Have you made your New Year’s resolutions yet?
Last year, my resolution was the cliche, to lose ten pounds. I am happy to say that I have completed that goal and then some and am currently sitting at thirty pounds lost so far! Some days, I don’t believe how far I’ve come, but on the days that I put on a piece of clothing that I haven’t been able to wear for years and it fits, I am amazed and it helps to keep me going.
I personally feel that it is important to make New Year’s Resolutions. Mostly because it gives you a chance to show yourself what you are made of. It all starts and ends with you. Which leads me to my one suggestion when thinking of a resolution… make sure you are doing it for yourself, and no one else. If you start with doing something for yourself, you have a better chance of finishing it because you start to realize and see that you are worth it and your world becomes brighter for it.
Let me say… it took me way to long to realize this.
This year, my resolutions are just to keep up with eating healthier and exercising and to finish Photography School. This time next year I hope to be blogging about how I’ve toned up my body and have become certified as a Professional Photographer. Needless to say I am excited and look forward to what the next year will hold and the challenges and rewards that I will face during it.
What are your resolutions? Have you had great success with them in the past?
