Screw the New Year's resolutions. Just be yourself.

I'm a bit late to say it, but HAPPY NEW YEAR! What are your resolutions this year? To get fit? Eat less crap? Eat more greens? Dress better? Whatever it is, I challenge you to quit it. Here's why.

I like a New Year just as much as the next person. The promise of a fresh start, a whole new chapter in the book of life and a million opportunities out there for you to seize is, of course, appealing. But instead of promising yourself you'll be a new and improved version of you, wouldn't accepting the person you truly are be more satisfying? So far this year, I've felt sick at the sheer amount of articles out there telling you how to lose weight; what foods you should be eating, what foods you shouldn't be eating, which exercises are the best for shifting the 'extra pounds'... it goes on. Quite frankly, I couldn't give a shit. I don't want to lose weight, I don't want to be more beautiful, I don't want to have flawless skin or to find out how to make any man out there fancy me. What inspires me is those women out there who are unapologetically themselves. Those who are able to ignore these poisonous messages and get on with their lives. Those who have learned to look in the mirror each morning and feel happy at the person staring back at them. They are the women who should be celebrated; not those able to give up sugar for a few months, or those motivated enough to hit the gym every day. Don’t get me wrong - if that’s what you like to do, then absolutely do it. My point is that you should do what makes you happy, rather than doing what you think you should be doing by society’s standards. 

If I had to make a resolution, that’s what mine would be. This year I’m going to be 100% me. And if you don’t like it, you can jog right on!
