Recently, I’ve become a bit tired of the whole ‘New Year, New Me!’ mantra that floats around at this time of year. It shouldn’t be about wanting to be a new person, it should be about wanting to improve yourself.
Self-improvement is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, you should be proud of taking the initiative to be the best version of yourself that you can be. This shouldn’t really be reserved for a New Year, but I do get why it is. It’s hard not to be reflective once one year is up and a new one chimes in. That’s why New Year’s Eve is the worst.
Anyway, so far this year I have already started to look after myself better, find time to concentrate on the things that matter and worry less. I’m taking each day as it comes. I can’t pretend that it’s been easy though. As my little ‘saying’ says at the top of this post, the first steps are often the hardest because you need to give in to whatever it is that is going to help you on the road to self-improvement.
For me, this was hard as it was something I hadn’t really properly addressed. But taking control, and making the most of things is how I’m approaching not just 2015, but life in general – no matter what happens.
