It’s January 3rd and the internet is full of quotes and people saying New Year, New You! I hate that saying! Mainly because it’s surrounded by connotations about weight loss and how people overindulged over christmas.
Being healthy is great and I’m all for that but the new year is usually the start of fad diets and unhealthy body image posts.We should all be trying to be the best version of ourselves, not a newer “shinier” version that’s lost weight.
This shouldn’t be about what’s on the outside but about self development, being happy and creating a better world/life for ourselves. Creating goals, doing things you’ve always wanted to do, giving back and not just thinking of ourselves, staying humble.
There is no guidebook and that’s not what I’m writing here. There is no set way to be the best you that you can be, that is for you to discover. Don’t get bogged down in the idea that this year you must lose weight to be of value.
We can all improve so again not speaking about what is on the outside but by bettering ourselves. Everyone can always learn more, do more, be more.
Why don’t you try Veganuary this year? take some risks, make that pitch you were too scared to make last year. Whatever it might be that you want to do, DO IT! Because this is your year, this is your time.
2019 should be a journey of self-discovery, improving yourself, your life and kicking ass! So make shit happen! I know I’ll be thinking hard about what I want to achieve this year and setting goals because I want to be better. Be proactive, don’t wait for opportunities to come to you or to be ready (no one is ever ready) so go do it!
I hope you enjoyed this post and that you check them out.
