“Every year you make a resolution to change yourself. This year, make a resolution to be yourself”

“Every year you make a resolution to change yourself. This year, make a resolution to be yourself” is a new year’s saying that has been printed on many images.
           
“Every year people make resolutions… The majority of people revert back to how they were before and feel like failures. This year I challenge you to a new resolution: I challenge you to just be yourself. Aisha Elderwyn, musician, narrator, voice actor” was printed in Women’s Health on January/February 2007. “‘Every new year, people make resolutions to change aspects of themselves they believe are negative. A majority of people revert back to how they were before and feel like failures. This year I challenge you to make a resolution of a different kind. I challenge you to just be yourself.’ AISHA ELDERWYN” was printed in the Expositor (Brantford, ON) on December 26, 2008.
     
“Every new year people make resolutions to change…. This year I challenge you to a new resolution. I challenge you to just be yourself” was posted on Twitter by K. O’Donnell Grone on December 31, 2009. “Every year you make a resolution to Change yourself… this year make a resolution to BE yourself!” was posted on Twitter by sruthi (and others) on December 29, 2010. The saying appears to be a paraphrase of Aisha Elderwyn.
