Remember those resolutions you made twelve months ago? How are they going? You know, we only have a few more weeks until we ring in the new year, and I would be fairly confident to say that 95% of people did NOT complete or keep all of their new years resolutions.
And that's okay.
Neither did I.
Last year, I wrote a blog post called 2014 Wrap Up, where I highlighted twenty things I wanted to accomplish in the year 2014. Out of the 20 things, I did 15 of them. Not bad. Not great.
And that's okay.
So, why all the hype every year about making these infamous resolutions? We feel pressure to PUT pressure on ourselves to lose that weight or get that job or stop biting our nails or WHATEVER because "resolutions are what we're supposed to do." And maybe a month later, we stop going to the gym or stop applying for the job and start biting our nails again.
And that's okay. That's human.
My point is that resolutions, though not always fulfilled, are still GOOD. We still change ourselves for the better, if only for a slight point in time. We start thinking of the potential we can have with the year to come and we know what we want to do with it. Even if we only accomplish one out of twenty things on our "list", at least we accomplished that ONE thing. We did at least ONE thing this year better than last year.
So think about what those resolutions that might have been forgotten. You still have a few weeks, so can you make it? And when January 1st rolls around, make more resolutions even though you might not accomplish them all because you will be setting the bar high, and I bet that if you work hard enough, you can do at least a FEW pretty awesome things in 2015.
