Hello 20159:27 AM
Here we are, the board has been wiped clean, the last of the wine drank, and the resolutions are implemented. For those that do them that is. Because, I don't.
Unless vowing to continue to be awesome counts as one. And I think it totally does qualify to be a resolution. And perhaps the only one that truly matters. Repeat after me :
I am awesome, and I vow to keep on being awsome.
How does that sound? Better yet, how does that feel? Much better than "I resolve to eat healthy and go to the gym everyday" right?
We can all use a little positivity, and there will alway be enough people trying to sabotage our self esteem without doing that ourselves.
What I do every year however, is count my blessings, moments of triumph, achievments and happy moments. I litterally sit down and reflect on them in the last few hours of the year. And I only count the good, the bad goes to the mental trash, it,s not worth remembering, or holding to it. Unless I learned something from it that positively impacted my life, in which case it stops being a negative.
This year, I wrote all of it in my Gratitude Diary. It filled close to five pages in it. It include saving a cat's life, expanding my social circles, changing the name of my blog, getting business cards and learning new skills. among a great other many things.
I have absolutely no regrets about last year, but then I rarely do regrets to begin with. Regrets only hold one back, I can't be bothered with that.
I am wishing you all a Happy New Year...make that an Awesome New Year, because this is what it will be if you want it to be.
