New Year’s Resolutions

What the new year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year.”

Vera Mclellen

Hey guys!

I have been dealing with the hustle and bustle of the holidays and fighting off a cold. I wanted to write, I just didn’t have the energy. So, I would like to apologize.

On my last post, I talked about my idea of a friendship and what it means to me. If you have not read that post yet, be sure to check it out.

For this post, I wanted to write about my New Year’s resolution as we close in the end of the year. I wanted to talk about the importance of making them.

Pros of New Year’s Resolutions:

  • Gives you motivation to do better.
  • Triggers self reflection.
  • Gives us something to work towards.

This year, I accomplished 2 out of 3 resolutions which something to be proud of considering the year everyone has had. The other resolutions was out of my control, which is a big no when it comes to making resolutions. Lesson learned.

You don’t grow when you’re comfortable.

This Year’s Resolutions

I will not let anything get in the way of me achieving these resolutions.

The secret to getting ahead is getting started.

Volunteer

I want to volunteer more just because I know that I was put on this earth to get back more than I should take. I have like this dream of working at a cancer hospital and just bringing a positive atmosphere to the hospital because I know what people with cancer go through.

Date Myself

My second resolution is based off the fact that a lot of people tend to forget to date themselves. You need to be able to take yourself somewhere and enjoy your own company before inviting someone else into your life. So I want to try something new on my own at least once a month.

Break a Habit

So, let’s face it, we all have a habit, or at least a few that we need to break. Don’t be mistaken, habits are very difficult to break. So I want to spend my entire year next year breaking a terrible habit. This will allow me to see how that habit affects my energy.

Travel to a different country

This is me hoping that the year will be different next year. But I do want to travel to a new country. I am praying that there is a vaccine that can somewhat control this virus, so we are able to travel again.

Be happy with what you have, while working for what you want.

Make New Friends

I am very selective with who I label as my friends. I have a handful. So I would like to make more quality friends. Someone with similarities and some with differences who would get me to try new things.

Grow my Savings

This one is not a hard concept. I want to save, so I can end up doing more in the future.

Read a New Book Every Month

Growth involves educating yourself. Many do not know this. In college I stopped reading for enjoyment because I was being forced to read stuff I did not want to. Now that I am graduated, I want to get back to what I love. Starting with a new book every month.

Start a Dream Journal

I want to start looking more into my dreams to understand myself more. You’d be surprise how much your dreams reflect your life, emotions, and fears.

Meditate Again

I already meditate, but I want to go deeper. You know…growth.

Have Meaningful Conversations

I really do not like boring conversations that scratch the surface. Conversations like: “What is your favorite color” or “Tell me about yourself”. That will turn me off and annoy me.
