Every year, instead of reading inspiring journals and comments about the optimistic changes people are excited to begin in January, I am instead bombarded with journals stating that people will not be making new years resolutions or complaining that they hadn't maintained theirs from last years and that it is a waste of time.
As I had previously mentioned, I actually set my "resolutions" on my birthday, because that's the day I count my age so I personally feel that it is a better milestone of my goals and accomplishments. Whenever you chose to set your dreams, please don't give up on them!
The most depressing feeling to me is to age a year without feeling accomplished for what I had done in that year of my life. I am depressed to read people dreading turning 25, 20, even 18. How is it possible that people met such a landmark with dread and sadness instead of excitement and enthusiasm? we are all capable of doing so much and being everything that we want to be! It's sort of like you're spending your life thinking about what you should be doing or what you wished you had done instead of doing what you want to be doing in the first place! While it's frusterating not to achieve a goal, please don't give up on what you want out of life!
I would recommend everyone to just stop and think for a minute about a tangable, realistic goal for this year and to reconsider attempting to achieve it. Sometimes life can be overwhelming and there is always too much to do and too little time. Sometimes sacrifices must be made, but we can't lose sight of personal growth and our own dreams and aspirations. Many of us have so much going on in our lives and so many people that we need to support and help that we forget to actually take care of and support ourselves!
I would love for you to share with me both the things you would hope to accomplish in the upcoming year and all of the wonderful things you were able to do in the past year. If you were unable to meet your goal, instead of tossing it aside why not take a cold hard look at why you weren't able to accomplish it.
As for me, my goal was to become more healthy; I worked very hard and feel a lot better about myself and for that I feel blessed and greatful. This year, I am graduating so I will be focusing on finally finishing my last year of school, finding a job, and finding my first apartment! As with every year, my one resolution which is constantly on going is to try new things all of the time and to meet new people and make new friends. This is a goal which I hope to maintain my entire life!
Oh, and if I have any spare time I would love to learn how to play the guitar, how cool would that be? I should also probably draw more often haha!R E S O U R C E S
