Every year we set ourselves resolutions, usually the same ones we made the previous year that unsurprisingly we were did not achieve for one reason or another.
Trust me, there is always an excuse as to why something was not done; why we had to give up on something or why we just plainly did not want to do something. It is customary to make resolutions with the New Year and then two weeks later, forfeit it. It was only a promise to yourself, if you can no longer keep it, who does it hurt?? Well the answer is you! You do not want to become accustomed to failed promises.
Every year I find myself with the group of people who give up on their resolution by the end of the first month. This is why I am no longer making resolutions. This year I have set my self three realistic targets that I hope to achieve by the end of the year.
- Is in relation to my health. I have come to realise that is not just about looking healthy but feeling healthy as well. And this encompasses many things that you would not usually associate with including emotional, and mental stability.
- Finances. I have been doing really well with this for a very long time. I always achieve my financial goals, but I feel like I can push further, I can save more if I stop spending on unnecessary things; do not get me wrong I do intend to enjoy my life as well.
- Relationships. I am a highly opinionated individual, when I am right and I know I am right, I do not budge. I really enjoy my own company, and that makes me push people away without intending to because they tend to annoy me. I want to work on my friendships; I want to retain the good people in my life.
These are the things which I know for definite I can achieve by the end of the year 2013. If I end up a size 8 in the process, that will be highly appreciated bonus. One of my unwritten target is post more blog...I have not written this down because I do not know how busy I will be this year, but fingers cross lets hope for the best.
I hope you had a lovely Christmas and have a Happy New Year.
