I am not a fan of the New Years Resolution. For me it has a negative association with not being serious or realistic. January 1st feels like a resetting and rebirth for many people. It is a chance to wrong your rights from the year before and start anew. Many people set a “resolution” and go hard the first couple of days or first couple of weeks and then go right back to the old behavior.
I’m about looking at the big picture and being honest with yourself. I am about setting some goals for the year.
I dont view the new year as new. I view each Jan 1st as a continuation of my journey. I don’t discount or try to erase what I did or did not do the year before. I look at it and learn from it. I will use parts of it to help me do better in the new year.
I set goals and give myself the whole year to accomplish them. I give myself permission to set my own pacing and if it takes ALL year , that is fine. Also I may not start Jan 2nd, I may start Feb 1st…and that’s okay.
The MAIN goal for me is always to affect change and create habits that will realistically improve my life. AS I say, small steps can lead to large rewards. I want things to STICK! And I give my permission to be human. There is no such thing as perfection!
I believe in all of you!!!
