I’m pretty sure you’ve seen various versions of said “how to keep your resolutions in check” post floating across the internet…something along the lines, at least.
Well i’m guilty of both: the reading and writing side. For the longest time I clutched this notion, believing resolutions were the golden ticket to life’s perfect progression.
Looking back, the idea sounded like a drowsy afterthought.
That silly, naive train of thought, believing a day’s worth of planning and mediating over a goal will magically transform me into a lean, vegan blogger overnight. You know what i’m talking about.
I mean, sure resolutions hold a significant amount of motivation and optimism; HOWEVER in all practicality, it’s not the thought that counts.
We obsess over a potential healthy streak, which is typically the problem. Most of them never come to fruition, or typically end their course within a span of 2-3 weeks.
This year, I want to live life intentionally.
Ditching the novelties that keep me from achieving the necessary action at hand. No more journaling cute goals and buying supplemental products. I’ll simply get up and do things right when the thought strikes.
If there’s one practical advice I can give you, it’s this:
So many use every energy, imagining the end result and not leaving enough for the actual work that’s ahead. Consequently, the so-called “resolution” never come to fruition. Reality never seeped through the cracks of imagination.
