New Year’s Resolutions…

hello everyone 😉

There’s so much to be grateful for this past year. I am blessed with a family that loves each other unconditionally.

I am thankful for my life, my siblings, my family, friends, church, ballet, this blog, and the list goes on and on and on.

Granted, I do not have a perfect life… nobody does, but to me, the flaws makes up the things that I love.

Thank you to my readers. Although I was absent for a while, I still appreciate you all for subscribing and following my blog.

With basically the first pages of our new chapter of life almost over, i’ve had some time to think about my New Year’s Resolutions… and how to keep them (even harder)

——————–

  1. Have Patience
    1. Not just to people not related to me, but especially to my siblings
  2. Be Kind to Everyone
    1. Unconditionally, no matter who they are, or what they’ve done to me
  3. Be Fearless
    1. I do not want to be afraid, no matter if it’s past, present, or future. I want to be brave with my life, no matter what happens.
  4. Think Before I Speak
    1. I want to always be cautious of my words. Words can hurt, no matter if you mean it or not. I want to never speak from a place of hate, jealousy, anger or even insecurity… sometimes it’s best to be quiet.
  5. Forget What’s Gone
    1. I want to continually appreciate what still remains, and look forward to what’s coming next.
  6. Eat less chocolate…
    1. and cookies
    2. and less trail mix (come on… it’s basically chocolate pieces with obstacles that happen to be nuts)
    3. So basically I mean be healthier 😉
  7. Keep up with blogging
    1. I really do mean it!!!
  8. Learn real calligraphy
    1. When I mean real, i’m basically saying learn real technique. Right now, i’m faking it by using good pens and thickening my down strokes… more on that coming soon!!

The hardest part about New Year’s Resolutions, is that most likely they’re going to be forgotten by March. I’m positive that we all can overcome this incredible phenomenon, by wholeheartedly believing that this is something that can improve us and make us better. However, by keeping your resolutions realistic, there’s a better chance of you actually doing it.

For example, did you notice that I said eat less chocolate? I also said be healthier… I never said STOP eating chocolate… that’s impossible. However, I didn’t say be kind to certain people… Why?

Well, there’s a difference between which wording you know will improve you, and what wording will just make you give up on your resolutions. Sometimes setting the bar high will motivate you, but it could also force you to completely leave your resolution behind. You know yourself best, so frame your resolution in a way that you’ll be excited to put it to use.

I highly recommend setting goals, and using visuals, such as a motivation board. There’s tons of ideas on the Internet, especially on media such as Pinterest. They do say out of sight, out of mind, so take that as your motivator, and use your own creativity to keep those resolutions in constant visual.

Now that I think of it, if you would want to see a list of ideas on motivation boards, let me know in the comments….

Thanks for reading this post 🙂

How are your resolutions doing? How do you keep them? Any ideas for me on how I could be reminded of mine?

Again, thanks so much for your support.

Be sure to like, share, and go out into the world and be fearless 🙂

love,

Madi
