Encouraging what the New Year brings

There is something about the New Year that is so refreshing! It is exciting to see people out and about, setting goals, and wanting to better themselves.

What I don't like is people discouraging this behavior! I HATE seeing Facebook post and tweets about people who go to the gym regularly complaining about how the gym is super packed now because people have set resolutions to loose weight and get in shape.

Isn't that a good thing? And shouldn't that be encouraging to know that some people have taken their health into consideration?

Wouldn't it be cool to see encouragement instead of complaints? Imagine if the people who have never been to the gym in their life were welcomed and encouraged to come again? They to could be come the "regulars." 

I also hate seeing complaints about how resolutions are so dumb because no one ever sticks to them...

Well that may be true, but at least they are making them. Some people go through really rough years and the idea of a new year is refreshing and liberating. 

I think before we post these complains and attacks we walk a mile in others shoes. Imagine an online community that encourages resolutions and goals, encourages trips to the gym, and makes everyone feel important...

There is my rant :) Happy New Year! 

If you the feel the need to set a resolution now or a goal feel free to link up with others..there are some AWESOME resolutions so far! 


  1. Right there with you girl! Everyone on twitter was all 'ugh, so tired of resolution/goal posts' but I can't get enough of them! WHY NOT be hopeful and encouraged and excited about what we hope to do this year?! YAY!

  2. I completely agree! What if the fresh start of a new year is all some people need to kick their goals into high gear?! People who discourage and criticize are only miserable with themselves for their own lack of follow through and goals!

  3. I love this rant! Everything you said is so true, and I have definitely ranted bout this before too!

  4. hey, if people want to make a change, who are we to piss on their parade?!
