My New Year`s Resolution
On New Year`s Eve we watched one of my family`s favorite movies, Jumanji(not the new one, the old one with Robin Williams is better) We also played games and hung out until midnight.
On New Years Day we cooked a big dinner, we ate corned beef and cabbage and black eyed peas. These are some of my favorite foods so I ate as much as I could while I had the chance. I`ve missed those foods so much while I`ve been in Japan.
Besides that, I didn`t do much. New Years is a very important holiday in America.
But eveen though I really enjoyed watching Jumanji and eating corned beef, neither of those things were my favorite part of New Year`s. My Mom asked my brother to get a fire going in the fireplace New Years Eve, and so he did. All afternoon and evening he watched the fire and kept it burning night long. My favorite part of New Years was sitting by the fireplace watching the wood burn and feeling cozy and content. There is something wonderful about sitting by a fireside, it makes you feel so at home and so safe. There`s nothe else quite like it.
So, I`ve decided for my New Year`s resolution is to be more conscious of the simple pleasure in my everyday life. Like wood burning fires, soft snowy mornings and hot cups of pepermint tea. I think if I can do that then 2019 will be a good year.
So what`s your New Year`s Resolution? And what are the simple things in your life that make it better?
