blah blah blah

It's January 1.
The start of the year according to the Gregorian Calendar.

Not mine.

Make your own resolutions, you're just going to break them. Why not make yourself this single promise instead: To live life. Your life, and not anyone else's.

Don't promise yourself you'll join a gym you won't go to, don't promise yourself you'll save money you haven't got.

Promise to live your life. That way, when you reflect on what life you want to have, you'll reconsider the extra-fudge brownie, for two reasons: you'll have saved twice over. Once for the $2.75 that could have gone to gas money or groceries, and twice for the 275 calories you didn't eat.

I've been trying to make an active lifestyle change. Not for the new year, not even for my upcoming wedding, but for me. For the fact that I want to live properly. I want to be healthy, and that's not coming from a gym membership. That's coming from the little choices I make that will inevitably make differences in the long term in my life.

Hi I am Sarah and I am from Oklahoma. I must I absolutely love your blog and this post. I think this is what people need to realize, is just live their life and not try to keep promises to themselves that they know they won't keep. You should just try to be a better person all around and just live your life and that's it. I will definitely be following your blog. Also, I invite you to check out my blog too if you would like: I look forward to reading more from you!
