Do you feel the pressure every year in January to make resolutions and make this year the best year ever? I do. Our society puts a lot of emphasis on it. Sadly, this commitment to improvement only lasts at most 3 months. I think that our day to day life gets in the way and change is hard. As a whole in general, we are not very adaptable people. Do we really have it in us to change a major aspect of ourselves? I try to make my goals obtainable if something is too far out of reach you are setting yourself up for failure. Failure is not a good feeling especially in January. So here is my encouragement...baby steps and if you had a bad day/week keep trying. We aren't perfect and I think the act of trying and putting forth an effort makes you a better person. A step at a time towards the new you for the new year.
