That fresh, clean feeling of the start of a New Year always makes me want to resolve to do a hundred things. Exercise more. Be a better friend. Write better stories. Stop eating sugar. Go to bed early… you get the idea.
Whether you are as intoxicated by New Year’s Resolutions like me, or just intoxicated (hey-o!!) remind yourself that you are only human.
It does us no good to self-judge ourselves when we make mistakes or miss the mark.
Go easy on yourself—
Learn to be more self-compassionate.
Good habits aren’t built in a day, they are built every day.
So if you mess up and eat a cookie, don’t quit. Start back up immediately with enthusiasm and desire to be better next time. Don’t let bad habits win.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
