Happy New Year! I can’t think of a better way to start the first day of the year then by writing. I hope everyone made it home safe, no DWI’s, no waking up to someone you don’t remember going to sleep next to.
Today I want to talk about this backlash on New Years Resolutions. I’ve been seeing a lot of people knock others for saying they’re going to change their lives or get rid of certain people. It’s almost become taboo to even say you’re going to change because so many are attacking you for it.
But I’m here to tell you to make all the resolutions you want! It’s your life and if you want to claim a fresh start, become a better person, be around better people. Do it! This is the thing not a lot of people admit…
Just because you have friends or a mate that’s bad for you doesn’t mean they aren’t good for you. So it’s not easy to just get rid of people.
“Why wait until January 1st to change, change now.” <— I despise that sort of talk because change isn’t easy, if it was a lot of us would be in much better situations. And the thing that bothers me most about it is it’s usually the people that are in bad situations that are judging the loudest.
I write a lot, I write a lot of statuses, notes, blogs… I write about relationships and friendships. But understand something, I do it because I’m good at articulating a point or knowing what words to use that are going to bring out emotions. My life is just as confusing and can get just as lonely as anyone else’s. So don’t ever let anyone tell you that they have it all together.
The glass is always half full even when it seems like it may be empty. If you want to pick today to change, do that and don’t listen to all these people that are saying otherwise.
