Stop in to visit a nursing home and ask if anyone there doesn’t have visitors. If so, introduce yourself and spend some time with that person.
Drop off food at a shelter to help someone in need over the weekend. You never know what good things can come from a small act of kindness.
Hey y’all, so I know I’m a bit late on putting my New Year’s resolutions up, but I promise you, I had them written on New Year’s Eve! Between traveling and then the jet lag, I just didn’t have the time I wanted to get them up, but they are here now! I’m putting them up here to help hold myself accountable, as I have several friends who read this and can make sure I’m keeping up with my goals 😉 But I’m also doing it to share with others, and maybe someone reading this will find they want to add to their list from mine.
New Year’s Resolutions
- Be honest about my feelings. Yeah, jumped right into this one, for too long I know myself, and plenty of others, have been hiding feelings or not being honest about them, and for myself at least, that stops now. Feelings aren’t always great, but it’s important to not minimize or pretend they aren’t there.
- Keep up with that fitness. I’ve been pretty good about fitness, but it never hurts to make sure I keep it a priority by putting it on this list.
- Live in the moment. With everything going on, and our giant to-do lists and full calendars, this one can be challenging, but I am ready to give it a try. I’d say immersing myself in what Paris had to offer was a good start.
- Live each day with kindness. I know some days can be trying, and I don’t always have the best reaction to stress, but I can fix that with a quick shift in my attitude.
- Name something I’m grateful for each day. It’s amazing what a little gratitude can do for each day.
- Be neater. Some of you may be shocked to learn that I am not the neatest person ever. But that doesn’t mean I’m not trying to work on that, and this new year is the perfect time to start fresh.
- Volunteer more. Giving back is important, and volunteering is one of the best ways to do it.
- Save, save, save. I have several things that I want to do, and the only way I’m going to get there is if I save up some funds for it. So for me, that’s a huge priority, I’m 26, and need to focus on my savings a bit more.
- Be open to new opportunities. There have been several times that I’ve overthought something to the point that it’s gone, and I don’t want to do that anymore, so I’m going to be open to new opportunities as they present themselves.
That may not be everything on my list, but to be fair, I’m very thorough, and I really like lists, so my resolutions are rather long. However, these are some of the most important ones to me, and I can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store. I’m hoping for health, blessings, and dreams coming true for myself, and each and every one of you.
Go to your local animal shelter, work at a local food bank, walk for charity, volunteer your time in some way to help others.
