 My New Year's resolutions aren't all going as well I had hoped. I had a list of things I wanted to work on. It was a list of higher ideals for myself, not specific goals. I have those specific goals too, but I wanted to concentrate more on attitudes and beliefs. I hoped these would make the specific goals take care of themselves.

Since New Year's I have done exactly what I didn't want to do this year. I've focused on those specific goals and pushed aside the attitudes I wanted to adopt. So, I need to remember the goals are to make myself better overall. I can do that by concentrating on the following:

Follow through

I need to be confident I can be happy and fit. I need to follow through on my ideas and forgive myself when I stumble. I have to look at life as an adventure and be courageous in tacking it. I have to be dedicated and persevere in my goals of feeling worthy of my life. I have a good life and I am very lucky in my friends and family. I have to remember that.

So I'm starting today. I am going to ask myself, "Will this make me happy?" If the answer is no, well you know. If I can get into the habit of asking and answering that question honestly, I know I can have a successful year!


  1. I always ask myself will it make me happy. It's a great question to ask. I have found in order to be happy, you have to be a bit selfish. Meaning you have to put yourself first. It's not always easy, but when you are #1 things start to line up. Love you friend! xoxo

  2. Thanks friend! I have a hard time feeling like I deserve to be happy. Hence why I do things that I THINK will make me happy, but in the end do not. I need to find what truly makes me happy and stop trying to find a quick fix. It's not easy, but I think it will be worth it.
