New Year's Resolutions - Just say NO
People have been failing at their New Year's Resolutions for 4000 years. What makes me think I could do any better? It's been three days and I have already failed. At least back then the Babylonians were offering their resolutions up to God in the hope of improving the crop. Now we just offer them up to ourselves, or our nearest and dearest, who have no choice but to listen and nod along. But what do we get in return?
When looking at the top new year's resolutions I mostly notice this.. we have to give up, quit, try harder, be better, look better and on it goes. I think if we were going to do these things we would have already done them. Its just too hard especially with a hangover. I don't know about you but if someone, or even myself, tells me to do something I just don't want to do it. It's the latent toddler in all of us. So by the time we get to the second week, or day in my case, of January we think 'bugger it' and go back to normal really wishing we hadn't told anyone. What we are left with is a little bit of guilt and a lot of self loathing. Perfect start to the New Year.
I like the old saying 'one day at a time' it's perfect for this time of year and any other. Instead of saying I must lose 10 kg this year then I will feel better about myself. Maybe just one day start the day with a cleansing juice and go for a walk. You don't have to do it, you never promised anyone one. You don't owe it to yourself. You won't get in to trouble. You might just decide to do it because you feel like it, it's a nice day and it makes you feel good.
Feeling good, no guilt, no self loathing what a great way to start any day of the year.
