Good morning! As we are one week into 2015 I am curious, did you make any resolutions for the new year? Did you cut out alcohol, sugar, smoking? Did you vow to “finally” get into shape and get your butt to the gym every morning? Or perhaps you are planning on training for a marathon?
How is it going so far? Did you know that 45% of Americans make resolutions and only 8% keep them?
When I was younger I believed that I HAD to make resolutions each year, simply because every was doing it and then I was disappointed and angry with myself if I failed. Then I stopped for while and felt like I was “missing out” on something, what I do not know.
Last year I gave up entirely and decided to just try to live a more mindful and meaningful life which I thought I was doing until God and the universe had other plans. Instead I spent the year just trying to survive.
What I have come to realize is this, life is going to happen wether we have made resolutions, plans, dreams, or schedules.
Get out there and live the life you want, not the one others choose for you, if you fall down, dust yourself off and try again!
Love yourself first and most, otherwise you cannot really love others.
Learn anything and everything, the world is your oyster.
Don’t settle for a job that doesn’t excite you, or a life that doesn’t fulfill you.
Your body, soul and mind are the MOST valuable things you have, take care of them. Eat better, get some exercise, and believe in something.
Life is short, enjoy!
