New Year New You? Why it doesn’t sit well with me

This is a phrase that gets batted around every new year, and it’s something that I have a problem with. As soon as the new year hits the diet companies start. New year, new you! What’s wrong with the old you? The old you got you to where you are, fought your battles and braved your demons.

There is nothing wrong with having goals and wants for the coming year but this idea of reinvention doesn’t sit well with me. Last year was a big one for me. Let’s review:

2019 Review

So all in, last year wasn’t so bad. Yes, it’s the end of a decade! That is a highly overwhelming concept for me! I’ve achieved a lot: Had kids; got married, got a degree, had a couple of house moves. I have goals and aspirations for this year. But I need to take it one year at a time.

But New Year New You? No thanks. I’m modifying the old me.

  1. Long time reader, first time commenter — so,
    thought I’d drop a comment.. — and at the same time ask for
    a favor.

    Your wordpress site is very simplistic – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?

    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my small businesses site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows
    (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback)

    Keep up the good work– and take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!


    1. Hi Justin, thanks for the comment, and the reading! I appreciate it very much, tell everyone you know how amazing I am 😉

      I’m using the theme “Aeon Blog” and sure, steal away!
      Good luck with your small business, I hope it works out for you, I commend your bravery at such an uncertain time.

      Take care of yourself also in this cray scary time!

      Stress less and be mellow!

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious
    what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours
    would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Hello, thankyou for the comment and sorry for the delay in reply.
      If you want to have a web page that you own, I pay 150 a year for this one run by word press. If you want a free blog (which means it will have “” at the end you can get it for free. Then it’s just a case of playing around with your hosting site unti you get used to it. Good luck!
