Happy New Year Voyeurs! Whether you’ve welcomed in 2017 with promises to lose weight, get fit or just generally ‘do better’, I’m here to tell you that it really doesn’t matter.
That’s right Voyeurs, I’m not one for the New Year, New Me movement, I was pretty damn awesome throughout 2016 and each previous year and I intend to remain just as awesome throughout 2017, no matter how much the Debbie Downright Crazies (You know who you are, and thanks for reading ?) desperately want me to fail.
So, if you made a resolution this New Year and you’re struggling to keep it up, then take a deep breath, recalibrate, and shake it off. There’s no point beating yourself up about it as you’ll only slide further down the slope – and you’re way too fabulous for that.
Remember, the hardest promises to keep, are the ones we make to ourselves. There will always be an excuse to put yourself on the back burner, whether it’s the school run, work committments or just a plain old lack of motivation, it’s easy to make excuses for ourselves, to ourselves.
Me? I never make New Year’s resolutions because I’m a personal acevement saboteur and I kinda feel like if I want to do something, I’ll do it no matter what. But if you do, I’m here to say, don’t be so hard on yourself. Treat it like that weird 5:2 diet and if you can manage 5 days commitment out of every 7, I’d say you’re doing pretty well. After all, what does it really matter anyway?
So, Happy New Year Voyeurs, make 2017 your bitch and go be awesome. My words of wisdom for this new year are similar to those of Cinderella’s mom; Have courage, be kind, and don’t be a dick.
