Hello everyone! 2018 is officially upon us, and I was lucky enough to spend the first moments with my beloved friends and family. Reading through Twitter posts, Instagram stories and the like made me realize that a lot of people need a fresh start in the New Year. Whether it be a past heartbreak, family situation, or even personal conflicts, the act of “rewinding and refreshing” the clock can be therapeutic and a way to leave the past behind them, and start anew.
Now I know the term “resolutions” has gotten a bad rep over the years, because let’s face it, few people ever return back to the gym after the first or second go. Consequently, I choose the word “goal,” because unlike resolutions, you are able to create a deeper plan to coincide with a much larger endpoint. The reason I call them my goals rather than resolutions is to basically strengthen my mindset about completing them. Too many people give up on resolutions because they have the mindset of if I fail I give up. With goals, it is easier to take my failure as a lesson, a piece of advice to take with my on my journey that will ultimately better myself in the end.
With that little explanation, I now present my (hopefully) realistic New Years Goals:
I wish everyone’s goals are made a reality, and that everyone’s 2018 is a time of growth and finding what true happiness is. Cheers to the new year!
