Hippy New Year
I always place the largest amount of expectations on my favorite holidays. Holidays, to me, are the highlights of the year. When I look back to 2010, I review it based on what I did on each holiday. There is a slight problem, though. Because I place so much importance on them, I want them to be perfect, and I always end up disappointed. It seems the more important the holiday, the higher my expectations, and the worse it is. I have really been trying to work on this. New Years Eve is my #2 favorite holiday of the year (#1 is the 4th of July), yet year after year it has gone for bad to worse. So, my resolution for this New Years Eve is to have no expectations whatsoever, so that I am not disappointed. Instead of holding expectations for New Years Eve, I am going to celebrate my accomplishments this year and look forward to the exciting year ahead of me.
