New Year, Old You


Quote of the day: 
when the wind is perfect, the sail just needs to open and the world is full of beauty. Today is such a day. 
-Rumi


A resolution is a decision, an aim, and or dedication to a specific cause. How many resolutions does one have to make with each passing year? And how long can each be sustained? In the new year we start off in a run, only to not finish the race in the end. As a result, the first few weeks are highly productive. Join a gym, yes. Kick a habit, double yes. What then happens? We lose steam. Life can be said to be essentially the sum of all our habits put together.

In the past when I tried to stick to resolutions, it took patience and hard work. I found a better way which involves making weekly or monthly goals instead -making it easier to track and monitor my progress, to develop and grow quickly.

As we acquire new habits and get rid of old ones, putting things in perspective becomes inevitable. In conclusion, waiting for the year to end before making resolutions may not be the best way for growth to happen. Dissect the year into months, weeks and days if you can, and make plans accordingly. In the new year, I hope your dreams and goals all come to pass.

Here's to the new year. 
Here's to great accomplishments. 
Happy 2016!



Peace. Love. Light*

  6. I don't make resolutions. I try to do my best every day and then start fresh again the next day. Less daunting. ;)
    Peace and Love and Happy New Year!

  7. Happy New Year to you! I don't do resolutions- I fail at them to quickly. But usually some "project" for the year finds me. It might be big or might be small, but whatever theme it is is what I need to be doing. Hard to make that realization for a set date.

  11. Goodbye to resolutions which are so easily broken on my part as well. You are right that weekly goals are easier to succeed at...or fail as well. Wishing you a very Happy New Year and thanks for your blog posts.

  14. I still do resolutions but not 1st of the year. May not even be the first month but I do and I make them as short as possible too when I don't follow through, I recycle :-)

    Have a grander year blogger boss.

  18. Self-improvement is a constant. I am working on it all of the time--aware of who I am and how I can better change that for the better. Do I succeed? Not always, but I am always working on it.
