Breaking My New Year’s Resolutions Already?!

Every year millions of people make resolutions for the new year per tradition. Self-help books and magazines fly off the shelves. Gyms undoubtedly see an increase in memberships. The weight loss industry makes millions as people try to shed the extra holiday pounds yet again. Everyone is ultimately trying to become a better person, whether physically, mentally, spiritually, and/or financially.

The new year brings upon a feeling of a new start, a clean slate if you will.

I am one of the millions of people who made New Year’s resolutions. It’s only been a few weeks into the new year, and I realize I haven’t quite mastered the art of sticking to my new years resolutions already.   😦 I feel guilty but I also am happy I am aware that I could be doing better. After all, the first step is admitting you have a problem.

Not to worry, I have about 48-49 more weeks of 2016 to continue working on these resolutions. Improving your self is a process, and not meant to happen overnight.

Check out my video below on the resolutions I’ve already messed up on / haven’t started yet.

I would love to hear from you. Share your thoughts below!

Goodbye 2014! Hello 2015 ;)

Happy New Year Champagne 2015 (click to view)

Just like many others, I am welcoming 2015 with wide open arms! I am embracing the new year and the new memories that are in store for me.

Every new year brings about excitement and inspiration. It’s a time where most are inspired to make their lives better in anyway possible. Today, the last day of the year, is the day we reflect on our choices for the last 365 days. Did we keep our resolutions? Did we achieve any new feats? And ultimately, are we happy with ourselves and our life?

This year for me was emotionally taxing. I spent the majority of it in a moderate depression and the general feeling of unhappiness. Some family issues arose and pushed me to ultimate stress levels. So, hence why I am running to the new year , just praying things will be different!

I’m not saying my life was horrible, because it wasn’t and I did get to do some awesome things in 2014. But the unhappiness in my life forced me to make drastic decisions and step outside of my comfort zone. That’s exactly when things began to look up for me.

I’m already sure that 2015 will be different. Hopefully, there will be quite a few changes. Although change makes me anxious, I am oh so ready for it!

Here are my 2015 New Years Resolution:

  • Be punctual
  • Having perseverance in all things I do
  • Improving my health (mind + body)
  • Continue to push myself out of my own comfort zone

In the comment section below, share with me some of your new years resolutions? Did you accomplish any that you set for 2014?

Until next time world…
