We suspect it has something to do with the nature of the resolutions themselves -- which seem, much to our joy, to be evolving. Lasy year, for instance, we reported that according to a study by the University of Scranton's Journal of Clinical Psychology, the top 10 resolutions of 2015 included things like losing weight and falling in love.
And while this year's top 10 resolutions, according to a survey conducted by the Statistic Brain Research Institute, are similar -- "self improvements," "find the love of my life" -- we noticed a new one on the list: "Learn something new on my own."
Looking for ways to be festive? Trying not to break the bank? This month there are plenty of opportunities to have fun and still be cost conscious!
Animal lover? The Dallas Zoo has many photo ops this December with their seasonal light display. Admission is $17 per adult, but this includes access to a full day at the zoo and then admission to the light displays that night.
Love festivities? Grapevine is hosting a variety of events this winter. With light shows, glassblowing, and parades (to name a few), there are plenty to do for those who wish to keep costs low.
Closer to Dallas? Attend the holiday show and tree lighting at Klyde Warren Park! They will have concessions and free family-friendly activities and displays. All of this will be taken place December 7th at 2pm.
Looking for Instagram-worthy shots? Vitruvian Park in Addison has a memorable light display, Vitruvian Lights, lasting for the rest of the year. There will be plenty of wonderful displays for your inner-photographer to utilize.
Whether you are in Fort Worth or Dallas, no matter what holidays you celebrate or don’t celebrate, no matter your age, there is something for you this December
Leaves are turning, a fresh chill is in the air, and I hope you are finding many things to be thankful for this fall. Fall is a time to get close with family and friends, take a look around, and enjoy the great memories you’ve made this year.
These days we are bombarded with ads and influencers telling us we need to buy more, or we need to be more. It seems like every time we look at Instagram there’s something else we don’t have. As we go through life there is always something more to be wanted, something else to be had, and our happiness becomes focused around getting the next thing, never satisfied.
If you’re reading this you probably have internet access, a place to live, and something to eat for your next meal. That’s more than billions of people have in this world. Take a moment today to focus not on what you want, but what you already have. You’ll soon see there’s a lot to be grateful for. This fall, spread joy and love because we are all so lucky to be here. Have a happy Thanksgiving!
