First of all I would like to wish you all A Happy New Year filled with joy, happiness and love. May we all be better people, do better, help others and be action driven. Keep a good figure, stay healthy, love, forgive, smile more, never misjudge and may we all succeed, find our talents and goals, and with confidence fight for what we want to achieve!
Making New Year resolutions became a rather ‘trendy’ common practice. Lists, promises made to ourselves and to the ones close to us, deadlines for whatever activities or plans we need to fulfill… Celebrities and common people all make them. Why? I guess because the New Year stands for a brand new beginning, a new blank page, void of mistakes and regrets, that only awaits for us to fill it with our success, dreams and passions. It’s a symbol and a chance to do and to be better at life!
Plan or Go With The Flow? Whichever best suits you. Some people are good with lists and some are better just good spotting and grasping chances along the way. I belong to the 1st category, therefore I have made yet another list this year. Did they work last year? Hardly, but I feel that I have grown so much in the past years of my life, that I have learned to know what is best for me. I know I have to be my best friend and work for my best interest. That is why the things that are now on my list are fewer but extremely important for me, and achieving them will only make me grow as a person and feel good in my skin on all levels.
First I have to pay more attention to my health and I have decided to exercise and keep eating healthy (something I have already started a couple of months ago). Then I want to focus more on writing and building my dream career on this passion. And last but not least, I want to be more action driven.
The truth is we should make resolutions much more often than for New Year and we shouldn’t wait for an excuse to make up a list, but we should always keep in our mind and soul our dreams awaken, our plans vivid, our passions and talents alive and act. Act independent of any major event around us. We are all masters of our lives and we should all learn how to make things happen for us.
But if nothing comes into mind for you this New Year just promise yourself that in 2011 you will be a better person, you will do better, help those in need, learn something new and stay true to the real person that you are.
