January 1st is really just the day after December 31st. It really has no more significance than any other month change. One day follows another…and for many, that is really all it is regardless of the words said. They will just go on, one foot in front of the other, basically doing the exact same thing they have been doing. And then, a year from now, complain 2014 was no different.
For many years now I have realized that if I would just stick to the diet I start on January 1 I will be thinner and healthier a year later. Each year I think that. And each year I fail, usually at the end of April for my birthday celebration. I fall off the wagon and just am too tired by the constraints to climb back on.
But not wanting improvement is an even bigger failure.
So think it through, pick one aspect of your own behavior that could use some tweaking and get to work. And next year, work on it some more a bit differently. One year, the effort may just work!
