New year. New me. Yeah as if! What is the difference of the calendar year going to make? Bad habits are not going to be magically resolved as the clock strikes 12. I think that setting resolutions for a new year is kinda just setting oneself up for failure. Let’s be honest, 2018 is not going to change this girls binge doughnut eating habits.
As counter productive as this meaningless tradition seems to be, I think there is some value in it. By taking the time to reflect on the past year and compiling ways to better one’s self, is actually really important! Just the simple thought process of resolutions creates a subconscious reminder. Human life is consistently learning & growing everyday. By thinking of ways to evolve and adapt is apart of the process. Why live a stagnant life right?
The new-year is a wake up call to the rapid passing of time. That another year has gone by and another year is ahead of us. I think that’s what actually worries people the most. But regardless of new years resolutions, this is a time to count blessings and be thankful for life. It moves really fast and being self aware and positive for all of the good things, only betters what is yet to come. I am a firm believer that what one puts into the universe, is exactly what they will receive in return. By being thankful for life & health & blessings & family, outputs a positive energy to only be gained further in the upcoming year. Why yes, there are awful circumstances that life hands to us on silver platter, like, “here you go, enjoy!” However, the energy those are received with is the same energy that it will be resolved with. That is my intentions for this year, to be more self aware of my blessings.
Here’s to 2018!
