I used to be one of those people that had to make a New Year’s resolution. I just had to have goals to keep me on track. I credit that to 1) being driven AF and 2) being single. I was on a full-fledged quest to become the very best version of myself.
Competing in crossfit. Completing triathlons. Developing a love for bodybuilding. Competing in a fitness competition. Traveling the world with friends. Traveling the world alone. Chasing a new career. Receiving a promotion. Being a more engaged family member. Being a better friend. Learning to cook. Learning about wine.
I’ll save y’all some time. It was a LONG list.
As each year rolled in, I’d set my resolutions in stone and work incessantly to achieve them. But there was always something missing. I needed to be 100% happy ON MY OWN instead of looking to fill myself up with goals and resolutions.
It’s only after I stopped seeking what I wanted and let what I wanted find me have I truly become happy and content.
And so, I’ve learned an interesting, yet valuable lesson. Resolutions are bullshit. G-d laughs when we make plans. So in 2017, rather than make an exhaustive list of resolutions and accomplishments to chase after, I am simply making a conscious effort to do more… and less… of things that either bring… or rob… me of joy.
And here they are:
More hot yoga.
More foam rolling.
More time at home.
Whether you’re a resolution person or not – I sincerely hope 2017 is chock full of wonderful things that bring you happiness and joy. And if it doesn’t, just let that sh*t go.
Cheers to the excitement of a New Year! Stay happy beauties 🙂
