New Year’s is my least favorite holiday* — it’s the holiday of anti-climax. We stay up late to count down to a non-event: “5… 4… 3… 2… 1…” and then nothing. I also hate the idea of anyone making a promise to themselves that they can’t keep.
But I did make a resolution last year — never to skip skincare before bed, no matter how tired I was — and that one actually worked out. Every time I thought about climbing into bed without it, I remembered my resolution. I’m definitely carrying that one forward this year, and I’m adding another: “never to poke a zit, no matter how much it looks like it wants me to.” Let’s meet back here next year and discuss how we did?
* Actually, I had a delightful New Year’s this year, and my makeup looked fantastic. I hope everyone’s was similarly enjoyable.
