We talked at the beginning of last year about how to make your resolutions last throughout the whole year. How did you do? I’ll be honest, I didn’t do great. I lost track of all the things I wanted to accomplish in 2014 and only got a few done here and there, but I wasn’t consistent.
I want to help you avoid this as we begin 2015. Hopefully, I’ll heed my own advice and be more successful with my own resolutions this year as well.
My big advice this year is to just be reasonable with yourself on your goals. No one benefits from making a list of 10 things they want to change about themselves in a year, you walk away unhappy with who you are and that’s not ok. Focus on 1 to 3 things that will make your life better overall and make a plan of how you will implement small changes into your day-to-day life to accomplish them. Baby steps are still steps moving forward and in the right direction so don’t get upset with yourself that changes isn’t happening overnight.
Lastly, I want to leave you with this: Go easy on yourself. Let’s make 2015 a year of self-acceptance. Change what you will make your life better but at the end of the day, be happy with who you are.
