Happy New Year everyone!!!
The new year is always a very exciting time as everyone prepare’s to better themselves one way or another, set new goals, and view it as a fresh start.
My resolution for the last few years has always been simple: “be happy”. This past year, as I have worked on growing spiritually and mentally, I started to realize that I don’t ever need to wait for a new year to set goals for myself, or better myself, instead I feel much more fulfilled by constantly setting goals for myself, and having compassion for myself when I meet those goals, and more importantly when I don’t (and giving myself kudos for trying :]). Don’t get me wrong, as a perfectionist (still workin’ on that!) this can be extremely difficult, but sometimes you just need to practice compassion for yourself, and eventually it’ll become a natural reaction and a core belief. I also believe that when you encounter challenges, sometimes you just need a little faith and sometimes you gotta fake it til you make it (check out the TED talk in this link, it is absolutely one of my faves)
So for this new year, I invite you to set “resolutions” for yourself throughout the entire year – it’ll be fun, I promise! And also, most importantly, to enjoy it, whether you succeed or not, you have done your best, and when you least expect it you will have accomplished amazing things :]
My most recent resolution has been to “own my weirdness” :]. I love that statement. It’s basically about owning your individuality, but said in a more fun way :P. Everyone is unique, weirdness is a perception, so own it 😉
Let’s have an amazing 2014 folks! And be grateful for every day the sun rises :]
