It's A New Year, Not A New You

It's almost the end of 2015. Can you believe it? This year seems to have flown by and 2016 is only days away. With that in mine, the 'New Year New You' mindset is back in.

 Despite being a past follower of this little saying, I quickly realised how absolutely wrong it is. A different number in the date can't mean you're a completely different person, can it? Truth is, a lot of people say it because they want to get out of the habits of the last year. For example, I NEED to stop biting my nails in 2016 - a resolution I've made for far too many new years.
Does that mean I need to make a 'new me'? No it doesn't!

You're perfectly great, you don't need a new you! Don't let the pressures of being better in 2016 make you believe that who you are isn't good enough - you're you, that's all you can be! Sure, improve old habits. Change things you don't like about yourself.
Try your absolute best at things you wish you did in 2015 - But don't forget to embrace who you are and don't be ashamed!


  1. I've never really taken the "new you" part of it as meaning you need to lose who you are; I think this is one way of interpreting it, but not the only way. You can still be your authentic self whilst making yourself a better all round person. You're totally right that you shouldn't "believe that who you are isn't good enough", but this also shouldn't be used as an excuse to not continually aim to be a better person. Love your blog!

    1. I totally agree. Trying to make yourself into the best person you can be is a great thing to do, but don't go scrapping your 2015 self in hopes you'll create a new person in 2016! x
