Well, Hello! It is 2016 and I have been quiet these past few weeks. I needed some time to refocus and prioritize life and now I am back.
As it is my first real post of 2016 I want to address a common theme for the New Year. Resolutions. I do not make traditional New Years resolutions. When I think of something I would like to change or include in my life, I get started on it pretty quickly. Taking advantage of my excitement and energy, in order to create a new habit. This practice of mine leads me with little ideas for a resolution when the New Year finally arrives. However the past couple of years I started a tradition of my own. I choose a motto for the year, and write that baby down in journals, on notepads, and keep it as the screen saver on my phone as a constant reminder. Last year it was “expect less, appreciate more“. Seeing those words several times a day really did change my way of thinking.
I thought I would share this year’s motto with you. I chose it on New Years Day and I love it each time I read it. Are you ready?
“Attract what you expect. Reflect what you desire. Become what you respect. Mirror what you admire.”
What do you think? It is different than a normal resolution but incorporates the change I would like to see in my life in 2016. Looking forward to seeing how I follow my motto this year!
