  • I have a problem with New Year's resolutions not because they often fail or because they're too difficult, and not because I'm bad at them either.

  • I mean, I've only been alive for four New Year's!

  • No, I have a problem with resolutions because people think that that's it.

  • It's the one time to change.

  • Now don't get me wrong, we definitely all need change.

  • I have no idea how to ride a bicycle.

  • And my little brother has no idea what a toilet is for.

  • And some of you, yea, you should probably should get out of the house more.

  • But one big decision probably isn't going to do it.

  • Sorry.

  • So now what?

  • Flush your resolutions down the toilet?

  • The one my little brother can't use?

  • Of course not!

  • Keep your resolutions but go easy on yourself.

  • Will you change?

  • Maybe.

  • But it probably won't happen in one big moment.

  • It'll happen in thousands of little moments.

  • Every time you choose to forgive, or slow down, or be grateful, or stay calm.

  • Each little moment that you choose what's right instead of what's easy, faith instead of doubt, love instead of hate, that's where the change happens!

  • Even if you fail one or two or thirty times, it's ok!

  • You've got thousands of more little moments ahead of you.

  • You'll get better.

  • So happy new year, God bless!

  • And I'm off to ask my dad to get a bike.

  • Either that or a pony.

  • Bye!
