Resolutions Made Real
Every year I make a list of resolutions and as soon as I convince myself that I’ve thought about them, they go by the wayside and I do what I want. I think resolutions are a fun tradition and at the same time they are by definition meant to make me feel a failure and weak. Usually by January 10th, I’m not making progress toward unrealistic goals, so I quit all together. Shoved in the back of my mimd until the last week of December. I’m stopping that this year by opting out of resolutions all together for 2012!
I have a better idea! Good Bye 2011, yes I am rather glad to see you go. However, your trials and opportunities have made me stronger and better than I was a year ago. I’m stopping this vicious cycle and going forward. 2012, I’m making small changes, measured daily. Days make my week, weeks make my year. So HA! who needs to write down what I’m going to do this year in one sitting?!?! I’m thinking not!, minor adjustments daily are far more attainable.
Here’s How I plan to do this:
Positive thoughts and habits added with Freedom to “be” and mixed with lowering my stress levels monitored daily should produce a productive, healthy and accomplished year. If I mess up one day, back on board the next. No Guilt!
Try it, we’re not granted a 365 day pass. Any given day could be your last, so measure yourself daily and be the best “you” out there. Simple enough!
