New Years Resolution  

Posted

I also wanted to give you a rant (hopefully a brief one) about new years resolutions.

It's 2009. This means we are one year closer to being able to say twenty ten instead of the ridiculous two-thousand and nine, that we will all age another year, that the days are going to get longer again, and that people all over the world are making resolutions.

I say don't.

At the beginning of the year, we all get ambitious about the wonderful things we are going to change about ourselves, but all we are really doing is setting stupid high expectations that we aren't going to keep up with past a month. Not to mention that the things we want to change about ourselves are the things we hate about ourselves.

Hating ourselves is never fun, and it seems to me that highlighting these things at the start of the new year is just a good way to start the year with alot of self loathing.

Setting arbitrary goals for yourself is not the way to self confidence folks.

What is? you may be asking, if you are the sort that asks random blogger girls those types of questions.

I say, fake it till you make it. If your not happy, smile anyway, just see if your day doesn't get better. Don't think you are beautiful? Look yourself right in the mirror and tell yourself you are anyway. You might think your lying, but do this enough time, I bet you'll be able to find the ways in which you are telling the truth. Can't lose those holiday pounds, squeeze into a size 2 anyway and see... OK, that last one is not a good idea. DON'T put too much junk in your trunk ladies. It is not a good look.

Anyway. That wasn't real brief, and I know it was a tad serious for this blog, but eh.

Love yourselves folks! Like the commercial says, you're worth it.
