Yeah, you heard me. Resolutions are overrated.
The only resolution I’ll be able to actually keep, because resolutions shouldn’t be the reason we choose to make a change; instead, they’re short-term placeholders for a happier self.
This year, I started going to the gym. I admit, I fell off for weeks at a time, but never quitting is the difference between you and a happier, healthier self.
Next year, I’ll be done school. There was a time this year I almost forfeit my degree because I felt like there wasn’t a point, but not quitting is the difference in how proud I’ll be when I cross the stage in 2017.
Your life is a constant work in progress and a year from now you’ll wish you started today. This year, resolve to get up every time you fall down.
