TODAY IS DITCH NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS DAY
Ahhh New Year’s Resolutions. They’re a great opportunity to really set ourselves up for some magnificent failures and disappointments, amirite? Well, there comes a time when you just have to acknowledge that your New Year’s Resolutions were unreasonable and unrealistic, and that time is a fortnight into the New Year! Rejoice in your new found freedom from torturous diets and horrible exercise regimes, pick up that pack of smokes and down another glass of wine. Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day sets you free from your first mistakes of the New Year!
How to celebrate Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day
Well, this part is pretty obvious, don’t you think? Ditch those New Year’s Resolutions like a bad habit. They’re not really going to see you through the year anyway! Instead, as mentioned above, the best way to celebrate is by reevaluating your life as a whole, and start finding real and meaningful reasons to change, not just because it’s a New Year and that magically inspires you with Will and determination you didn’t have the year before.
