Don’t Allow A New Year’s Resolution To Hold You Hostage
We are officially six days into the new year of 2021. One thing I used to do and I am sure many of you have done in the past was to make a New Year resolution. It doesn't exactly matter what it is. It could have been to give up drinking, settle down, stop going out as much, quit smoking, or the most obvious one, which is to lose weight and become healthier.
I have thought long and hard about this, and I have come to the conclusion of how hard it can be. Another thing is how much we really blame ourselves for what we may feel is failure. I talked about it during my show on yesterday, about the peer pressure of making resolutions. I have personally dealt with making resolutions to losing weight, getting off to a great start, and then falling off.
This made me feel guilty, pressured, and really down on myself. As I mentioned during my radio show, we have to stop doing that. Sure, we make the resolutions to keep, but we may fall. If we fall, we need to get back up and pick up where we left off. Stop putting yourself under the guilt of feeling like you failed, when in all honesty, we are all human and mistakes will be made.
Don't stop! This is a new year, and we are going to do things bigger and better. We are going to work on our health so we can be here for our families and loved ones. And if we slip once or twice, we don't need to feel guilty about it. We will simply start it again and not look back. One of the biggest contributors to our demise is stressing about things we lose grip of can't control. We will do better this year, and I will be right there with you.
