I know it’s the 20th of January but I was thinking about my New Years Resolutions. I believe that the best kind of resolutions is the ones you naturally do with no force, and without writing down. Sort of like internal goals you have always been wishing to do but never do it. For example, I was always scared to drive. I had panic attacks and anxiety thinking about driving and the fear of messing up. But one day I decided to just grab the keys and go drive around the neighboorhood. Then I decided to drive to my boyfriend’s house which is about 30-40 to go. And by realizing what I was doing I knew I would have to take him back home AND drive myself back within that day. And I felt good. I conquered my fear. Internally I knew that was one of my resolutions and I accomplished it with simple effort.
Now that got me thinking. I should have a resolutions list, just to keep track and remind myself of the lifestyle I want for 2018. One of them would be running and healthy eating. Now, I walk a lot about few miles every day. But I wanted to push myself more. As soon as I got back to campus I started going to the free gym for my apartment. It just started happening and I have never felt better. I even got all my roommates to start coming with me and my boyfriend to the gym!
Change is good, especially if it is for the better of your life and others. I hope that you will sit down and realize that making a change, for whatever kind of reason, is worth the beautiful mindset you will have in the end.
These are my resolutions.
