Hands up all those who have made a new year’s resolution??
Ok, let me guess.
Losing weight? Giving up smoking? Becoming a vegan?
Yea, thought so.
How many resolutions have we all made over the course of our lives? I try every year to be a better person and if it’s not happening now it’s never gonna happen !
I don’t make resolutions anymore, it’s pressure that I don’t think we need. Are you really going to stick to never eating meat or dairy again just because its the first of January? I Guarantee that by February, you’ll be off to farmer Joes doing your own version of animal farm.
It’s ok. I’m not judging. I pledged that I would lose half my body weight in 2010. It’s 2019 and the only thing I’ve lost is half my donut.
It’s too much pressure for us. If you want to make a resolution that betters your life, just do it. Make a small change. Don’t wait for midnight at the end of the year to do it. This isn’t a fucked up version of Cinderella.
22% of resolutions fail after a week, 40% after a month and 50% after three months. It’s because your will power doesn’t just become a Duracell bunny on the 1st of January.
If you are only making a change because an age old ritual says you must, then you’re gonna fail.
If you’re gonna do it, do it today or do it in summer. Hell, do it on your birthday, or don’t do it at all. If you don’t feel you need to do anything then don’t. Just enjoy a new year. Nothing more, nothing less.
None of that new year’s, new you crap. You were fabulous last year and you’ll be fabulous next year.
Ease the pressure and dont make any promises to stop drinking . You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life.
I gotta go……… I signed up for dry January…I thought it said dry ginuary.
