Happy New Year

Welcome 2020!  Thought I’d give the old blog a try on the 1st of the year.  Here I am it’s 1:20am PST and giving it a go.  I am not one to make new year’s resolutions because by the 15th of the month I’d give up.  Honestly, I’d forget what they were - they just weren’t solid enough or life changing.

Instead of trying to stick to something that doesn’t really stick, I’m going into the new year with the most simple rules to live by.  They won’t have a deadline or some type of instant gratification tied to them.  Nope, not doing that this year.

So here’s a simple list I’ve put together for myself, in no particular order.  I hope you find it helpful, easy and perhaps you might join me.

1.  I am my own competition and in reality the only one that stands in my way.  So each day I will try to be a little better than I was the day before.  Reading, audiobooks, devotionals, journaling, etc.  (Self improvement) 

2.  Instead of telling myself “can’t eat this, can’t eat that”  I will change my dialogue to “I can have all these healthier option instead” I personally think that there are way more healthier meal options than there are bad ones, at least in my experience it’s just a lot easier to eat something healthier but the not so healthy options are always the more convenient and faster to get to.  (Make healthier choices)

3.  Counting my blessings everyday and being grateful for everything rather than complaining about all the things that I can’t control (like traffic, taxes).  (In everything give thanks) 

4.  I will surround myself with likeminded people who want to see me and others succeed.  I am a firm believer in the quote “We rise by lifting others” I like to see people around me happy and succeeding, there’s no greater joy than to see friends and family accomplish their goals.  Stay around positive people, there are plenty who will not want you to succeed “misery loves company” - those are the ones to steer clear from. (be around Positive people)

5.  Embrace.  Embrace the past, embrace the moment, embrace what the future brings.  Embracing change and the seasons of life we are in, for it’s in those moments where we can pause and realize that change and growth is taking place.  (Accept where you are - you won’t always be there - keep evolving)

Trying to be more present and intentional even in the smallest of things/moments.  Keeping it simple, not adding much stress to myself, I think those 5 rules should be pretty simple right?  

Wishing you a happy and prosperous new year!  Bye-bye 2019 - welcome 2020!
