The end of every year entails writing down everything you engaged in for the year, noting your wins and losses, and how you are ready to make resolutions for the new year.
What if you find a seer that tells you that the new year is also full of trials and errors and that you might not even accomplish 10% of all that you wrote in your diary as resolutions for the new year? Do you think it will make you stop dreaming and wishing? It probably wouldn’t.
There is a very high certainty that about 95% of the people that died in the previous year put down resolutions for the new year too, but they were never able to accomplish any of them. No thanks to “Mr Mortality” for that.
This article was not written for you to give up on your dreams or to just accept that you are a failure. No one is born a failure; they just haven’t understood their sole purpose for being alive.
Hence, this article was put together to make you understand that you don’t have to beat yourself up. Celebrate your small wins because, at the end of the day, self-love beats it all.
It is not only financial resolutions you should be putting together for the new year; how about that toxic friend or partner in your life? Won’t you make resolutions to kick them out of your life or to make sure they don’t keep taking advantage of you?
What about that bad habit you’ve been meaning to kick but it just keeps re-appearing? Are you going to include it in your new year’s resolutions? Or do you think it will be easy to let go just like that? No negative habits have ever been that easy to let go of. You have to be dedicated and determined to let them go, for real this time.
Is it written on your plans that you will take your mental health more seriously in the new year and let go of anything or anyone that breeds negativity or toxicity? Or are you still thinking that these issues are not worthy of being resolved in the new year?
Don’t limit your new year’s resolutions to learning new skills or becoming more serious about the ones you already have. Let your new year resolutions include more personal goals, emotional goals, and mindset positivity goals.
Include everything in those bullet points for new year’s resolutions. If you would love to have more carbs in your diet, or less, include them. If you would love to quit your job and focus on bettering your skills, put them in there.
Don’t forget that you can’t just have your goals put together somewhere in your mind, you have to write them down and keep looking at them every day. This gives you more reasons to want to accomplish these things and also to not forget them.
Don’t be too hard on yourself. The new year will come and go, whether you accomplish these things or not.
The endpoint of everything is that you still have life. Without life, there can’t be any atom of hope.
