How can I stick to my new year resolutions this year?
I love the beginning of a new year! Although it is really just another day, there’s something inspiring about reflecting on and saying goodbye to the last year and preparing for what a new year has in store. Many people start the new year making resolutions. Resolutions are firm decisions to do or not to do something. The problem with that, for human beings, is we don’t like being told what to do, so we immediately set ourselves up for a vicious cycle of failure and disappointment.
So this year, don’t resolve. Instead, make aspirations—a hope or ambition of achieving something. Make this year about possibility and create a theme for yourself that resonates with what you would like to accomplish in 2018. And keep in mind, you have a whole 365 days to make it happen! Too often, we set out on January 2 with the best intentions and then find ourselves back to the same ole, same ole by January 31st. Encourage yourself. Challenge yourself. What do you want to contribute this year? Open yourself up to all the possibility a new year holds!
My theme this year is “Trust You.” Now, all I aspire to gets decided around what I am committed to, which is to be true to myself and getting quiet enough to listen and trust my intuition! It really does know best every time.
Peace and Love, Kim xo
