All change here

Like millions of other people I get twitchy at this time of year. It’s the terrible toos. I’m too fat, too unfit, too poor, too lazy, too tired – too many things. So I decide to set a New Year’s resolution, and like most people, I’ll be lucky to even remember my resolution in 48 hours time. It’s not that I don’t want to be fitter, slimmer, richer – in short – a better version of myself, I do want these things for myself (and I tell myself these things are good for others around me too).
But the reality is that while things don’t always work out the way we plan, or our plans get changed, that’s perfectly ok. Change. Change again. Change today. Change right now. It’s not too late. Make a plan, take a first step. Don’t make it complicated, make a change. And don’t worry about the score, just keep following your path. Shed the things you don’t want, hold tight to what is useful or beautiful. After six months or a year, stop and look around to see how far you’ve come. You can change course or make a new plan from there. Have faith in yourself. You’ve got this.
