I'm not too big on the whole New Year's Resolution thing
but I have to admit that I did make goals for last year.
In 2011 I:
- I successfully began to read up on and just general research on veganism. (I even had bouts of time when was eating vegan)
- Started the 100 theme challenge (didn’t finish, but I was doing that for more fun just so I could keep writing my poetry)
- Began running like crazy. (I was that one crazy college kid that was always in the gym even though I’m not in a sport)
Yup… So I just general things that seem like fun and would be awesome to do. I don’t make resolutions to “completely change myself”. Fuck that. If people really want to change their outlook, they can do so any day, any time, any where. No need to wait for January 1st or monday ect. If you want it, do it.
This is what I put on Tumblr. It just irks me sometimes that some people are making all these resolution, and to the people with real intention behind it, more power to them; however, the ones that just feel that "It's a new year, so it's gonna be different now". No. It's not like the universe is just going to suddenly make everything easy just because it is now 2012.
This is why I am a proponent for people that start in the middle of the year or week or day. It doesn't matter when you start, just that you do. You are the same person you were yesterday... the only difference is what you do.
Enough of my rant. Sorry if this feels like a downer, but I'm a realist and I want people to do things because they want real change, not just cause it's a new year and everyone is saying "I want to lose weight"
happy new year!
