Nothing like a new year on the calendar to motivate resolutions. The ones our gut has been pulling us towards, but we’ve been hesitant to make work. Of course, it’s always a good time to start living the life we deserve. Sometimes with a clear cut motivator, a moment in time can push those dreams into reality.
Why can’t we make resolutions weekly? Daily? As they come? Why must we wait until a new year to start demanding positive change from ourselves? My New Year’s resolution is to take the new year out of the equation. To make more resolutions for myself. Realistic goals I can achieve and the space to create as many as I find productive.
Confidence and pride are strengthened as new potential is reached. Set goals act like fire, motivating movement. New understanding, ideas, inspiration. Newfound desire, replenished faith in my own abilities. In some cases, the act of making goals can be just as beneficial as the accomplishments. Keep those internal wheels greased up and spinning.
I try to keep my mind active with hope, while clear from expectations. It is not what happens to me that determines my success, but my perception of success that keeps me feeling worthy. Adjusted goals aren’t abandoned goals. I choose to regard them as lessons rather than failures. The more I consider, the more I learn. Updated evaluations of what is important to me. Expanded consciousness of what happiness truly means.
So instead of annual, traditional goals to set, I aim to maintain resolutions daily. Carrying on a chain of positive movement as my journey to better living remains constant. The goal is always feel-good living. The ability to create meaning from hardships and direction from self-development. A life of purpose is always my #1 goal and there will always be new ways to satisfy.
