Why I hate NY Resolutions


One of my biggest pet peeves is New Year's Resolutions. Why? Because no one actually keeps them.

It's a facade. It's an excuse for people to feel better about themselves for a month and then return to old habits. To make a change in your life, you don't need January 1st. You don't need a new year. You need a desire, motivation , self-control, and determination to change yourself for the better.

Be it with your body, your job, your love life, whatever floats your boat - You have the power to change your life any day of the year. Don't give January 1st it's superficial strength just because you are supposed to. You should do it because YOU want to. 

I am a true believer in working for the life you want, and just succumbing to status quo about resolutions will not be enough to keep your dream running. Change needs to come from the heart, regardless of what day or time you decide to start.
