You hear it all the time. I guarantee it. "I'm going to eat healthier", "I'm going to start working out". While these are admirable things to push yourself towards, I can't help but disagree with the idea that we can only better ourselves when the New Year has arrived. I can't help but question why we live in a society where it is easier to push things off until the next year, only to never do what we so eagerly promised we would.
There is nothing wrong with having a New Year's Resolution. In fact, it is a great way to start to make yourself the best version of yourself. But I can't help but ask, why? Why can we only publicize our desire to be better this one day of the year? Why can't we tell our friends, our loved ones, that we are working hard to better ourselves. I am tired of being told that I am not going to follow through, when I know I am?
So I ask you, this year don't wait. Don't hesitate and don't make excuses. Make everyday a new year and watch yourself grow.
