So. First things first….WELCOME & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I hope everyone had a great NYE and that this year is everyone’s year! Be you, be true, and be great! OK so now back to the title of this blog post.
I absolutely DESPISE that saying. I mean who even came up with that? How in the hell does the new year have anything to do with you changing who you are? That idea is ludicrous! Yes, the new year does mean that it is a chance to start fresh…but that means you are starting the life you already led fresh.
I personally never go into a year with the notion that I am somehow going to be a “new me.” Admittedly there are some things that I plan on doing different, but there is definitely no new me. I am the me that I have always been, but with better decision-making skills or self-control.
Frankly I don’t want to be a “new me.” I want to be the same me that I have always been, because I love who I am. I don’t feel like I need to change who I am at all. Everything that I have done has been done with a reason or purpose. It may not have been a good reason, or even served a great purpose…but it helped mold who I am. And I am appreciateive for those life lessons.
Everything that you go through is meant to teach you something. So the idea that you need to be a new you is basically saying that you don’t like who you are. Whatever has happened in your past is not something to run from, it is something to learn from. So I would loooove it if everyone stopped with the “New Year, New Me” bullsh*t. Just be happy with who the f*ck you are and how you got to be that person. Live each day like it’s the best day, and each year with the confidence that this year is the best year. Trust me you’ll be much happier that way. You’re Welcome.
