New Year's resolutions

Dear readers,

As every year, and this one with not exception, during this month New Year's resolutions are in all places and conversations. It is becoming the right time for many people to achieve with or without success something which has been an obstacle for a long time. However, is it just a way to reach good intentions or just another manner to change people in order to fit better in society?

It is true that most of the times people need a chance to reach some of their goals, and Christmas means in some way a period of excesses. That's why people decide to give up vices of the whole year and dedicate some time to practice healthy activities for the purpose of having a better life quality which results being happier and healthier in most of the cases or simply for stabilize our karma and managed to sleep well.

Nevertheless, balanced people could think these resolutions are just another strategy created by society with the objective of changing people's minds. To see it with another example, we only have to take a look to San Valentine's day, we have the whole year to remember our couple how much we love him or her, but it is a way to commercialize an ordinary fact which take place 365 days a year. 

As I see it, there is no one single occasion to change. Unconsciously we are changing all the time, but some changes are stronger than others. I'm sure about that, because at the end of baccalaureate I was decided to put on a diet and go to the gym everyday. Some months before I kept that in mind and I was decided to succeed, in fact, I did it. Now, 7 months after, I have lost 12 kilos, and I am very proud of myself.

I feel that it is not a matter of planing something you know you are not going to be able to achieve, but bear in mind you are able to change when you needed or when you want. Human being doesn't have into account some times that is the only creature on Earth able to see his own progress and improve it. 

Best wishes
