A New Year's resolution worth keeping

I’m really bad with New Year’s resolutions because I usually try to start them before Christmas and then they fall apart by New Years day. Oh, don’t worry their nothing extraordinary, nothing that’s going to change the world or even Brooklyn.

Oh, let’s see…
Not talking back to my wife.
Doing the dishes every night.
Making sure the kids brush their teeth.
Doing the laundry and remembering to
turn on the dryer and fold the clothes.

No, just boring stuff you know.
There’s no “got to quit drinking”,
“got to quit smoking”, “less drugs”,
“got to donate more of my time at the soup kitchen”.

No, nothing juicy, because it’s all very boring.

Oh right,
But then there’s a couple that work wonders.
They don’t cost anything and just make other people feel better.

‘Thank you” and “I’m sorry”.
They are so easy to say and don’t cost a dime.

When someone holds the door open for you.
You say…thank you

When you step on that person’s foot on the F train.
You say………I’m sorry.

Those four simple words work wonders and are
The easiest New Year’s resolution to keep.
And they may just change someone's world
today in Kensington Brooklyn.
