Happy New Year! Now's time to be grateful for the good, take what we can from our "not-so-greats," and move into the new year with grateful hearts, confidence and the never-ending will to keep growing. To me, that's what makes each new year beautiful.
But especially now, it's all too often that we overlook all that we did do and succumb to the pressures of making resolutions. There’s always this certain pressure that tells us to change something about ourselves, and often about how we look. Change can be good, but we must do so out of our own genuinity and willingness, not just because it's January 1st.
Losing X-amount of pounds in X-amount of months, gaining X-amount of pounds, going to the gym X-amount of times per week. See where I'm going?
If you have a goal that you’ve genuinely been wanting to achieve for your health and yourself, then want it first and go out there and DO it. But if you’re feeling obligated to fulfill some type of quantity within the next year because everyone else is doing it or in order to attain a certain look, then stop right there.
Succumbing to the pressures around us of changing something each year and doing so solely out of pressure and vanity, often leads to an unhealthy game numbers and obsessions over looks.
On my blog, I'm always emphasizing ways of how we can look and feel our best selves so that we can live our best lives. Let's bring that into 2018 and focus not on the numbers, but rather the happiness we can feel by taking the best care of ourselves, being kinder to ourselves, and allowing ourselves to do more of the things we love all while remaining exactly who we are. Our genuine selves.
Let's make it a promise to do what makes us feel like our best selves. Like walking a bit kinder each day. Slowing down. Helping others, forgiving others. Listening. Creating. Sharing. All that you love, DO. If that's not something to celebrate, then I don't know what is 💋 -
