2014: Best Year Yet

I hate when people say “It’s such crap that people say “New Year new me.” You’re still going to be the same person.” Yeah, you’re going to wake up the same person. There isn’t some Jedi mind trick that could transplant a new body in yours, but your mindset could be 100% different. People want to become better mentally, physically, and emotionally. We shouldn’t stop them by saying that their optimistic mentality is crap. We need to strive to help each other out and give motivation to those who need it. So, all of you who say “New Year, new me,” make all of the New Year’s resolutions that you want, you wonderful people. Become healthy, skinny, happy, confident, or whatever you want.

You can do it!

Wake up and be the god/goddess you were born to be.

Set a goal or a few goals, and stick to them!

John Green also has an optimistic view and believes that 2014 will be one of the best years yet. According to his video:

People in the world living on $1.25 a day has decreased from 43% in 1990 to 20% in late 2013.

Divorce rates are at their lowest levels since 1970.

Surprise pregnancies have decreased from 69 in 1,000 teens  to 55 in 1,000 teens ever since 2008.

Infant mortality has decreased from 46 deaths in 1,000 babies to 35 deaths in 1,000 babies in the last 8 years.

As of 2013, In the US, cancer mortality rates have decreased by 20% in the last 25 years.

Airfare has dropped almost 50% since 1985.

Internet speeds have increased 27% in the US over 2012-2013.

17,000,000 animals were euthanized in the 1990’s, that has dropped to about only 5,000,000 in 2013.

Malaria mortality rates in Africa are down nearly 50% in the last 10 years.

Literacy rates for women in their 20’s have risen from 79% in 1990 to 87% in 2013.

You are more likely to grow old, not be hungry, and be better connected to who you love in 2014.

IN SHORT, THERE ARE MORE LIVES AND MORE HAPPINESS IN THE WORLD. This means these statistics are most likely going to go up in the New Year.
