HAPPY NEW YEAR, YOU GUYS! 🙂
I can’t even begin to share my excitement for ALL of us
We have 365 days to do whatever it is we set ourselves out to do
However, as much as I love the concept of thinking of the entire year ahead of us to reach our goals
There’s nothing like taking it one day at a time
Don’t you think?
“Patience & persistence” are my two focus words this year
Or as Ry would say, “your two peas (p’s)” haha!
I need to always go back to them when I get discouraged
So I’m writing them down in my room’s white board as an everyday reminder
I feel I always reach more of my goals when I think of them more often
And that’s one way I found has worked best for me in 2016
What are you doing this year to keep yourself accountable for your goals?
Another best practice is planning out your week on a Sunday
That’s one best practice I didn’t do in 2016. And that I am almost 100% sure would’ve made ALL THE DIFFERENCE
The saying,“If you don’t plan to succeed, you plan to fail” is beyond true!
If I had a consistent gym schedule,and meal schedule planned out- I’d be in better shape today
I could sit here and beat myself up for it and be upset
(I kind of already did do all that)
But I should just take it as a lesson learned and not repeat the same mistake again!
LASTLY, this year will be the year I use my cell phone THE LEAST!
I plan to use my cell the least amount of time as possible, mostly just to blog and make important calls.
Cell phones are the reason relationships are failing, friends aren’t communicating and ideas are not being born
I want to let my mind wander, I want to listen more, to live more, to love more.
I’ve already started this rule with a few friends
I went out with two of my girlfriends and we didn’t have our cell phones on us
We had the BEST conversations with zero distractions and were able to fully enjoy each other’s company
I also did that with Ryan this weekend and we had the best weekend talking about everything imaginable
It was truly wonderful to be in the moment with the people I love
When was the last time you were truly present?
It’s sad to think of all the people sitting at a dinner table with their family/friends, texting someone who’s not there
It’s sad to think of how our generation has changed (for the worst when it comes to self-confidence & happiness)
But it takes one person to make this world a better place
And I hope this gets you inspired to do the same!
LET’S MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOGETHER
