Regardless of whether you have a New Year’s resolution or not, as December comes to an end it’s only natural to reflect back on the year that has passed.
REALNESS: The weeks leading up to December 31st are often the most difficult for me emotionally. I tend to be hard on myself every so often and the natural nostalgia that comes along with yet another year coming to a close brings that side of me to the surface. 2013 + 2014 had their blessings but they were by no means “easy” years for me. Trying my best to keep balancing my work and personal life has been fun but exhausting. When you’re really busy, it’s easy to get caught up in day to day demands and lose sight of the bigger picture. I made the decision to spend the final two weeks of the year, enjoying just living without deadlines for a moment and getting clear about what I really want to do and how.
New Year’s Resolutions Never Work
Maybe that’s a dramatic statement, but I feel like most people forget about their resolutions within the first few weeks of the New Year. I believe in starting your New Year’s resolutions (or any goals in general) ASAP, not waiting for the first of the year, the first of the month, the first day of the week, etc. START AS SOON AS YOU CAN and you can almost always do SOMETHING in ANY MOMENT that can move you forward.
