The holiday season is complete and now it’s time to really reflect on yourself and how to make yourself better for next year. This year I know I grew up a lot and went through alot of roller coaster rides. Break ups and make ups and a lot of drama with friends, I ended up staying to the side and just spending the holiday season with the people that mean the most to me- my family. I know that sounds corny and what not, but I had one of the funnest holiday seasons ever. Next year I plan to bring even more bad girl swag to everything, and plan to be the best person I can be. I want to read, write, learn, and smile every single day. Yes it might sound corny, but maybe I’m a corny person. There is no reason or no one that is putting me back in these goals (anymore) and I’m glad. Who knows what this specifically means, but I know it will be a fun year.
My resolutions are:
– get back into school… (study!!)
– workout more!!!
– read! read! read!
– turn negativity into positivity
– and save! save! save!
2011 is coming and I’m ready (and cannot wait).
what are your goals/plans for the next year???
*HeyDoYou is for the cute, clever and connected*
- At this time of season, we all go through our resolutions for the new year to come… eat less, play more, love harder, be smarter… all pretty open-ended resolutions! I am the queen of new year’s resolutions, and after so many attempts of successful ones (and a lot of self-help reading lol) I’ve come up with some pretty decent tips to carrying out your list!
- Unsure of where to start? Create a dream board like the one seen here;(http://www.oprah.com/article/spirit/inspiration/odreamboard).
- Make a list ~ its one thing to have the ideas in your head, but when your ideas are put onto paper you’re one step closer to making them into realities.
- Put your list somewhere it will be seen ~ ever heard of the phrase ‘out of sight, out of mind’? Well, when IN sight its a constant reminder.
- Make resolutions direct and closed-ended ~ this way there will be no room for ‘sort-of’ completions, either you did it or you didn’t.
- Create time lines ~ if your give yourself deadlines, you’ll be able to complete and move on to the next task.
- Don’t become discouraged by a rut ~ we all have times when things don’t go as planned, wallow for a moment but then move on… “on to the next!”
Hope your year is better than the last; I wish you health, love and success… without compromise.
