I may be a few days late but I thought I’d write a quick little post about resolutions. Nowadays so many people seem to ‘poo poo’ on the making of New Years resolutions, but I don’t mind them. I mean, yes they can sometimes set us up for failure – like the ones were you say your going to lose 5 kgs by the end of Jan, or your going to quit your job and travel around the world by the year’s end. Resolutions though, can be made everyday and by their nature should be seen as positive ways to brighten and better our lives (remember though that everyone has different ideas of what ‘better’ is, and that’s fine too).
What I thought I’d do here on the blog though is create a yearly list of Non Resolutions, things I’m happy with, changes I’ve made that I’m continuing to embrace, things that make me, me! Sure we should all strive to be better and to embrace change but sometimes the most important thing is to accept and love ourselves for who we are at this very moment and celebrate that person!
Here’s my little Non Resolution list:
- Your sensitive by nature, ‘thin skin’ some say, but that sensitive side, whilst it has its draw backs, also makes you sensitive towards others and empathetic to their needs. Don’t feel the need to ‘toughen’ up too much, having thick skin has its own set of drawbacks.
- Guess what, you exercise enough! You exercise regularly every week and stay committed to that year in and year out – Yay for you! Sure, try out new things but don’t doubt that the amount you do isn’t enough – it is.
- You crave control and order and everything has it’s place, but you’ve been trying lately to be more present, rather than always bracing for what might come next. Keep this up, it’s good for you!
What would be on your Non Resolution list?
