RESOLUTIONS ARE GOOD FOR LOTS!
To many, the New Year is all about starting to be better. During this New Year Season, some people make a big deal about resolutions; and then there are the people make fun of those who make these new commitments.
You know what I say to people who make fun of them?
“Stop!” Stop being a pain to people who want to better themselves.”
To all of you trying to better themselves and keep “resolutioning” remember….
The thing that really counts is that you’re trying. You try to help yourself. You try to better yourself. You try to be nice to yourself.
OK, so, you might not make it past 4 weeks. Who cares?
Did you learn something? Awesome!
Did you take off the 5 or so pounds that you put on during the holidays? Great!
Do you feel more confident about yourself than you did a month ago? That’s amazing!
Now, since the newness has worn off, you might have started falling off the wagon a little bit. No longer are you just eating tuna fish and salad. You might not be going to the gym 2 times a day 6 days a week now, But that’s ok.
THE THING IS, …
once you start falling off the fast wagon, you can get back up and get back on a reasonable passed wagon. Don’t stop just because you aren’t able to run at top speed all year long. Find your pace, just don’t stop.
Keep in mind “No matter how slow you are, you are still lapping everyone on the couch.”
If you feel like a failure, because you did not stick to your resolutions 100%, keep in mind, you started and nothing is keeping you from starting again. You only fail when you decide to stop trying.
Instead of feeling bad, why not start a new commitment to yourself? Whether it’s only a month or you make life choices that go the rest of the year, there is nothing wrong with restarting.
Keep in mind, you are worth the effort, you are worth all the work.
Don’t let people tell you or make you feel that your resolutions are stupid, or won’t work.
It’s odd, any other time, during the rest of the year, when people make a decision to improve their lives, people look on it like a good thing. Don’t let anyone tell you or make you feel like you failed just because you started your journey in January.
Keep on working on yourself, no matter the time of the year, or how many times you need to restart.
