Christmas is done and the New Year is almost upon us. So has anybody made their resolutions list yet?
I’m usually one of those people who makes resolutions and then keeps them for about the first fifteen days of the New Year. It’s usually something like, work out more, eat better, and lose weight. Blah, blah, same old, same old.
But this year, I’m thinking why bother with resolutions of change? Not that the beginning of a new year isn’t a great time to try and create yourself in to a better self. It’s just, I think my life is pretty great the way it is. So instead of thinking of nit-picky, negative things that I only manage to do for two weeks, I’m going to take a different approach to the New Year this go round.
This time, I’m going to make a list of everything that’s good in my life. A list of all the things I enjoy! Things that I’d like to see continue seeing or happening in my life for the next 365 days. It will be a list of positive things. Positive energy attracts more positive energy, right? I’ll put the list up somewhere where I can see it all year.
So, it won’t really be a resolutions list. It will be something to remind me that good things happen all the time and I don’t need drastic changes to obtain some unattainable perfection.
To being happy and a happy New Year.
