Hi guys! *waving* Its been a while! You’ve been greatly missed by me! *smiles*
Yes oh! This is a post about new year resolutions…everybody wrote/talked about this at the beginning of the year, but Miss Purpleheart is just writing hers now *sigh*…oh well, like the saying goes “it is better late than never”.
I’ve actually been planning to post this for a while, but i just never got around to it, almost decided not to, but I banished the evil thought away quickly and here i am!!!
Okay so we’re close to the end of the first month of the year, and i’m sure many of you listed your goals/resolutions for the year…so, quick question; have you started working on your resolutions??? Cos i know it’s very easy to “fall of the wagon” when it comes to new year resolutions.
I set a few resolutions of my own early on in the year, and so far, I would say I’ve been doing great! If you haven’t been following through with your set resolutions, it’s not too late at all, it’s still January…so get started!
WHY SET RESOLUTIONS?
I know a lot of people who don’t agree with the idea of new year resolutions, well i beg to differ! A new year is an opportunity at a fresh start, so why not have a plan? Resolutions give you sense of purpose (depending on what they are though), you wake up everyday and you know there is something you’re working towards, that there is something you hope to have achieved by the time the year ends. Resolutions only work if you want them to work, it takes real determination.

Resolutions are an important recipe for self growth/development, it goes like this: you set a target for yourself-> you strive to reach set target-> you reach set target-> overwhelming sense of accomplishment attained-> a happier, more confident and self loving you!
Resolutions are like mini self made maps for the year. Of course things don’t always go as planned, but it is always good to set your sights on how you would like things to go; what you would like to change about/add to yourself, your environment and anything else you feel the need to. Resolutions require a certain level of self discipline to be followed through, i can tell you for sure that it’s not easy, not at all, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying, take it one day at a time and you just might surprise yourself!
I found this picture online on tips for keeping your new year resolutions…i hope it helps you keep yours!
So tell me, what resolutions have you made this year? Have you started working on them?
No resolutions yet? What’s holding you back from making some? Do share with me, i would love to hear your opinions!
