Happy New Year, Everyone! I hope you are just as excited about 2014 as I am. A friend and I were making jokes about all the hilarious claims people make for their new year’s resolutions. Things like “I’m cutting people off in 2014” or “I’m going to start juicing everyday”. My question is, why do you have to wait for a new year to make changes in your life?
The way I see it, a new year just provides you a new time frame in which you can set and accomplish more goals. Sometimes it’s just easier to put action behind a goal at the beginning of a new year or new month as opposed to a random Saturday in March. However, you also have to stick with these goals in order to see a transition in your life. So when someone tells you on Jan 3rd, “It’s a new year and a new me”, I would politely say “Oh really? Let me know how you feel on December 31st.” It is after you have lived out the year and completed your goals or stuck to your “resolutions” when you know if you have transitioned into a new/better person.
I won’t list all of my goals on here, but I challenge you to create some with measurable check points through out the year. Vision boards or daily planners are always a great tool to help you focus. There are great things in store for Whitney Society and I would love to hear what you have planned for yourself in 2014!
