That's the thing isn't it? It isn't about what we have always wanted to change or what made us unhappy in September but instead a date in a calendar tells us that we simply must think of a flaw and work to improve it.
Now, don't get me wrong. I am always someone that feels you should make the improvements you want to make. If there is a part of your life that is holding you back or is affecting your life negatively then you can make the changes you need to - if and when you want to. However don't allow the date on a calendar dictate that you must do that now,
It's a difficult one - because for many people 1st January can be the motivational date they need to make changes they have always wanted. It's the month of searching for new jobs, clearing out your wardrobe and making other changes you want.
Of course you can't mention New Year resolutions without weight loss talk and eating "better". I will say this - your body is your body and you are the only person who has to live in it. If you want to make changes then I will never tell you not to - do what you need to be happy! That said; don't allow the world that you NEED to change. Do whatever you need to do for your body but only because you want to. Your body, your rules. And if you do want to change anything about your body then don't use a marked date on the calendar tell you that now is the time to do it. Do it when you're ready and not a minute soon.
That said, if you are wanting to use the start of a new year to start a fresh then Sophie from Busy Little Fee has come up with a great idea - 16 in 16. Read all about it here. Her at lots of bloggers have put together the things that they would like to achieve this year.
