A new year

Happy New year!!

Happy new year:

So this is the first day of a new year, and for many of us it holds a sort of excitement, or expectations.
A new year seems like a fresh start, a clean slate.
And it kind of is...
we make our resolutions and promises to ourselves that this year will be so much better than the last ,we`ll achieve more, do more, be more. Be fulfilled in every possible way.

Don`t get me wrong, there`s absolutely nothing wrong with setting goals , it`s just that ,in my own experience, it makes me feel  desperate and actually a little sad.

Because i really want to succeed, and i want my dreams to come true.

So maybe i need to change my perspective a little.

 Basically set my big dreams into smaller achievable goals,
take smaller steps if you will.. that way my big dream won`t be so overwhelming.

Like say if you want to lose weight, say 20lbs (or 10 kg)  , start with 1lb/1kg at a time.
Eventually you`ll reach that goal. Thinking about the big number can be too overwhelming.

I think to set happy goals for yourself is important too.
I find i always set goals to better myself, goals that demands quite a bit of effort on my part.

Maybe set goals that doesn`t take so much effort.
Like taking time to do something nice for yourself , every day or once a week.
Something that makes you happy.

Or maybe even do something to make someone else happy.

Endless possibilities really.

So Happy New Year, may this year be filled with happiness, may you find peace of mind and may your dreams come true.
But last, may you find joy in the little things, in the moments of each and every day.

See my 2014 resolutions on Pinterest and read more about them on my blog:

Have a beautiful day!
