As we enter the new year 2018, a lot of opportunities has been given to us in order to make positive changes in our lives, this is a new year, new beginnings.
I am sure a lot of us still believe in the tradition of writing new year’s resolution, I am guilty of that. I have noticed that as the year reach to an end we normally put so much pressure on ourselves. We feel guilty and like failures when we do not cross everything on our resolution list, but that is not suppose to be the case. People grow in different ways, sometimes we focus so much on the written goal and we forget to adjust ourselves when life pushes us in a different direction. Just because you did not lose that 5kg you set to lose at the beginning of the year, it does not make you a failure instead, life shows you where and how you need to work on yourself, and that might be your lack of commitment to plans or the fact that you just plain lazy. I honestly think we should first work on the things that delay us from reaching our goals than the goal itself.
This is the new year, new beginnings which means I should first be realistic about the situation I am into, then create little steps to take me to the main goal. Sometimes we hard on ourselves and forget to enjoy life. Have a bigger plan for your life but also break it down into little goals, start achieving the small ones and celebrate it. Before you know it you will be achieving the main goal. If you cannot be committed to the small stuff, how can you trust yourself achieving the main one? start small and then work your way to the top.
Do not be hard on yourself, a lot of people put pressure on themselves, I am one of them. It is my goal this year to let go of perfection and control in order to enjoy life.
