Coming up with a New Year’s resolution can sometimes be tricky.
As some people do not have any new resolutions, others are hoping to start the year off with a blank slate. People like Joshua Bradshaw, said they are just trying to improve their overall lifestyle.
“I wish for my life to get a little bit better, but other than that I think that is about all. Working really hard and trying to make sure I keep my job,” Bradshaw said.
Most people correlate the New Year’s with a time to set their goals, whether it is exercising more, to eat less, or just flat out performing your best. Local resident, John Fleshman, said his goal is to improve his skills in the kitchen.
“To start cooking, I know how to cook like oatmeal and stuff like that, I am just trying to learn how to cook steak and chicken,” Fleshman explained.
While some are looking to eat more, others are looking to eat less. Dexter Justice said he is just trying to shed some pounds.
“Get in shape and lose weight, planet fitness.” Justice said.
Whether it is getting in shape or learning a new hobby, it is understood most people are just looking for what makes them the happiest. For Rose Petry, that is her family.
“My new years resolution is for all of my family to be happy, peace love and joy,” Petry said.
