New Year’s resolutions have gotten such a bad rap lately. Everyone who is anyone is standing up and declaring that NO they will not fall victim to the big, bad New Year’s Resolution. They won’t wake up 17 days into January knee deep in self-loathing, another year begun with the best of intentions already gone.
But I don’t see it like that. I have never woken up after promising myself I would eat Vegan for the entirety of 2012 only to succumb to a block of cheese after a Bachelor marathon filled with rage (because let’s be honest-CHEESE MAKES EVERYTHING WONDERFUL). The way I see it is for 17 days I changed my life. Was it huge? No. Did I fall right back into my pizza loving, dairy eating ways? Certainly. But did I push my limits for a few weeks. Yeah-and it was awesome to live through. Each year I go into it with a hope to change or become better, to live better and to find new excitement, to try new things, to say yes more and no less (unless I want to say know in which case, I am the boss of me and I can do anything I want).
2014- My resolution is to find the beauty in life every darn day and then jump right in the middle of it and be fabulous. You care to join me?
I am not putting any pressure on you, friends. I hope you made a resolution, or didn’t. Stuck to it or threw it out the window when the light of January 2 streamed through your shades. But maybe, just maybe see if you can change your life this year. Start now or start in March, make a summer promise or wait until your holiday décor is back out but change it. Even if only for a minute. Cause it might just be totally awesome.
