12 Funny Quotes About New Year’s Resolutions That Will Make You Laugh
The New Year is the time when most of us hope to magically transform ourselves. It’s as if we believe that the ball dropping at midnight is like a magic spell that will suddenly give us willpower.
And, while hope is high come New Year’s time, the truth is that many of us don’t keep our resolutions. Whether you do or don’t keep the plans and promises you’ve made for the coming year, at least you’ll have these awesome new year’s resolutions quotes to make you laugh!
#1: “What Can You Do Today That You Were Not Capable of 12 Months Ago? “(Unknown)
