It’s the last week of January 2018 … Remember New Year’s Eve? … Remember those resolutions you made? … How’s that going?
If you are still committed to your resolutions, congratulations !! I recently read an article that said January 17th is “Ditch New Year’s Resolution Day”. If you “ditched” it, that means your resolution didn’t even last for 3 full weeks ☹
It can be very discouraging, that is why I have changed my thinking/opinion on the topic of New Year’s resolutions. I do like to take time to reflect at the end of each year. I try to take stock (so to speak) of my intentions that I set out in the beginning of the year. I try to think rationally, not emotionally (a skill that I am constantly honing it all aspects of my life). I try to keep things in perspective – everything is not always black & white. Then I plan for the future … what things are important to me to achieve?
That’s why I like to make Goals … not resolutions! To me, resolutions can almost seem like wishes. Goals (again to my thinking) are like having a game plan to get were you want to be. I try to break the main goal into “bite-size”, doable tasks. As you know, I ♥ checking things off my to-do list ?
