In the new year, my Facebook newsfeed is spammed with everyone talking about new year resolutions
It got me thinking –
Every new year, we resolve to do the same things
Become slimmer, be more successful, spend time with family, save money.
We write down all the resolutions of 2014.
but what makes me think is that, these new year resolutions. They get forgotten in a matter of months.
We don’t change, just because it is a new year.
Every day, we go through minor changes. Normally these changes occur because of the people around us – what they say & do. We get inspired, demoralized, happy, sad… etc.
But for a major change, normally it takes great decision and determination to make it happen.
And most of the time a major change can only happen when something, or someone you met in your life greatly affect the way you think and live.
It could be an event that is life-changing, good or bad.
People change when the pain of staying where you are is more painful than the pain of growth.
We change only when we can no longer accept the circumstances and situation we are in.
Like the bad relationship you are in.
Or the job you are doing only for money.
or the toxic friendships you are keeping.
To me, change doesnt come simply with a new year.
It comes with a decision and knowing what you truly want.
