New year, new me?

Yes, it’s that time of the year again when we all pretend this year is going to be THE YEAR. Let’s get over it right away. It’s also when all our resolutions show up and we decide that, from january the 1st, we’re all going to be a totally different person – as if we’re all Cinderellas and, a second after midnight, we’d be the person we wish we’d be, the person we’ve been dreaming of for a while now. We pretend and convince ourselves that from that day on, we’re a completely new person, with not so realistic changes in our lives or lifestyle. Did you know it takes 21 days to build a new habit? Are we really going to get used to a hundred new habits right on the first day of the year? Like it’s a new beginning? I think not. Life is constant changes, but slow ones, not miracle ones. I obviously also have resolutions that I want to accomplish, but I refuse to pretend I’m going to be and do amazing this year. I can only promise I’ll the best and do the best. There are a few things that I want to keep in mind. Not because it’s a new year – because every day is also a new day and you can always have your fresh start every day - but because from time to time we have to think and rethink if we’re going the right direction. Of course, a new year is a wakeup call for what we’ve all been doing with our lives and everyone realises another year has gone by. But the truth is, we’re here every day and we’re here every day to make and take the best out of this world. So, let’s go for it, because today is actually the day. Apologies, I honestly didn’t want nor expect the first post of the year to turn out this big but… congrats if you’ve made it till de end! Anyways, new year, not-so-new me.


Sim, é outra vez aquela altura do ano em que todos se lembram que, este ano, vai ser O ANO. Vamos esquecer isso. É também quando nos lembramos de todas as resoluções e mais algumas para o novo ano e decidimos que, a partir do dia 1 de janeiro, vamos todos ser pessoas completamente diferentes – como se de uma Cinderela se trata-se e, às doze badaladas, nos transformássemos na pessoa que desejamos ser, na pessoa que já há algum tempo sonhamos ser. Fingimos que é mesmo assim e tentamo-nos convencer que, daquele dia para a frente, somos um novo eu, muito melhores do que fomos até ali, com resoluções de ano novo e objectivos muito pouco realistas e que dificilmente se enquadram nas nossas vidas ou no nosso estilo de vida. Sabiam que são necessários 21 dias para criar um hábito? Vamos mesmo conseguir impregnar com sucesso milhentos hábitos novos só no primeiro dia do ano? Como se fosse um novo começo? Não me parece. A vida é feita de mudanças constantes, mas lentas, não mudanças milagrosas. Obviamente que tenho também resoluções que quero pôr em prática, mas recuso-me a fingir que vou ser o melhor eu de sempre este ano. Certamente vou fazer o meu melhor e dar o meu melhor. Há certas coisas que quero ter em mente, mas não por ser um novo ano – porque todos os dias também são novos dias e um novo dia é um novo fresh start – mas porque, de tempos em tempos, é importante pensar e repensar se vamos na direcção certa. Claro, um novo ano é sempre uma chamada de atenção para o que andamos a fazer com a vida e toda a gente se apercebe que mais um ano passou. Mas a verdade é que, estamos cá todos os dias e estamos cá todos os dias para fazer e levar o melhor deste mundo. Portanto, vamos fazer por isso, porque hoje é o dia. Sinceramente não esperava nem queria um post tão grande como o primeiro do ano mas… parabéns se chegaste até aqui! Em todo o caso… ano novo, não-tão-novo eu.
