Happy New Year Everyone!!!! Hope you had a wonderful celebration. It doesn’t matter how you got into the year; whether you snoozed into, prayed into, played into or partied into the New year; what matters is ‘We’re Here! We Made It!…Now What Are You Going to Do About It? I imagine it almost feels like once the clock strikes 12:00 am, an imaginary timer starts ticking, everyone runs to an imaginary line and then its ‘on your mark, get set….Go’! 😀 😀
This year, I decided to get my list of New Year Resolutions done early…which was a lot of fun (not really…lol). I felt like I was about to pop a blood vessel and I wasn’t even halfway through my list yet the pressure was on. My new year resolutions -as wonderful and easily attainable as they may be – don’t exactly last the whole year much less survive a couple of months 😦 and chatting with a few pals over the holidays made me realize one simple principle.
You Need To Commit. It doesn’t matter how bold or how large you print those resolutions; whether you have them taped to your door, bathroom mirror or the ceiling over your bed. If you’re not committed to following through, you are ‘NOT’ going to.
On the other hand, it appears as if the year has been reduced to a bunch of checklists, goals, events and deadlines. Unfortunately, that’s the way a huge number of the populace (myself included) keep themselves on track these days; coupled with the dilemma of having a million things vying for your attention on a daily basis.
Now, there’s really nothing wrong with having goals and resolutions but sometimes we put so much pressure on ourselves that if we aren’t careful, we might loose sight of what’s actually important. Life is too short to be lived to attain goals only – that’s what robots are for- and since we have a loooong 363 more days to go, why not have fun while you’re at it.
A Few Snippets From My New Years Resolution For 2017
- I will take my earphones out more often and experience the sounds around me.
- I am determined to be mindful.
- I will be present.
- I will have fun while I’m at it.. 😀 😀
So while writing up those New Year Resolutions, don’t be afraid to dream big and expect big breaks but also be kind to yourself, find a balance and be realistic. Most importantly, learn to enjoy the moments you have with the people around you. 😀 Until I come your way again, its ciao for now!
