2016 was a horrible year, it was the worst not just locally but globally. I made the decision that 2017 would be so much better. I came up with a few new years resolutions, not too little but not too many. Ones that seemed reasonable, that I felt that I could actually keep to.
Normally each year I get drunk with friends and say “I will get married by the end of the year, obviously it doesn’t happen or I decide to give up sugar but that never happens either…or coffee, like that’s ever going to happen. This year however I was sick in bed and for once made the most reasonable new years resolutions ever so here they are;
- To compliment myself once a day
- To make sure that I do things because I want to do them and not because someone else wants me to
- Take fruit as an option over chocolate most of the time
Now the first one is quite easy, but it helps me to love myself again, once I love myself again option two will fall into place, once I love myself again option three will fall into place. It’s a systematic approach. Now it works, I’m eating grapes while telling myself that my outfit is cute today. I decided not to go out last night because I didn’t want to, everyone begged me to but I said no and I feel happy, confident and in control.
So my point is … the new years resolutions that have worked linked, they were reasonable and doable and help my mental health. I’m happy I don’t feel like a failure yet.
So we want you to tell us your resolutions
Love you lots like expresso shots
