New Year, Why Wait Now?

So it’s a new year and people are always making New Year Resolutions and never fall through with it, only because they hold off on it, or say they are going to start the next month and next month and so on. Some  resolutions people make:

  • ” I’m going to start eating healthier starting next year.”

  • ” I’m going to read more.”

  • “I’m going to start exercising….next year.:

  • “I’m going to cut a few people off.”

  • “I’m going to manage my money better.”

I’m sure you see my point, I personally think that you shouldn’t wait until the New Year, only because you should start the change while you are noticing that you want to make that change. If you want to eat healthier, start that same day or even the next day. While you are eating the McDonalds burger that isn’t healthy for you, just finish it up since you already paid for lol, and start fresh the next day, but don’t wait till the new year or in this case since the new year is here, don’t start the next month or a month before you are going on vacation to a beach. Start immediately because the longer you wait, dealing with health, it can get worse. That goes along with exercising. I’m no saint when it comes to doing either but I’m “slowly” working on it and I didn’t wait until January 1st to start. The longer you wait to exercise, the more you are going to gain weight, if you don’t eat healthy, depending on your metabolism.

When it comes to reading more, that is very essential to this day and age, mainly because of all this police brutality and racism going on, you don’t want to read the first thing you see; research, get the facts before you jump to conclusions. The first thing you may read is “Black Man shot by police for stealing from convenience store.” If you don’t do your research then you won’t know the whole back end of the story. I’m getting off subject but my point is, read! Try to read a book a month or every two to three months, just to stimulate your mind and have peace.

As far as cutting people, do it while they are doing you dirty and have you feeling sketchy towards them. Why wait till this year to leave ’em alone? You should’ve been doing that when the person was on some BS. It may be hard to fully cut people off, so my advice is to do slowly, then while there is the disconnect, let them know…or not, if that’s your thing. Don’t have people in your life that aren’t trying to better themselves. If your surroundings don’t motivate you then how will you better yourself? Some people can better themselves without having other positive people around them but why not have people in your circle that support you and that are positive influences on your life? Just saying.

 

 

Money management!! I know this could be hard but this is definitely an investment you shouldn’t wait on. If you manage your money right away, then you can invest in the finer things you may want, like a new coat, shoes, car, vacation, house, etc. Don’t wait, because something as simple as saving $5 once a week over a period of time, is a start, then eventually increase that amount. Every little bit counts.

  1. I notice that about people as well. A lot of times people don’t want to change their circumstances because they aren’t ready for something new. A New Year sparks new beginnings, but i notice it can be difficult for some when they actually have to put in the work.
