“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
Okay I kind of had to force myself to write this one but I ended up really getting into it. I want to talk about New Years resolutions.
Yes, it’s those stupid promises you make at the beginning of the year but break on the first week.
Every year I say that my resolution is to lose weight. That never happens.
I could if I really tried to. I also promise to study more. And be a better person.
The thing is I think that if I try hard enough I can be the person I want to be.
We could change our live in an instant. We could jump off a cliff. We could tell someone we love them. We could save someone’s life.
Jumping off a cliff wouldn’t improve our life but it just shows we are in control of our life. We have control and the ability to change our lives if we have the willpower.
I can be a better person.
I can lose weight.
I can study more.
I can change.
Do you know people say “be the change”. Well I never quite got that until now. You have to make it yourself, you have to become what you want to be and not wait for anyone or anything.
We can change our lives and the trick isn’t finding out how, it’s actually doing it.
It’s not about how much you want it, it’s what you are willing to do about it.
Happy holidays. Wish you a happy year with lots of smiles and happiness to come. Make this next year great.
Thanks for reading and what’s your New Years resolution? What do you want out of the New Year?
