I don’t know about you but I hate setting a New Year’s Resolution! I have always felt that we don’t need the end of the year to reflect on the past and make changes in the future because it can be done everyday. However, I will indulge you with my thoughts on how I want to improve in 2015….
Saying yes to things outside of your comfort zone can be scary and rewarding. I’m going to take more chances in hopes for larger rewards.
Saying no to things you don’t want to do just makes you unhappy. Don’t get me wrong, there are obligations we don’t want to do but they are the right thing. I’m going to say no to things and be ok with my decision.
Taking Care of my Body
Being a healthier person is important for our overall happiness. I’m not perfect and put on a couple of pounds this Holiday Season but as long I am conscious of what I need to feel good that is ok for me.
Slowing Down and Being More Thoughtful
A few times this year I have been faced with many work challenges and changes. In an effort to prove that I can handle it all, I had compromised my responsiblity to be strategic. This year I will be slowing down, thinking clearly about the down stream effects and best solutions.
I am a good cook and rarely do it because it’s easier to just pick up food for one! I am going to make a bigger effort to cook new things at a reasonable price and in a healthy way.
So, in my last post of the year, I encourage you to look back on the last year. Applaud yourself fo your accomplishments, recognize your failures, pick yourself up and move into the new year in a positive way. Who knows, changing ourselves could yield bigger changes around us.
Happy New Year to you!
