New years resolution are filled with good intentions under the exciting prospect of a fresh start. A slate wiped cleaned. A return to the drawing board. I have to admit, I’m not much of a resolutions fan. After many years of well-intended, yet unfulfilled resolutions, I’ve come to the conclusion that you should always try your best to do today, what you can do tomorrow. Intentions can be deceptive in the fact that they are “good”. However, if you haven’t exercised a day in your life, it’s fair to assume getting that weekly gym membership may be a fantastical dream that ends with wasted finances. I believe the reason why so many resolutions go unmet is because a change in lifestyle first requires a change in mindset. Resolutions should be centered around a mindset change. If your goal is to lose weight this year. Start small. Examine your eating habits and daily routine and make small consistent changes here and there. Baby stepping your way to fulfilling your resolutions…at least one of ‘em anyway. :)
I truly believe life is an evolving process and one should never stop growing spiritually and emotionally…no matter what age reflects your life experience. Resolutions should be a daily thing. Something as simple as a commitment to positive thinking and finding the good in as many situations as possible is a baby step to a lifestyle change. Periodic perusals of who you are, what you are, and who you’d like to be is a boon towards that good change you desire. It requires honest self-examination and courageous commitment.
What changes are you preparing for this year?
