The beginning of a new year is always a great opportunity to reassess, reevaluate, cleanse and purge. I’m not fond of resolutions, I am more of a believer of setting yearly goals while also vowing to purge and let go of things that no longer serve my well being. 2014 marks the beginning of my 25th year of life. I’m excited because I feel it’s a perfect time for me to embark on many more adventures and really start to figure out who I am spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, etc.
I am vowing to dedicate more time to doing things that I love. Life is too short and beautifully precious to waste on doing things you don’t love. I vow to cook more and share my amazing creations with all of you.
I promise to be more selfish, to learn to say no, to really value myself more. We underestimate how important it is to say “NO.” Saying no is empowering, allowing you to feel free. Forget the guilt, why should I feel guilty for simply saying no. I cannot do it all and I shouldn’t have to. I am allowed to say no!
I vow to get back into being more active. A few of my goals this year are fitness oriented. I want to do Yoga Teacher Training, run a half marathon and complete a Tough Mudder. Sounds a bit crazy but I will make it happen. I want to make my 25th year a great one!
I promise to trust the universe more. The universe is really intelligent. I think we forget that there is a lot that is not in our control. The more we try to control things, the less likely we are able to control it. By surrendering to the universe, I know that things will work out fantastically for me. I do not need to be in control of every aspect of my life. Repeat it with me: I do not need to control every aspect of my life. There is a great post on Tinybuddha.com on letting go of control. I highly recommend it!
For now, these are great resolutions/revelations/goals. I am sure I will have more and will be happy to share with you all!
I wish you a happy and prosperous new year!
Peace, love and no beef!
