New Year’s Resolution 09? BringIt.

The end of one year and the start of a new one is upon us. A time for reflection and looking ahead…what will we change in these new days? How will we improve for the better? What about our goals? Hopes? Dreams?

Ah yes, it is time for us to once again come face to face with the New Year’s Resolution.

It’s my guess that a good deal of us have probably experienced some sort of failure in past years. (Blunt as it sounds, you can’t make this stuff up.) So, acknowledging the past, what is there left to be afraid of? We’ve already experienced what it’s like to end up at the bottom, so where’s the harm in trying one more time and aiming a bit higher?

Here’s what I’m trying to get across: Clear away all that past and prepare yourself to start off the new year with a clean slate and open mind.  Pardon the reference, but as sung in High School Musical, we’re all in this together–as fellow motivators and motivatees (people that recieve motivation from others). So here’s some sincere motivation from yours truly:

You CAN Do It!

You CAN Do It!

Jot down those resolutions and stick ’em on the wall, mirror, fridge, or anywhere you think is a spot that will force you to read it over and over. Repitition is key here. Once you’ve got it the idea stuck in your head, go out and JUST DO IT. I know, way easier said than done, but imagine that feeling of success afterwards and maybe a shot at the best mood you’ve felt in months. 🙂

There’sMore: Aim to do your resolution for, say, two weeks straight. Then tell yourself to keep at it till the end of the month (you are, after all, already halfway there). Keep adding on to that limit, even if it’s just little chunks at a time. If you find yourself slipping a little after the first week, don’t let that get you down, because remember that there is no way in heck that you’re alone, no matter how bad you may feel about yourself.

AFinalNote: What’s my own personal resolution? To stop trying to do so many things at once, take it one day at a time, and hopefully be able to enjoy life more. This may sound overly contrasted with my self-professed pessimism in the last post (which, now that I think about it, is actually a good start on my resolution) but youknowwhat? There’s no doubt I’m feeling it–2009 is gonna be awesome and nothing is going to stop me from enjoying every moment of it. Care to join me?
