them it's for me. Anger can be good or bad, my focus is to get rid of the bad anger. Good anger can result to instigation, which has happened to me in recent years, and can drive you to do better. But bad anger can result to instigation that'll result in punching someone in their face. As a solution, I'm using a diary to vent out my emotions and learn some deep breathing exercises I'll do every night.

I hope this was inspirational (and hopefully interesting) for you! Get a start on those New Years Resolutions and most importantly, be who you really are, don't let other people shape you.
