2014: Striving to be better

2014: Striving to be better

Happy New Years to all my lovely readers! I hope this
year will be a good one and one better than the last!

Getting right down to business, I have to admit I don’t
believe in new year’s resolutions. I mean, you make them and stick to them for
a week, perhaps two. And then you forget and it’s just not very useful at all!
I think it’s best to make resolutions and goals throughout the year and really
stick to them. I know that at the New Year you can’t help thinking about things
you would like to change about yourself though. It’s a fresh start! So today I
wanted to share with you three things I’m going to strive to be this coming
year.

 Open-minded

 

I want to be open-minded so I can see things from
different points of views. I don’t want to be those who are swift to take
offense in a discussion or debate, I want to be open to new ideas and absorb
new concepts. I don’t want to be so open-minded that I let people walk by and
fill my head with all sorts of nonsense. There’s a balance here that I’m hoping
to find.

Determined

 
 
I want to be determined through all that I do. If I am
going to take a test, I’m going to prepare for it. If I want to publish
something by March, I am going to do it. If I believe in something and I want
it so badly, with God and determination it can happen!

Positivity

This is definitely the one I struggle with the most. I’m
not entirely sure when it happened or when the change occurred, but I’ve come
to realize by other people’s comments that I am more of a pessimist these days
than an optimist. I tend to think negatively of myself immediately without
think positive and thinking I can get there. And I’m tired of not liking myself
or pushing myself down so much because I think I don’t make the cut. The only
cut you need to make, or I need to make is the one in your head. And if it’s
too high, then lower it today. Because when you make small goals and make them,
you feel 100% better than when you make a unrealistic goal and never get there.

I hope from now on my posts sound more happy,
open-minded, positive and determined. I am also determined to keep this blog up
regularly and make it a bit bigger in followers!

Happy New Year everyone! What do you want to accomplish
this year?
