Happy New Year!!
For as long as I can remember, the first few weeks of the New Year consist of people trying to keep up with the new year resolutions they recently made and having the “New year,same me” argument.
I think resolutions are GREAT. I am a huge advocate for writing down your dreams and watching them come true, of course that comes with planning and breaking them down into small attainable goals (aka New years resolutions). The problem is that we aren’t always consistent with keeping up with our resolutions and come February we have already forgot that we made them. I am super guilty of this.
Let’s be better this year.
Put your goals in your calendar (or planner), set reminders on your phone, write out a list of your goals and put it somewhere that you’ll see it every day, have an accountability partner, DON’T GIVE UP.
Let’s run towards those resolutions this year.
I believe in you.
New Year, New Me
A lot of people are strictly against this saying. Some argue that the New year doesn’t change them and that they are still the same person that they were on December 31st. While I agree that people don’t completely change from New years eve to New years day, I can’t help but find some faults in the “New Year, Same Me” statement.
Every year,as we look forward to the next 365 days, we come up with resolutions.These are meant to help make the new year better than the last. A lot happens in a year and whether you didn’t accomplish last years resolutions, only accomplished a few or met all of your goals; I think we can all agree on ONE thing, You are not the same YOU that you were a year ago (at least I hope not).
If we were looking to be the same person that we were before the new year then why do we make resolutions?
I’ll tell you why.
Because we crave change, evolvement. We want to be better versions of ourselves. We want to grow. And staying the exact same for a year is boring.There are new things to learn, bad habits to get rid of, and more adventures to come.
Every year brings on new challenges, new opportunities to grow and be a better version of yourself. In 365 days, a lot can change (and a lot usually does change, even if we aren’t mindful of it).
I pray this year is full of surprises, met resolutions, radical growth and renewed mindsets and that we are mindful of the growth happening inside and around us.
Cheers to better versions of ourselves.
New Year, New You ( and me).
May your year be FULL of Growth and love.
