New Year's Resolutions: Expectations vs. Reality




Happy holidays and a late happy new year. I hope each and one of you had an amazing time with your loved ones. You know that at this time of the year most of the people make "New Year's Resolutions" and I'm not going to lie, I was one of those people until I finally gave up and realized that just because is a new year doesn't necessarily mean that is a new me and that's why I decided to write a post about it where I show you the  New Year's Resolutions: Expectations vs. Reality.

Resolution #1: Lose weight

Expectation: This is one of the most popular if not the most popular of all, at some point of our lives we decided to lose weight but it's not Monday or it's December 29th so we wait for that special day, we get pumped up to start going to the gym, create a Pinterest board about healthy foods and another one about fitness stuff.

Reality: it's January 10th and the gym is packed so you decide to not go that day, suddenly you forgot you had a membership until they charged you the next month, that Pinterest account you had, you don't even remember the password.

Resolution #2: Get a better Job/Education

Expectation: This is the year where you're gonna get that promotion and you wanna start studying again, that 5 year school break is finally over and you're ready for college, on the other side you know in your heart that you're going to get that job.

Reality: You get stuck on your work and you can't stand your coworkers plus the pay is awful, you try to look for another job but can't find anything, is like all the job positions were taken in one day, that school that you applied didn't accept you and now is too late to apply for fall, well 2016 it's on its way right?

Resolution #3: Keep your blog updated

Expectation: This is one of the resolutions that I struggled the most, even though I wouldn't called it a resolution (because I set this goal all year long) but for the purpose of this post let's leave it at that. You make a list of posts that you're going to write, you get super excited because this is the year when your blog is gonna get discovered and you're gonna make tons of money out of it.

Reality: You sit on your computer for hours trying to think on what to write, while you do that someone messages you on Facebook and you HAVE to reply to them. When you finally start to type on your blank page you get a call from that friend that you haven't talk to in a long time so you leave the writing process for another time, next day you sit again and actually write a good paragraph only to realize that what you wrote doesn't make any sense and you give up your dreams on becoming a famous blogger.

The moral of the story is not to make New Year's Resolutions but life goals, and don't wait until the next year, start TODAY, those resolutions will not the accomplished by their own.
