Resolutions

With February just around the corner, I assume many of you, like me, have already ditched your New Year’s resolutions.

It’s surely a bit cynical of me to say that, but I don’t think it’s something that should bring us any shame or disappointment.

The issue isn’t a lack of willpower or stick-to-itiveness, but rather the pressure society places on individuals at the beginning of every year to change something about themselves.

The reality is that introspection and self-improvement isn’t a one-size-fits-all endeavor.

Resolutions are great for the people who can make them work (and more power to them), but for the rest of us, there lies the potential feeling of failure at dropping our plans early.

But we’re not failures.

I suggest that, rather than tying the notion of bettering yourself to a brand new calendar with a resolution, we should revolutionize the idea of self-improvement by making it a year-round activity that you can pick up and put down as life deems necessary.

Don’t feel dissuaded by setbacks or hiccups in your attempts.

We’re all trying our best, and if you do happen to drop the ball, don’t be afraid to pick it back up again.
