“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke
HAPPY NEW YEAR GIRLS! The year is 2017 and we are so ready for all of the great things in store. We hope YOU are ready, too.
What a wonderful quote by Rainer Rilke. And now we welcome the new year. What does that mean to you?
It makes me think of the resolutions that we make in the beginning of the year. We say all the things that we plan to do or change during this new year. It means that we welcome everything that comes with the new year. All the good, the bad, the exciting, the fun, the scary, everything.
It makes me hopeful because it gives me another reason to believe that I still have a chance to make my dreams come true. I still have a chance to accomplish my goals. I still have a chance to change my mind or move forward with a decision.
The new year itself brings so many people excitement because to them, its not just another day. To them, its a new beginning. Its a fresh start.
Many times in life we feel overwhelmed. We feel let down by life and the obstacles we face. We feel let down by people. The new year gives us hope that we do have the chance to be different and start over. There's nothing wrong with that.
In this new year let's be positive. Let's focus on what really matters. Let's make memories with our family and friends. Let's stop holding grudges because life is too short. Let's embrace the challenges that we face. Let's try to do something for the first time. Let's love each other more. Finally, this new year let's learn something new.
Here is YOUR to do list:
1. Be thankful for TODAY and everyday!
2. WRITE DOWN your goals for this year. Short and long term goals. For each goal, create a PLAN OF ACTION for how you are going to accomplish those goals.
3. Think POSITIVE. Give yourself daily affirmations.
4. Practice LOVE OF SELF.
5. COMMIT yourself to at least one hobby this year.
