— "Have you made your New Year's resolutions yet?"
Perhaps you've been asked this question one too many times in the past few weeks, and you've just laughed nervously and changed the subject. Or perhaps you're one of the more optimistic types who has a full list, including a game plan on how you're going to stick to them.
Either way, when reality sets in, we all know that New Year's resolutions are often made just to be broken within the first few weeks or months of the new year. In fact, a 2015 report by U.S. News & World Report says some 80 percent of resolution makers go back on their commitments by the second week of February.
It's no surprise, then, that New Year's resolutions can actually make some people depressed, according to Psychology Today. Studies have shown that those who fail at keeping their commitments to themselves "experience lowered self-esteem, sadness and depression."
As we enter a new year, with new goals in mind, we should feel optimistic, not depressed. Whether or not we keep all our resolutions shouldn't affect our self-esteem.
So, when you're feeling down about slipping up or thinking about just foregoing resolutions all together, the following quotes will help keep you going.
1. Let go of the past.
Sneak peak at my 2018 cover page! ✨since I only just got my Leuchtturm last month, I am staying in it for the 2018 hence I wanted a pretty cover page to show the start of the new year ✨I love this quote so much and felt it was just perfect for the start of 2018!

2. It's never too late to try something different.
3. Embrace change and try new things.
Yay for FRIYAY 🤘🏼 The build up to new year is always a time for making new and exciting plans, thinking about change & wanting to be in a different place in the coming year. Health, fitness, friendships, career..... Do you plan to set some NY resolutions? #newyear #resolution #newyearquotes #eaglesteam
4. Don't miss the moment.
Cada año por esta fecha siempre escuchamos, este año que viene sí va a ser mi año. Pienso que cada año debe ser nuestro año por más duro que sea, porque probablemente no vivimos por vivir, y si es así necesitamos hacer un balance y un cambio urgente. Enamorémonos del proceso, porque para lograr una meta no se logra en 1 año, probablemente tome 3 o 5 años y los primeros 2 serán quizás muy duros. • Un año duro significa crecimiento. Pero si vamos a hacer que cada año sea nuestro año, tenemos que estar dispuestos a trabajar, a sacrificarnos, a hacer cosas que no queremos hacer, a salirnos de la zona de confort, a embarrarla, a llorar, a estar a punto de darnos por vencidos, a creer que no somos buenos haciendo lo que hacemos y muchas cosas más que conlleva tener el año de nuestras vidas. • Porque si esperamos que el año de nuestras vidas sea un paseo, prepárense para tener el peor año de su vida. • No seamos prisioneros de las circunstancias y hagamos que cada situación, a pesar de todo, termine teniendo un impacto positivo en nuestras vidas.
5. You’ve got this.

7. Accept your mistakes and move forward.
Para este próximo año, te deseo que cometas errores. Porque si cometes errores, estas haciendo cosas nuevas, estas tratando, superándote, viviendo.

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — Residents of a Seminole County, Florida, neighborhood were on high alert Wednesday because of an aggressive bear that killed one dog and seriously injured another one in recent days.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission set traps in The Estates at Springs Landing subdivision along Markham Woods Road near Longwood to try to catch the bear, which killed a dog late Tuesday, days after injuring another.
The bear tore through a pool screen Tuesday and grabbed Maggie, Russell Nusynowitz's 15-year-old poodle.
His wife ran into the home as the bear killed the family dog and took her into the yard.
The attack came two days after Rick Mann encountered a bear and two yearlings in his garage. FWC believes the same bear was involved in both attacks.
When his 5-year-old Maltese-Yorkie mix, Reese, barked, the bear attacked, clamping down on the dog twice.
"When she came back the second time, I grabbed whatever I could," Mann said. "There was a vacuum cleaner there. I started swinging at her."
Reese underwent five hours of surgery.
"He's got seven puncture wounds, a bruised liver, a bruised kidney, numerous lacerations," said Roxane Mann, Rick Mann's wife. "Just a lot of issues. But he's hanging tough."
Roxanne Mann said the bear opened the refrigerator in the garage and helped herself to the food it contained, showing no fear of humans.
"The fact that she was starting to leave the garage and then came back to attack for the second time was very uncommon for a bear," Rick Mann said.
Word is spreading about the brave dog that stood up to the bear to protect his owner. The veterinarian who has been treating Reese has collected more than $1,000 in donations to help pay the vet bills.

— The first memorial in the United States dedicated to the victims of white supremacy opens in Montgomery, Alabama, Thursday.
The National Memorial for Peace and Justice by the non-profit Equal Justice Initiative, or EJI, overlooks the Alabama State Capitol and seeks to shine a light on a terrifying chapter of American history that is rarely talked about: the lynchings of some 4,400 black Americans across the South during a rampage of horror and violence that went on for decades.
The National Memorial for Peace and Justice opens this week in Montgomery, Alabama. It's the US's first memorial recognizing the nation's history of racially motivated murders of black people. https://t.co/ozBP9aHqu6— Axios (@axios) April 25, 2018
“We need to find ways to live in this country and talk about things we haven’t talked about,” EJI founder Bryan Stevenson told The Root. Stevenson said discussing this shadowy part of American history may be uncomfortable for some, but he said it’s necessary in order to move beyond it. “It isn’t about retribution,” he said.
Our nation will always be held back from making progress on today’s racial disparities if we don’t acknowledge and come to terms with the brutal reality of our past. Here is a critical & powerful new contribution to that work, thanks to @eji_org: https://t.co/whs0rUo7b1— Senator Jeff Merkley (@SenJeffMerkley) April 25, 2018
Almost 25 percent of the victims of lynching were accused of sexual assault and nearly 30 percent were accused of murder, The Root reported.
The memorial was created from 800 hanging steel columns with the county and names of people lynched there etched into the column, including “unknown” victims.
The memorial site also includes the Legacy Museum: From Slavery to Mass Incarceration.
A two-day summit, which is part of the opening events this week, is already sold out.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police in Memphis, Tennessee, are searching for a man who allegedly attempted a robbery outside a Whitehaven home in broad daylight.
A surveillance camera captured the weekend incident.
One of the victims, who asked not to be identified, told WHBQ that his niece, who was visiting from Florida, took his gun and scared off the bold criminal after she saw that her husband was in trouble.
“She’s bold," he said. "She ain’t scared of nothing.”
In the video, the suspect has his right hand in his waist band as he stands behind the woman's husband. The victims said the man’s hand was on a gun.
Memphis police said Sunday afternoon the man in the blue jacket came to the Whitehaven home and asked to use one of the victims’ phones and then asked for a ride.
While the incident was unfolding outside the house, the woman and her uncle reportedly were inside the house.
Police said that after the woman saw her husband in trouble, she came out the front door with a gun and fired a warning shot.
The uncle told WHBQ: “She said she didn’t want to kill him, but when he fired back at us after she fired the warning shot, she said she was trying to hit him then but didn’t.”
Memphis police told WHBQ that the suspect ran toward the back of the house before getting away.
Police said they are reviewing this surveillance video to get a positive ID on the suspect. If you have any information on who that suspect may be, call CrimeStoppers at 901-528-CASH.
