Sitting here reflecting on why I have such a hard time with the concept (and even the word / phrase) of New Year’s Resolutions.
For ME, resolutions feel like,…”Well,…this year I failed at XXX / I need to XXX, so next year I resolve to XXX”. It just always makes me feel like a loser, and there is only 1 resolution I have ever kept! I salute YOU if resolutions work for you! You are a better person than me! Definitely.
So, here’s what I’m doing instead: PLANNING. “I’m planning to XXX”. For me, that is all about intentions and positivity. I like it. That is do-able for me. I’ve got PLANS! Yep, some BIG PLANS, and some LITTLE PLANS. I’m going to look at what I want to do and go for it!
I’m also going to have a word of the year. My word is going to be CONFIDENT / CONFIDENCE.
I’m tired of worrying if my pumpkin soup will be good enough. Tired of worrying if a new painting will look good in our house. Tired of doubting. I need to just trust myself and have CONFIDENCE. Again,…positivity.
I’m ringing in 2016 with positive, happy thoughts of what I can accomplish and experience in the New Year!
Do you have a Word of the Year?
