What was your resolve for the New Year? Better eating habits? More time at the gym working out? Get back in the dating scene? All of these sounds great. They are healthy and appear to be steps towards creating your best self. But why is it so freaking difficult to keep these resolutions active? Why do we continue to make them year after year knowing they have a very low success rate? Maybe its because we like to hear ourselves say good things. The things that (we think) impresses others and somehow make us look good in the moment. Or maybe it really is our authentic self, peeking through the veil of potential barriers, gauging whether it’s safe to pursue this higher self. Contemplating if I should pursue this ideal self publicly and have other’s opinions attached to my epic success or to my shameful failure? No, no, no. Maybe I will have my resolution as a private goal. Full control, no pressure and no accountability.
