Looking through social media this time of year, all you see is throwback photos of this past year, future goals, new commitments, new year’s resolutions… This always makes you stop and think. It makes you think about your year, what has been done, what can be done, how can it be done. It also makes me think about my relationships with those around me, how they changed over the past year, my emotions, how am I feeling about things and current circumstances, also, how can I change the things which I don’t like.
I don’t really agree with new year’s resolutions. BUT I do believe in looking back and reflecting, and changing those things which you might not be that happy about. My aim for this year is to stop and reflect more. I am trying to start a bulletin journal to also help me in this (will let you know how this goes!). I also want to work on my little daily habits which might be considered small but which will have a big impact over time.
Big commitments scare me tbh. and I know that if I just do new year’s resolutions I will not reach my goals. Come February I will be frustrated because I did start the new year keeping to my resolutions but after two weeks, I will not see any results or any movement towards my BIG goals and I just stop even trying. I do agree with setting out big goals for 2019. BUT I also believe that to be successful in this regard, I need to set out smaller goals, for each month and for each week. This is what I am trying out this new year! Maybe I’ll see my goals less HUGE and more manageable.
I’m including a picture of a tree. I believe that everything good takes time, growing takes time. Let’s see what the new year will bring!
Happy new year!
Enjoy life, stay safe!
Lots of love
