As our calendars change to ring in yet another year, we can often find it hard to take each other’s New Year’s resolutions seriously. That’s not to say they weren’t sincere at the time, but there’s a difference being meaning what you say in the heat of the moment on New Year’s Eve and committing to it a month later.
But sometimes, a resolution is so heartwarming and beautiful that it inspires the whole friend group to help make it happen together. And those are exactly the kinds of New Year’s promises we’ll be talking about today.
One person wrote, “I miss painting my nails crazy neon colors. I miss having time to wear crop tops while blasting music in my car on a midnight drive. I miss sequin short shorts with platform boots.”
