I am such a big fan of fresh starts it’s ridiculous. I’m the girl that loves Mondays just because it’s a chance to make the new week better than the last one. To me, a new year is the ultimate start over and I always try to pick a good resolution. Sometimes they’re impractical (like two years ago when I vowed to give up sugar all year – riiiiight) but regardless, I’m trying! And I think that’s what’s really important.
On my constant quest to live a better life, this year I really thought long and hard about what I wanted to try in the new year. Lately, I have felt dragged down and generally not like myself. Constantly fatigued and tired, I could feel my energy waning. It greatly effected my mood and more important, my outlook on life. I try (and mostly succeed) to see the beauty in most situations. But sometimes, and more lately than ever, my negative side has been more prominent than my happy, sunny side.
So on New Years I decided that I would try to tackle this negative side and attempt to live life more positively. How will I do this? Well, it’s not going to be easy. An attitude change is something hard to do, but something that only practice will be able to make better. If I practice thinking positive thoughts, about my health, my looks, my relationships, my life, etc it will eventually get easier to think that way most of the time. Negative thoughts will never go away but feeding into them less and less can make them seem less important and less daunting. So this is the year of positive thinking, and I’m excited about what it will bring! xoxo
