A new years resolution is a commitment that one makes to a personal goal or to break a bad habit. I decided that I was going to make my new years resolution something personal to me, because I’m just not ready to let go of my bad habits just yet. My birthday is very close to new years which makes this time extra special to me. I really reflect on the year and think about what I want to do in the coming year. After doing some pondering, i’ve decided the best way to sum up how I want to live in 2012, is to live with more purpose and intent. I want to be more conscious when I make decisions in my life. The goals I have made for this year are more likely to be achieved if I make more informed decisions. I can no longer just hope that things will come my way, I need to put in the action one step at a time. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed with achieving things, that I get frustrated and waste so much time complaining and getting more and more aggravated about the situation I created. After I’ve finished throwing my tantrum, I realize that it got me nowhere except it allowed me to procrastinate even more! I need to stop being so lazy, and drifting through life. Each day I need to take a step into my intention. I am making a commitment to myself and to my everyone who is reading this now that I am going to live each day with more purpose and intent from this day forward.
