I was never the kind of person who understood the point of a New Years resolution. Of course, I understand the concept of wanting to start a new year with a new mind-set or lifestyle change but I’ve always been the kind of person, who if I wanted to change something, the best time was to do it now, at the very least begin first thing tomorrow.
The biggest resolution seems to be exercise. Gym’s offer new years discounts, knowing most of the people who join will quit going within a short time. Another is eating healthy. They find diets, recipes and write up shopping lists in order to better themselves.
The truth is most resolutions only have a shelf life of 2 months, if that. People get through the first two stuck to it, and then they miss one day. “I’ll try again tomorrow.” Go another week, and then miss again. They start to fall off the wagon. And once you slip up too many times, you think “Well I guess I’ll have to wait till next year to change my life.”
Well, here’s my new proposition for you: Instead of waiting for a “Resolution” to change, start anytime. You don’t need a calendar date to tell you how to live your life, or when to start making changes toward it.
Want to be healthy? Start now. Want to get organized? Start now. Got a goal? DO IT! DON’T LET YOUR DREAMS BE DREAMS!
And sure, it’s right around the New Year, but don’t look at it as New Year’s is the only time that you can make those changes! You just have to do them, regardless of when! If you’ve got a goal, it’s your goal, and it doesn’t fit on a calendar.
The world is your oyster, so don’t wait till January 1 to eat that oyster. …Wait What?!
