Have you made yet another New Year’s resolution? But this time it’s going to be different, you’ll get to your goal time! I make one every year that I always am able to keep, I resolve not to resolve! Now, I’m not down on the ideas of hopes, goals and determination. But rather am against the idea of making promises to myself that human nature dictates I’m eventually going to break. I believe there is nothing more important than the compacts you make with yourself.
So how would you avoid breaking promises to yourself? Simply put, you have to stop making black and white promises. You could promise to diet until you lose 25 pounds OR set a more flexible goal like striving to always do better with healthy eating. Maybe I have the dessert if I also eat more veggies. Small achievable steps! But while you’re at it, make a goal to treat yourself more kindly. See how I stated that. Not always be kind to yourself, but treat yourself more kindly. Eat better more often, increase your exercise amounts, and just keep up the good fight!
I hope you join me in my resolve not resolve and instead goal set to do better! See you in the trenches of self-growth!
