"I have a problem with New Year's resolutions. Not because they often fail or because they're too difficult, and not because I'm bad at them either. I mean, I've only been alive for four New Years!"
That's how one wise 4-year-old girl starts off a video about New Year's resolutions and making real changes in your life. Her sweet pep talk addresses how overwhelmed people can feel when they're trying to stick to their resolutions and gives them a better strategy for meeting their goals.
So, what exactly is this girl's problem with New Year's resolution?
"I have a problem with New Year's resolutions because people think that's it. It's for one time to change. Now don't get me wrong, we all definitely need change," she says. "But one big decision probably isn't going to do it."
Instead of trying to make one big decision, this toddler recommends focusing on all the small decisions in your daily life.
"Keep your resolutions, but go easy on yourself. Will you change? Maybe. But it probably won't happen in one big moment. It'll happen in thousands of little moments," she says. "Even if you fail one or two or 30 times, it's OK! You've got thousands of more little moments ahead of you."
