Well… 2019 is fast approaching and the infamous “New Year Resolution” is upon us (dun dun dun)!
As I contemplate on my Resolutions, I start to have the overwhelming feeling of defeat. It never fails that I have amazing ideas and the enthusiasm to begin, but about two months in I slowly start to slide back into old habits and stop the new things that I desired to do. BUT not this year!! I am determined that this is going to be a new beginning in so many ways.
For those of us who start out strong and then slowly fizzle out, we need to remember one thing. Take baby steps! My mantra has always been “Go Big or Go Home” and in some aspects it works well, but I’ve had to learn to make realistic goals that are obtainable and not overwhelming. Let’s be honest, we know if we are truly going to follow through with our “Amazing Resolutions” or if we just like the thought of doing it.
My intentions are always truly sincere, but I over extend or put to much pressure on myself to live up to this idea I created in my head. Remember, if you don’t hit your goal for that day, tomorrow is a new beginning. Don’t beat yourself up…keep up the good work and it will be an amazing year!! I hope you come join me in the new year and we can go step by step with the ups and downs and make the most of what life has in store for 2019.
Wishing you and yours a Happy New Year!!
