this little girl tells us what she really thinks: the real change doesn’t happen in one big moment but in our everyday decisions. Even if we fail one or two or thirty times we get 1000 more chances to make little moments count.
Here is what she says:
I have a problem with New Years resolutions, not because they often fail or because they are too difficult and not because I am bad at them either. I mean, I have only been alive for four New Years.
No, I have a problem with resolutions because people think that that’s it, it’s the one time to change. Now don’t get me wrong we definitely all need change. I have no idea how to ride a bicycle and my little brother has no idea what a toilet is for and some of you.Yeah, you should probably get out of the house more but one big decision probably is not going to do it. Sorry!
So now what? Flush your resolutions down the toilet? The one my little brother can’t use? Of course not! Keep your resolutions but go easy on yourself. Will you change? Maybe. But it probably won’t happen in one big moment. It will happen in thousands of little moments every time you choose to forgive or slow down or be grateful or stay calm. Each little moment that you choose what’s right instead of what’s easy. Faith instead of doubt, Love instead of hate – that’s where the change happens!
