AND SO THE ADVENTURE BEGINS…
I am always very optimistic at the beginning of a new year. I feel like everything changes, a fresh start. It is quite a bit magical. In my last post I talked all about new year resolutions and the deep meaning of it. I’m all in for making changing and trying to be a better version of yourself. In this sense I want you to get excited for the first weeks of the new year and to take a moment to think about what you want out of this year. You don’t need to write it down or share it with anyone, just take a couple of minutes out of your day to focus on exactly what you want.
Is it to spend more quality time with people? Gain qualifications? Save up? Travel somewhere? Add to your family? Whatever it is, think about it, visualize and commit to yourself that you are going to work towards it. If you want it hard enough, you’ll find a way to make it happen.
I was thinking about my “new year resolutions” or let me say it like this, I’m more focusing on larger goals for how I want to live my life. I’m not setting unrealistic objectives actually the contrary for me I want to retain my expectations. With my full time job, a boyfriend to come home to, friends & family, my blog and many other things like laundry, cooking, cleaning and fitness I know the feeling and stress that comes with a day which feels like having no stopping point. But I want to promise myself that it is okay if you don’t get that load of laundry done or you didn’t clean up the kitchen. I’m just a human being and this year is going to be special one and I want to go into it without expecting too much of myself.
This year I want to be about being present and not bracing for what’s to come. I’m someone who craves control and when it’s not a viable option, I’ll often go into a crazy, anticipatory mindset hoping that it will somehow prepare me for what’s ahead. Not only is that a waste of time and energy, but more often than not, what I think is going to happen rarely pans out that way. So here’s to enjoying the process and not simply focusing on the end result.
These two are my main goals to work on this year next to the usually ones of working out more, spending more quality time with my family and friends and try to enjoy life even more.
I’m having a really good feeling about 2015. Are you?
