As the year is coming to an end, there are many people who post about New Year's resolutions and that the next year is going to be the best year yet for them. That's all okay to make bucket lists and goals for the incoming new year. It's great to celebrate yourself and vow to be a better person or change your diet. But more likely than not, these "resolutions" never work out.
I personally am not a fan of making New Year's resolutions or trying to convince myself that everything is going to be amazing next year. Persuading myself that I am going to be this more successful and happier person than I was before is foolish. I don't need to say things like "cutting toxic people out of my life for the new year" or "only surrounding myself with positive people" because I can do that any day I want. Whether it's January 1st or July 4th, I (and you) should feel able to freely pick and choose who you want to be surrounded by in your life. And you are.
Another thing, I don't have to wait until the next year to start changing my diet or working out more. Start now. This is the one of the most popular New Year's resolutions for many people and it almost never stays a commitment. To change what you eat and how you exercise is a lifestyle. Especially, if you want to stick with it.
I live life day by day. Everyday is a process, and progress. Whatever you wish to do, do it. DO not put this concrete thought in your head that you ARE going to do this or that. Do not out anymore pressure on yourself to reach these goals that you have. The more you think about it, the more you become obsessed with it, amf you will either end up burning yourself out, giving up, or having a mental breakdown because you are making something so simple, so complicated to achieve. When really all you have to do is just live.
Take care of yourself, and put your mind in the right place when deciding whether to come up with exotic New Year's resolutions. I know that whatever I want to do, or how I want to change, I will do it when the time comes. If I wake up one day and feel the need to make something happen, to be different. I will.
Everyday is a new day. Don't look toward the future with illusions of this perfect person that you aspire to get to. Look at today, and decide how you want to live today.
