New year new you? What’s matter with the old you?

 

New Year New You? What’s matter with the old you?

I don’t know about you, but I find that the minute the clock strikes midnight on the 31st December every year my email inbox starts getting filled with emails from just about everyone I’ve ever met, telling me I MUST DO BETTER because it’s a new year! I find this sends me in a fevered frenzy leaving me wondering what is wrong with me and why must I suddenly change just because the clock has struck midnight on a new year?

What’s WRONG with the old me? Aren’t I enough as I am?

I would argue that it’s not up to anyone else to tell me that I’m not good enough, I need to be left alone to figure out whether there are areas of my life that could do with a little gentle tweaking. And it’s up to me to decide if and when to implement those changes.

If I feel that I need to change then fair enough. but please don’t tell me I’m not enough and that I have to turn myself into some kind of kale-munching super bunny just because it’s the first of January.

January is a time when the rest of the world is taking a breather after the madness of December. It’s a time to pause, to reflect and to grow. To eat hearty food, make fires and take naps.

We can start the healthy eating, the jogging, and being something bright eyed and bushy tailed when the world wakes up in spring.

But until then. I’m doing just fine as I am, than you very much!
