New year's resolutions are a funny topic. Almost everyone makes them, some people have given up on making them, and only a startling 8%
of people are successful in their resolutions.
The problem is in the restrictions. "i want to lose weight" "eat less" "complain less"
I have had resolutions like these too and they never work.
Restrictions, or doing LESS of something is the hardest thing to accomplish.
So this year I will be doing MORE!
More forgiveness for myself and others
This will be far easier to accomplish than:
Less being lazy
When I focus on less, I find myself becoming attracted to those things I want less of. By focusing on what I want more of, I am hoping to attract those things to my life instead.
The next step is to break it down into accomplishable goals.
Vegetables and fruit: try for at least the daily recommendations or more! (7-10 servings)
Gratitude/Spirituality: Journal, create art, or meditate 15 minutes a day (this I have already started but it will be awesome to continue)
Running: Run 365 miles in 2014
I really believe this is the key to more lasting change. Eventually the good habits you invite more and more of will crowd out the bad ones. It may happen more slowly, but it is also permanent.
So that is my 2014! I am really looking forward to a year of more!!!
