I think this infographic is so truthful and important to reflect on as we go into the new year. Who are you now? Who do you want to be in 2014?
A page I follow on Facebook challenged people to write 25 accomplishments they achieved in 2013. And it actually was very hard! The Husband had to help me out with a few. Why is it so easy to remember what went wrong, but so hard to remember what went right. It’s so simple to think of all the things you did wrong; failed to do; should have done…but to think about what you did archive takes more time than it should.
So here is what I am thinking; in 2014 I refuse to make resolutions — but I do want to make plans. So look out for my post on plans, and be ready to make some of your own! Let’s focus on our successes this year, eh? Let’s focus on making ourselves what we are Proud to be, not what the world wants to box us into being. So be a nerd, be smart, be the best size 8/12/16/24 you can be, enjoy fresh bread and cheese with no remorse; if you fail to workout for a week keep loving yourself; if you don’t know what you want to be when you grow up — cool neither do I!; if you want to cook dinner for your husband every night – do it and still be a proud feminist! Let’s stop boxing ourselves in, and let’s start letting ourselves out — cause there is one thing I’m so happy I did that didn’t make the list … I let go on my honeymoon and found myself standing on the top deck of a pirate ship dancing in the rain off the beaches of Barbados. How cool is that? And things like that don’t happen when you box yourself into expectations — they happen when you let yourself go and experience life :).
Happy New Year — enjoy every moment you can! <3
