Like jumping from one stone to another we have made it to a new year. Classically so, we all try and make resolutions and we must remember to try and make changes to our lives but not try and change ourselves completely because we are who we are and we all contribute- any time you try and change yourself it never works. Here’s to bettering what we already know and have, to improve our mind, body and soul. Resolution means a firm decision to do or not do something, and the quality of being determined or resolute. I have made my decisions:
1. Continue To Love and Appreciate Myself. i have grown drastically in confidence since cutting my hair off, i suddenly see my beauty and want to tackle life with the belief i actually can. I still have a little ways to go though trusting in my ability, thinking i’m pretty and knowing i’m good enough. This in no way means i think I’m above anyone it’s simply knowing MY worth and value on this planet (the hippy is back) as there will be only one of me so lets make my time fantastic.
2. Do not Let negative thoughts In/Think everyone thinks badly of you. I have a TERRIBLE habit of thinking people don’t like me for whatever weird reason and generally thinking badly about myself, it has lessened as my confidence improves but i really need to stop going over and over bad things in my mind (especially before bed, am i right?) first of all i’m going with the age old phrase ‘what people think of me is none of my business’ its very true, if they aren’t worried about you, why are you worried about them- this is not to confuse that ‘cut people out of my life’ thing people do i’m not into that i believe i can get on with everyone, some closer than others. Some i don’t talk to, but if i don’t, i’m not talking about them either. Positive thoughts and less self doubt will always put a smile on your face.
3. Save Money. I always have enough to pay for whatever it is that needs paying for i seldom miss out on big events however i do sometimes miss out on the little ones. I’m 23 this year and i really need to have a couple different savings accounts; one for rainy day problems (like my washing machine that broke down) one that allows me to go out to dinner/pub/club with friends because i love sitting down to coffee with my loved ones and having a chat; i cherish quality time but cant always do it and one for the future future (house anyone?)
3 Eat Better. This is like an every month thing let alone every year! seriously though its important to take care of yourself and i’ll also be doing the 30 day yoga challenge at some point this year. Socrates said it right:“No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.” i want to look back at all the amazing things i did.
4 Read More. fiction/non fiction. the odd encyclopedia and hopefully this Christmas i’ll win all the quiz games.
5 Make Steps Towards My Life and What I Actually Want To Do With It/Be More Organised. This really should be number 1. I haven’t fully pushed myself into the career i truly enjoy (acting and play writing) so i need to focus on jobs in my field and taking more risks, I had many opportunities last year that i didn’t go for because i was scared. That is no longer good enough. I would like to get to 30 and feel i can openly call myself an actor and writer. I will be more organised in taking directed steps forward, be determined and take risks, as although you never know whats written out for you, you can always change the text.
I look forward to using my Daily Greatness Journal as a guide to creativity and positivity.
Happy New Year!
