The Big 4: My New Year Resolutions
New Years Resolutions
Every year we make them. I like to make New Year’s resolutions in order to set goals. Goals are often what drive us and give us incentive to keep persevering. Persistent living, that’s what this portion of my blog is named because we need to be determined to live despite the obstacles that come our way; and when we set goals, there are bound to be obstacles. Life will always be throwing us curve balls, but we need to endure and stick to our goals.
Alright, here are my resolutions for year 2018!
1. Wake up earlier
This resolution is actually on the top of my list. If you have ever met me, then you know that waking up early is actually the most difficult thing for me to do. Living with a chronic illness makes my sleep pattern completely out of whack; but, I know in my inner most self that waking up early will allow me to become more productive and able to enjoy life to the fullest.
2. Stop praying for healing and start praying for victories
Living with Fibromyalgia is a constant battle; so, instead of asking God to take it from me, I’m going to ask Him to give me both spiritual and emotional victories. I know that harder days will come; but, instead of turning to others or myself, my ultimate cry will be to God.
3. Incorporate personal development in my life
Often times I find myself getting stuck in a rut, never truly trying to better myself. I find that pride gets in the way of my growth. I think that I’m better than I am and don’t have to improve or learn, but that couldn’t be any further from the truth. There are so many improvements that I need to make in my life, and I know if I truly listen for the sake of understanding, then I will learn to improve different aspects of my life.
4. Eat clean
Last year I made the resolution to become more active, and I can proudly say that I have stuck firmly to that resolution; but, I have been slacking in the nutrition department. I find it so easy to just eat everything that has sugar, chocolate, cereals, candy; and, in 2017, I “cheated” a lot by eating gluten and cheese. This year I hope to strive to fuel my body with healthy, healing, and whole foods!
