Happy new year, I hope this finds you well?
Have you made any resolutions? Less drink? Less food? More exercise? To find the perfect man? A cure for cancer?
Good on you. I mean you’ve only failed to deliver against them every year of your miserable life, but still you persist…that my friends takes balls…..balls and a freakingly tiny brain. Ask yourself why you are making a resolution….because it is New Year, right? And that is what people do, right?
And then they FAIL.
Because it is a stupid, fuck-headed, naive and totally pointless thing to do.
If you have something that you want to change in your life, that you REALLY believe you need to take action on, something that is so important to you that you’ll break the shackles of habit and inaction then you will already have started to do it. You haven’t because either you don’t want to or you are just plain incapable of it.
I don’t blame you for that…..I don’t think it makes you weak. I think it makes you human. Humans are beautifully imperfect. And that is why we lemming like follow traditions that we know are pointless and absurd. The 1st of January is no different to any other day of the year. Resolutions made at New Year are statistically more likely to fail than those made at other points in the year, but hell everyone else is doing it so why don’t we?
You want my advice? If you’re ready to make a change, you’re ready regardless of the time of the year. If you’re not, don’t fall for the commercial pressure and the dumb witted group think. Wait until you are, wait until you know what you want to achieve and you have the resources to do so. Not only will you feel more like you own the change, you’re more likely to stick at it and be successful.
And after all….that is the whole point of it, right? Or am I missing something…..?
