Oh, hey 2017. A new year of opportunities. It holds so much potential, but to make the most out of our year we must embrace each + every day that lies ahead of us. Let’s make this a year to simply be.
Be present. Be engaged. Be adventurous. Be successful. Betox.
Lets make it a year of yes.
Yes to new ideas, to new thoughts, to new hobbies, to new routines. Say yes to things that you otherwise wouldn’t. Say yes to things that make you uncomfortable. Say yes to spending time with friends + family. Say yes to ‘me time’. Say yes to food. Use “yes” to grow as an individual.
It must also be a year of no.
Say no to people + places that are dragging you down. Say no to feeling like you have to do it all. Day to day, our lives are filled with people feeding us information in one ear, our phones ringing in the other ear, booked with appointments + to do’s. Work hard, but not too hard. Simply say no + find the time to let yourself relax. Use “no” to grow as an individual.
It must be a year of reflection.
At the end of each month, reflect on what that given month has taught you. If you’re ambitious, reflect at the end of each day. Reflect on the things that make you happy, sad, thankful, angry. Take note of the beautiful moments throughout your day, week, month & use them to grow.
It must be a year of love.
In a world with so much turmoil, remind your friends + family of your love. Smile at a stranger. Give someone a compliment. We could all use a little more love in this world.
It must be a year of goals.
Set a goal in mind. A quantifiable, achievable goal. One which you can track your progress. It may not be a linear path to success, but if you keep your eye on the goal, you will be amazed at all that you are capable of.
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” – Oscar Wilde
How will you make this your best year yet?
