Journal Writing Project: The New Year


By Kaysie Kerns

Posted in Mabel Journal Student Writing Project

It’s hard for me to believe that another year has come and gone and it is almost 2014. I can’t help but wonder where the year went. As I recall the year, I looked back at the three top news stories. I found The Jodi Arias Trail, Obamacare, and The Boston Marathon Bombing were the top three stories from 2013. The 2014 New Year represents an opportunity for a fresh start, and the year looks promising.

Not only does 2014 bring new things and a fresh start, it also means that a large chapter in my life is quickly coming to an end. I have been waiting years to say I would be graduating in a few short months. All good things must come to an end, which is very true. As scared as I am about ending this part of my life, another part is just beginning and I couldn’t be more excited.

For me, the New Year means still signing the date wrong for the first six months of the New Year and making resolutions I usually don’t stick to. Resolutions are promises you make to yourself to start doing something good or to stop doing something bad by the first of the New Year. So ask yourself: What resolutions or changes can I do in the new year to improve my life?

The three most popular New Year resolutions are to spend more time with family and friends, get in shape, and to learn something new. Every year an average of 88 percent of the resolutions made are not kept. The New Year is a fresh start whether or not you make and keep a New Year’s resolution. New Year’s is a time to reflect on the past year but more importantly look ahead into the New Year.

Although I am nervous and scared to end this year and chapter in my life, I know every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end. So as I watch 2013 slowly come to an end, I won’t be sad and reminisce about the past, but I will look forward to a fresh start and embrace the future.

I wish everyone a Happy New Year, and an opportunity for new beginnings and a fresh start!
