New Year's Resolutions
First and foremost, Happy New Year! I hope had a very happy and safe happy New Year this past week with friends and family. I sure know I did. Of course, it's sad to see 2012 now behind us, but I'm also extremely excited for what lies ahead. Personally, 2012 was easily the best year of my life thus far. I met some awesome people and achieved some amazing things, so I'm overly satisfied with how my year went in 2012. As great as last year was, I'll be looking to make 2013 even better. It'll be a challenge to accomplish such a task, but I'm always up for a challenge. If you didn't have a good year in 2012, then that alone should motivate you to make this year much better. Your past is irrelevant, as it's the future that truly matters. Strive to make 2013 your year to shine and never look back.
With the new year finally upon us, it's that time of the year again to start making new year's resolutions. It's quite common nowadays for people to give up on their resolutions shortly after making them, but separate yourself from those typical people by sticking to your resolution. Many people set goals to lose weight or to eat healthier, and while those resolutions are fine and dandy, they're a bit generic. Instead, make a resolution that can be specifically applied to you. Find an area in your life that you feel could use some work. Whether it be getting your work in on time or simply thinking more positive, there's always something you can work on. While it's impossible to achieve perfection, strive yourself on coming as close as possible. For example, I've always found that one of my biggest flaws is getting frustrated over the little things in life. I'll be looking to improve upon that over the course of this year and hoping that issue will be resolved by the year's end. Additionally, I've also made numerous goals I hope to achieve as well that mostly include my writing and other activities. It's never too late to set a goal, but start as soon as you possibly can. The feeling of accomplishing that goal is a surreal one. So, work towards that goal and stay motivated while doing so.
