So? These resolutions...

How are they working out for you so far?

Yeah, you know the ones I'm talking about. The ones you made on January 1st, and that are fading away more and more as the year passes.

New year, new me!

Yeah right.

Please excuse my septicism, the point I'm trying to make here is not negative, I promise!

I would actually like to openly question this need, this urge to make resolutions.

The more I think about it, the more I realize it is simply about wanting to grow. Somewhere in between this human concept that is evolution, and this other idea of growing that we impose on ourselves (or that society impose on us, but this debate will be for another time), I just want to reach the better version of myself.

Between you and I, isn't it normal to constantly try to evolve as a human being? Like, when I go to bed at night, if I fall asleep with the impression of being a better person, I deserve a big self five.

This is why I make resolutions.

To get out of my comfort zone, because by staying in it, I feel like I'm not moving forward. By making resolutions, I feel like I allow myself to question my life, my habits, this comfort zone so personal to every individual (#mymudgirlevolution) and to review my perspections on the goals and objectives i've set for myself.

My resolutions have become my plan.

Even when the last seconds of 2019 will pass, and realize I only managed to respect one of my many resolutions, it will still be one step further into the direction I chose, the road I want to take.

One more step towards the better version of myself.
