With the holiday season in full effect and New Years on it’s way, we also have the wonderful time of New Year’s resolutions coming up as well. While promising that we’ll make better choices this upcoming year is a wonderful thing, I believe that the concept of waiting months, or even a whole year to change something you’re not happy about is crazy!
It’s awesome that we want to start hitting the gym, it’s awesome that we’re gonna stop smoking, and it’s awesome that we’re gonna start being happier this year but it’s not awesome that we’ve put off doing these great things for the whole year. Why do we treat ourselves with better lifestyles or better choices once a year? Waiting for New Year’s to stop or start something new is quite frankly, stupid.
This post is somewhat the same as one of my previous postings After Reading This You Will Want To Do It but right now we are going to focus on this idea of New Year’s resolutions. What the hell is the difference of changing our lives for the best on this magical day of new beginnings, than a normal Wednesday or Friday afternoon? Who came up with this idea? Who told us to make big changes at the END of the year rather than yesterday or even while you read this? Well I actually have no idea, but majority of us have grown up hearing about New Year’s resolutions. We’ve seen our parents and family members make drastic changes from one day to the next, we’ve seen friends start going to the gym the day after New Years, and some us have even witnessed the explosion of new people on treadmills at our gyms. We have to stop waiting for the end of the year to make changes, they have to start now.
If you’re unhappy about something in your life do something about it and change it. Don’t just sit there and wait it out, because it won’t go away unless you do something about it. This obviously means don’t wait for the ball to drop in Times Square to make the changes. We should start a new trend called weekly or monthly resolutions. For example, if you want to start reading, start this week or if you really have to prepare mentally, start next month; not next year. Waiting for it to turn 12 o’clock on the last day of December to bring our lives closer to what we want really want is such a waste a time. If we want to change, if we want something, we have to start right away or else we start giving ourselves excuses and we might just end up saying “I’ll start next year.”
