    "a satisfactory resolution of the problem"

Every year, we are all resolved to make changes for the new year.

I am determined to make 2017 the year for active change in my life. I have to stop procrastinating and making excuses for my lack of achievements. My lifestyle has been abundantly compromised over the last year and I am determined to do something about it. 2017 is the year that I will truly achieve adulthood. I think as a millenial, we are scrutinized for being lazy, wanting it all, lacking work ethic, fickle about our career choices, etc. But I refuse to fall into this category or description. I want to be proactive. I understand it's easy to talk about change, but action speaks louder than words. So I hereby declare that I will take all of this seriously in the upcoming year. I need to take control of my life.

No more time for excuses. Quit giving a shit about meaningless things, be a zen master and focus on you!
