Sometimes I feel like there is no point in making new years resolutions, in the first place why do you have to wait a whole year to make these resolutions? Why don’t I do this say monthly or even maybe daily/whenever is necessary? Secondly I feel like I always place such high demands on myself for the year that I end up not keeping most of them and then disappointing myself in the end, which never feels good! So this year, i’m not going to beat myself up about anything, this is what i’d like to do, i’ll do my best but if I was not able to do it all, oh well. Life, after all, is about giving it your best shot! I am also setting more realistic goals for myself! I decided to give This Is Essential‘s blog post a read to help me out; 8 Categories to consider when goal setting.
Here’s what I’ve come up with!
