There’s just a few more days before 2019 begins. The hype of the New Year is all around. It’s everywhere on social media, in emails, and reminders everywhere. Tradition says that you should make a New Year resolution list every year and write your resolutions down and share them. This year I’m having a hard time deciding what to focus on. I really don’t know what 2019 will bring so I’ve decided to take it one day at a time. Every year since I can remember I have made at least one resolution, and written it down, said it out loud, and done the whole tradition. Although, as the New Year approaches, I find myself with more anxiety and pressure to make a resolution. I really don’t know how to feel about this. Today I am sharing are a few things I’m doing to get the most out of this tradition without the stress of it all. So let’s talk about the New Year tradition of resolutions and how to make realistic goals for the next year.
Social Media Inspiration
In the past few days there has been so many positive messages and resolutions floating around social media and I’m sure there is more to come. But today, I saw something positive, but different and relate-able that I wanted to share. This caption really inspired me.
It read: “Who is excited for 2019? Every New Year I feel like a new me! Every day is a blessing and I couldn’t be more happy with the way 2018 is ending for me and my family! For this year I really don’t have any resolutions that I want to say out loud, keeping my big list to myself!” @andy_styl3.
This caption spoke to me. So today I am here to say, It’s ok if you don’t have a long list of resolutions. If you do, it’s totally fine if you don’t want to share them with anyone. Maybe, this year can be the start of something great for you but in a quiet way. I don’t know what 2019 will bring, but I’m feeling like it’s going to be a great year full of blessings, and changes.
Why Keep it Quiet?
I’ve recently become a big believer in keeping things quiet until you get where you want to be. It’s sometimes hard to work in silence but in the end it’s worth it. Now…this doesn’t mean don’t ask for help or use the resources you have to achieve your goals. It’s always good to reach out and make connections with people who are where you would like to be. But keep your priorities straight and work every day closer to your goals, and don’t forget to celebrate the small successes as well as the big ones.
Keep it Realistic
Lastly, make your resolutions realistic. Start small and work your way up to the big things. This helps me a lot when it comes to work and blogging goals. So if you have a huge goal you would like to achieve in 2019. Take small steps each day towards that goal. By the middle of the year you will be surprised how far you’ve gotten.
Here’s wishing you all a wonderful 2019 filled with lots of love, blessings and happiness surrounded by the ones you love. Happy New Year
