What are my New Year’s resolutions?

January 1, 2018

What are my New Year’s resolutions? Each time when 1st of January rolls around I get an irresistible feeling of a whole new beginning. The “freshness” which comes with that feeling is precious and I’m always excitedly looking forward to what a New Year will bring. 

I’m a wild spirit and rules or restrictions don’t really work with me but I do love the idea of writing down some sort of “roadmap” or a wish list for the year ahead. Some might call these wishes – resolutions but whatever you decide to call them, if you’re making any, do make sure that they’re true to YOU and that if you make them and decide to follow through with them, they’ll better your life instead of put a strain on it and make you feel like a looser a month from setting them up and not being able to fulfil them.

We are all humans and no matter how great intentions we might have or be good at self – control, sooner or later, whatever doesn’t suit our personality or aligns with the daily lives that we’re leading will fall apart and we won’t see our possible New Year’s resolutions come true/ succeed.

First advice on setting any goals for the New Year ahead would be to set the goals and wishes which YOU want to follow and see coming true instead of tailoring yours after your friend, sibling, favourite blogger’s resolutions which won’t be attainable and which won’t interest you to “stick to”.

Another piece of advice would be not to set way too high and unrealistic goals which are already by default set to fail such as: Win lottery, Loose XY kilos in 3 days, no sugar for a year, etc. Those aren’t realistic goals and they’re waste of time.

Last piece of advice would be to change the words from I HAVE TO follow my New Year’s resolutions into I WILL TRY my best to follow my New Year’s resolutions. Life is too short to sweat over every little thing, esp. over New Year’s resolutions and you possibly not following through with them or changing the resolutions after couple of months. That’s just fine! Life should have some sort of guidelines but life isn’t supposed to be lived by the rules which you hold onto as if it would be matter of life or death.

Let loose, live your life for yourself, not for what your neighbour, FaceBook feed or Instagram followers expect to see. You will always inspire many more people and for a longer amount of time if you’re relatable and just being honest.

So in all of my honesty, this is my roadmap for 2018:

I’ll say more YES to:

loving myself, smiling more often, dance like nobody is watching, accept genuine compliments from others, more travelling, eating better and healthier, being more present in the moment, more offline time, spending more quality time with the people whom I love the most, facing my fears and doing more of what makes my spirit excited no matter how crazy or scary something might sound or look like, taking onto new adventures, schedule my days better in order to have more time to be productive as well as more time for resting.

I’ll say more NO to: doing things which I don’t want to but usually say yes to so I wouldn’t disappoint others, feeling down or beat myself up over every little thing which didn’t go right or as planned, being a perfectionist every single moment of every single day, going places or meeting people just because of FOMO, eating foods that physically don’t make me feel good, no matter how big the cravings might be, buying new stuff unless I really, really need them or can’t stop thinking about them, emotional vampires who suck the life out of me and never bring anything good or positive along with them…

How about you? What are your wishes or resolutions for the New Year 2018?
